Rock inhabiting lichens are important pioneer species in the aquatic-terrestial transition zone of lakeshore habitats. To investigate how substrate type, slope and aspect influenced lichen communities, we surveyed the rocky shores of glacial lakes within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW)of northern Minnesota.

Spickerman, Kaleigh; Maierhofer, Christopher; Weirich, Joseph; Wojan, Christopher (2012-04)The composition of communities shaped by niche-based assembly is expected to be more predictable than the composition of randomly assembled communities in otherwise similar environments (Chase 2007). The purpose of this ...
