Crustose lichens tend to be replaced by foliose lichens, such as the rock tripe Umbilicaria dilenii, and even mosses, and soon the underlying organic substrate gets thicker and thicker.
The growth of foliose lichens is comparable with that of fruticose lichens and furthermore, they both respond very clearly to changes in environmental humidity.
Since identifying tropical lichen species is time consuming, and in the case of San Jose, unreliable for the lack of adequate taxonomic studies (Umana & Sipman 2002), we decided to include only the overall coverage of foliose lichens, which is an easy and reliable method for bio-monitoring air pollution (Monge-Najera et al.
pyrifera, the foliose brown alga Egregia laevigata, and the foliose green alga Ulva lobata did not induce larval settlement of H.
He estimates that well over 2000 species may exist, but he is only able to make generalizations for the species of foliose and fruticose macrolichens that have been studied.
Adult Holopneustes purpurascens (Temnopleuridae: Echinodermata) at this site are principally found on laminae of the kelp Ecklonia radiata (Laminariales: Phaeophyta) and in the fronds of the red foliose alga Delisea pulchra (Bonnemaisonales: Rhodophyta).
Foliose types are also common, such as Parmelia, Physcia, Cetraria, and Xanthoria.
This site was chosen by Lubchenco and Menge as potentially the most exposed stretch of shoreline, and was characterized by a high percent cover of Mytilus edulis (blue mussels) all the way down into the subtidal, some foliose red algae, and a canopy of the kelp Alaria esculenta during summer (B.
8 m level; this included the lower margin of the mussel bed and the zone below, which was characterized by a thin, broken cover of foliose algae, and in certain years at some sites, dense patches of mussel recruits.
Thus, evaluation must depend heavily on foliose and fruticose groups (macrolichens) for which recent taxonomic treatments have become available, in particular for the genera Anzia (Yoshimura, 1995), Baeomyces s.
Only slightly swollen, foliose rhizomes in combination with long, filiform roots observed in most Burmanniaceae (Apteria, Burmannia, Cymbocarpa, Dictyostega, Gymnosiphon, Hexapterella, Marthella, Miersiella).
In southern California, these include the following features: (1) a floating canopy (Macrocystis), (2) an erect understory in which the fronds are supported by stipes (Pterygophora californica and Eisenia aborea), (3) a prostrate canopy lying on the substratum (Laminaria farlowii), (4) a turf composed of many species of foliose and articulated coralline algae, and (5) a pavement of encrusting algae.
The sites were within 10 m of each other and all of them had a dense canopy of surf-grass covering a mosaic of encrusting organisms, foliose algae, and bare rock surfaces.
rubra fishers over this 30-y period is that many formerly productive areas of reef, typified by foliose algae (seaweed) and associated complex communities of fish and invertebrates including abalone, have undergone a transition to "barrens.
