USGS launches online database: Lichens in National Parks

July 18, 2005

If you are interested in lichens and National Parks, now you can query a lichen database that combines these two elements. Using pull-down menus you can: search by park, specifying either species list or the references used for that area; search by species (a report will show the parks in which species are found); and search by reference codes, which are available from the first query. The reference code search allows you to obtain the complete citation for each lichen species listed in a National Park.

The result pages from these queries can be printed directly from the web browser, or can be copied and pasted into a word processor.
