Title: Changing lichen flora of leicestershire

Abstract

The lichen flora of the Leicestershire area from Renaissance times onward has been painstakingly reconstructed from old records in the museums and libraries in the UK. The lichen flora has obviously been dramatically affect by man's activities, starting with the clearing of the virgin timber stands on the island, and continuing through the air pollution effects associated with the industrial revolution. Maps of the population distributions are presented, as are graphs of air pollution (sulfur dioxide) over the past several decades. 97 references, 4 figures, 4 tables.
