DNA-Barcoding of the moss-dwelling representatives of the lichen genus Rinodina (lichenized Ascomycetes, Physciaceae)
Higher Alpine altitudes are characterized by the dominant symbiotic life form of the lichens. The moss-dwelling taxa of the genus Rinodina are potential bioindicators for the impact of climate change on alpine habitats. The aim of this project is to resolve the systematics of this group with the help of molecular data.
Add-on Project of the FWF-Project 25078-B16: Lichens of the Alps: diversity and climate change.
