Cladonia Systematics: What can we infer from morphology and molecules?
Participants will spend an afternoon exploring an emerging area of lichen systematics that involves the integration of molecular and morphological data to elucidate taxonomic relationships at the species-level. The workshop will focus on examples from the genus Cladonia as a model for this type of unified approach. The main objective is to facilitate an understanding of the morphological identity of members of Cladonia and to provide insight into processes involved in the evolutionary patterns observed with morphological, chemical and molecular characters. It will include lecture and discussion of molecular and morphological methods as well as hands on examination of specimens in the genus, Cladonia.
