Abstract

Some aspects of lichen biology are poorly understood. For example, reproductive strategies are essentially unknown. It has been commonly assumed that lichens mainly reproduce asexually and on this basis a relatively high degree of genetic uniformity might be expected. Nevertheless, there is little available evidence pertaining to the genetic structure of lichen populations.
