Professor Emeritus Ana Rosa Burgaz, Complutense University of Madrid, has made remarkable contributions to the field of Spanish lichenology. Her research has been focused particularly on the diversity of lichen in the Iberian Peninsula and the taxonomy of Cladoniaceae. She directed the project "Flora Liquenológica Ibérica", being the author of several volumes. More recently, she published the book "Mediterranean Cladoniaceae". We should note her great contributions to the Spanish lichen collections, most of them (ca. 30,000 specimens) in the MACB herbarium, but she has also frequently sent duplicates to other Spanish and foreign herbaria (MA, H). Ana has been greatly involved in the promotion of lichenology and in the training of several generations of students, researchers, and professional lichenologists. She has been a very active member and the driving energy behind the Spanish Lichen Society, being the president from 2003 to 2007. Therefore, in recognition of her for outstanding achievements and contribution to lichenology, we are delighted to publish a Festschrift in her honor as a Special Issue of the Journal of Fungi.
The scope of this Special Issue ranges across all aspects of lichen-forming fungi and lichenicolous fungi research, including diversity, phylogenetics, biogeography, community and population ecology, conservation, physiology, taxonomy, and systematics. Research, review articles, and short communications are welcome.
