Mark record


Seventeen species of corticolous fructicose lichens have been identified in various conifer stands on the St-Lawrence north shore, some of the Mingan Islands, on Bonaventure Island, and in the Gaspé Peninsula. The genus Bryoria is represented by 9 species, the genus Alectoria by 1, the genus Usnea by 4, and the genus Ramalina by 4 species. The data on the distribution of the lichens in relation to the substratum are compared with similar information obtained previously on Anticosti Island.
