Survey of British lichens

Scope of the project

The aim of the project is to record to species level the lichens present within members’ localities. With most Quekett members being in the UK, the data will contribute to our understanding of which species are common and which are rare across the British Isles.

Project length

Six months.

Data recording methods

By spreadsheet either electronically or hard copy.

Project specific equipment required

The first 30 participants will be provided with free copies of the Field Study Council’s Guides to Common Urban Lichens No. 1 (trees and wood) and Common Urban Lichens No. 2 (stone and soil).
