2019 Intermediate Lichens: The Genus Usnea

Usnea
Photo by K.M. Pyle
Instructor: Daphne Stone, Ph.D.
Dates: Wednesday-Friday, April 10-12, 2019
Location: SFI, Selma, OR
Tuition: $225

Lichens in the genus Usnea can be perplexing to identify due to variability within and similarity among species. Yet this lichen group, so prevalent in the Pacific Northwest, is well worth learning, especially because of its sensitivity to air quality. In this field course, we will delve into the genus Usnea using a new pamphlet written by instructor Daphne Stone. Classroom sessions will cover aspects of identification, then we’ll pursue Usnea in the field, traveling in the Illinois Valley and beyond to the Smith River area and the southern Oregon Coast Range. We’ll examine various species and learn to decipher what they tell us about local air quality and microhabitat conditions.
