Title: An important lichen of southeastern Montana rangelands

Author: McCracken, James G.; Alexander, Lynn E.; Uresk, Daniel W.;

Date: 1983

Source: Journal of Range Management. 36(1): 35-37.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The lichen (Parmelia chlorochroa) was most abundant in sagebrush and grassland vegetation associations, less so in the pine, and absent in riparian types. It was significantly associated with drier sites and bare ground. Lichens appear to have value in reducing erosion, as indicators of intensive grazing, and in contributing to the nutrient quality of soils.

Keywords: Parmelia chlorochroa, erosion, grazing, nutrients, soils
