Abstract

RUBIO, Cecilia et al. EPIPHYTIC LICHENS OF CONGUILLÍO NATIONAL PARK, SOUTHERN CHILE. Gayana Bot. [online]. 2013, vol.70, n.1, pp.66-81. ISSN 0717-6643.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-66432013000100008.

One hundred and thirty eight epiphytic lichen species in 40 genera, are recorded from Conguillio National Park (38°30'-38°50' S; 71°30'-71°55' W), with predominancy of typically southern South American species. Lichen diversity is high, about 9 % of the lichen mycobiota from Chile, due mainly to species of the genera Bunodophoron, Menegazzia, Nephroma,, Pannaria, Protousnea and Pseudocyphellaria. Levels of endemism are rather high (nearly 40 %); also austral and cosmopolitan species, about 19 % and 16 % respectively, are the most representative biogeographical elements in the Park.

Keywords : Endemism; epiphytes; lichens; phorophytes; wild protected areas.
