Using lichens as physiological indicators of sulfurous pollutants

Journal Article:

Abstract

Lichens are known to be extremely sensitive to sulfurous pollutants and have thus disappeared from the regions around urban areas. The authors give the physiological background to this sensitivity and an outline for a test system for sulfurous pollutants based on lichens.
