Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 12465
Lichens are a symbiosis between lichenized fungi, photosynthetic partners, and associated microorganisms. In this Special Issue of the Journal of Fungi, entitled Species Diversity, Ecology and Evolutionary History of Lichenized Fungi, we invite contributions that address fundamental questions to move the field forward with respect to the evolutionary history and physiology of lichenized fungi, their conservation biology, and the drivers of species diversity in their communities.
We are specifically looking for studies covering the following topics:
- Community ecology of lichenized fungi, associated microorganisms, drivers of species diversity, and lichen responses to environmental change;
- Conservation biology, conservation genetics, and dispersal of lichenized fungi;
- Evolutionary history, phylogeography, and population variation in lichenized fungi and associated microorganisms;
- Physiology of lichenized fungi and associated microorganisms.
