Peabody Park Biological Survey

Lichens

This page is part of a biological survey of Peabody Park at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Initials of determiners and locations of grid sections are explained on the references page.

Many species of lichens can be found in Peabody Park, but very few have been specifically identified. Study of this group would make an excellent research project for an advanced student.
