Macrolichen Richness in North AmericaFIA plots sample forested regions of the U.S. Deserts, grasslands, and completely urbanized areas are excluded. If you enter coordinates for one of those areas, the estimates of lichen species richness are based on the closest plots in forested areas. These may not be representative of your specific location. In some cases, however, you may find that one or two plots in urbanized areas near you have been recorded.
Enter the location to get the expected local mean, 10th and 90th percentile of epiphytic macrolichen species richness on a 0.4 hectare (1 acre) plot.
