Title: Air quality in California forests: current efforts to initiate biomonitoring with lichens.

Author: Jovan, Sarah.;

Date: 2002

Source: Bulletin of the California Lichen Society. 9(2): 1-5

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The primary objective of the Forest Health Monitoring indicator project is to develop models that use the composition of epiphytic lichen communities to detect and monitor air quality in forests. The designs of existing air quality monitoring networks in California do not provide adequate representation of rural areas to assess impacts to forests. This article is designed to provide readers with a brief synopsis of air quality monitoring in north-central California, an overview of current air quality issues in the area, and an introduction to plans for monitoring air quality in forests with lichens.

Publication Notes:

  • We recommend that you also print this page and attach it to the printout of the article, to retain the full citation information.
  • This article was written and prepared by U.S. Government employees on official time, and is therefore in the public domain.
