This report is the result of a workshop held in Denver, Colorado on April 9-11, 1991. It summarizes the current literature and techniques for using lichens to monitor air quality. Experts in lichenology and ecology contributed information on lichen floristics, characterization of monitoring sites, lichen species and communities, identifying lichen species sensitive to pollutants, active monitoring with transplants, chemical analysis of lichens, and case studies as examples of lichen biomonitoring scenarios.
Keywords: lichens, air quality, biomonitoring, lichen floristics, lichen communities, gradient analysis, air pollution, sensitive lichen species, elemental analysis, study designs, quality assurance/quality control
