Epiphytic Macrolichens of Arizona: Key to the common genera and species

by F. Bungartz, R. Rosentreter and T. H. Nash III
ASU 2002

This guide deals with the more common genera and species of epiphytic macrolichens known from Arizona and to some extend throughout the arid Southwest. It is intended as a quick field reference and not a comprehensive guide to the entire flora. 

The guide is a result from several training sessions conducted for the USDA Forest Service Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program in Tucson, Arizona over the past two years.
