Massey Herbarium (Virginia Tech) (VPI)

The small lichen collection at Virginia Tech consists mostly of Virginia collections (96%). The great majority of these are voucher specimens collected for air quality monitoring studies on national forest lands and donated by the George Washington-Jefferson National Forest. These were determined by James Lawrey, Larry St. Clair, and Jonathan Dey. A legacy collection from the Bull Run Mountains collected by H.A. Allard from 1937 to 1939 consists of 65 specimens. Physiographically, most collections are from montane regions, less than 10% from the Piedmont, and the Coastal Plain is essentially unrepresented. Most specimens are of the foliose or fruticose type, with only a few crustose or sub-crustose. The lichen collection is growing slowing with new accessions coming from diverse areas and habitats.
