The complexity of lichen symbioses: Novel interdisciplinary approaches from genomic to functional perspectives.
Lichens are complex symbiotic systems, in which coexistence occurs between several microalgal taxa and/or
lineages with a single fungus -mycobiont-, displaying different tolerance patterns to multiple kinds of abiotic
stress. Furthermore, certain communities of non-photosynthetic bacteria and yeasts are starting to be
As lichenologists, phycologists, and anyone else interested in improving our understanding diversity in the lichenised green algal genus Trebouxia, you are very welcome to join our first Workshop. This meeting is dedicated to discussing and clarifying molecular phylogenetic and morphological approaches to better understand and delimit the diversity of this important lichen photobiont genus.
The workshop will be held in the city of Trieste, NE...
