Effect of patch size on species richness and distribution of sub-alpine saxicolous lichens

Abraham Adida, Melody Griffith, Margot Kirby & Amanda Lin
Understanding how communities respond to environmental pressures is important for conservation planning and management. In this observational study, we examined the SLOSS debate and the ecological concept of nestedness in respect to how saxicolous lichen communities in sub-alpine habitats are structured. We analyzed the effects of patch size on the species richness and distribution of saxicolous lichen. We surveyed 242 granitic rocks in the White Mountains, California, and collected data on the different taxa found....
