Synopsis top ↑

This volume features 42 contributions on the occasion of the 65th birthday of G. Benno Feige in 2002. The authors of this volume come from 19 countries, which shows its international relevance. The articles are distributed to four sections (chemicals in lichens, new species and phylogeny, ecophysiology and morphology, distribution and ecology).

This contribution, in honour of Benno Feige's 65th birthday, includes 42 articles by 73 friends and colleagues from 19 countries. The papers are wide-ranging, as is appropriate for Benno's interests, and grouped into four sections: Chemicals in lichens (five papers), New species and phylogeny (16), Ecophysiology and morphology (8), and Distribution and ecology (13). While I am sure that Benno will appreciate the warmth of feeling evidenced by this response, the resultant papers have necessarily had to be short.

The papers of systematic interest include ones on a wide range of lichens and lichenicolous fungi: Biatora, Caloplaca, Caprettia, Cercidospora, Cladonia (C. cervicornis group), Coccotrema, Cryptothecia, Dermatocarpon, Dimeleana, Diploschistes (in Australia), Gyalidea (Solorinella considered a synonym), Lecidea, Lempholemma, Lepraria, Melanaria, Ocellularia, Peltigera (Nostoc's), Phyllopsora, Placopsis, Stromatopogon, Sulcaria, Thamnochrolechia, and Varicellaria. There is also a paper on a variety of cercosporoid hyphomycetes, including several new species.

The scientific and editorial standards are high, and the quality of reproduction of the many half-tone photographs is superb. However, while there is therefore something to interest a wide spectrum of lichenologists, most of the papers are ones which could easily have found places in regular journals. Sadly, to have papers in such volumes causes problems of accessibility as so few universities now subscribe to such series, and the costs are high for individuals. I therefore find the trend towards more and more such volumes a worrying one for the long-term access to the important data they include.
