The lichen-forming fungi in the Halifax Public Gardens, Nova Scotia

Anwar Tumur, David H.S. Richardson


Fifty-three lichens species belonging to 28 genera were recorded from the Halifax Public Gardens in Nova Scotia. A brief history of the gardens and of lichen recording in the city is presented, along with a commentary on the lichens found in this study. The results of this lichen survey are of particular interest as the lichen flora has not been previously documented and it provides a baseline for monitoring future changing patterns of pollution and climate. In addition, the Halifax Public Gardens are celebrating in 2017 the 150th anniversary of the opening of the gardens.
