Lichen Week Lunchtime Lecture: Lichen Ecology with Natalia Koch, PhD

Come learn about the fascinating world of lichens in the BRIT Lecture mini series, Lichen Week! Friday’s hybrid lecture will be presented by Dr. Natalia Koch and is titled “Lichen functional traits as ecological indicators”. From the presentor:
My work is focused on community ecology, functional traits, and biomonitoring with emphasis on lichens. I am mostly interested in understanding the relationships of different lichen species and traits with environmental changes, and how this can be used to monitor those changes. I have a PhD in Ecology and in my current postdoctoral research I am working on patterns of ecophysiological functional traits of the lichen symbioses (from both the fungi and the algae) related to natural and human-caused environmental changes; and in an air pollution monitoring project using lichens across Minnesota.

*UPDATE* Due to unforeseen circumstances the presenter will no longer be able to attend in person. We will host the lecture virtually with a viewing available in the Commons of the BRIT building. Please join us virtually at the following link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83467014750 . Thanks!
