Lichens are small but beautiful – the grey beards on trees, the red-tipped pixy cups on old stumps, the rings of concentric pinprick dots on stone – so many shapes and colours. This project aims to consolidate information about the 400 or so species known in the Forest of Dean and to identify key areas of importance for this group. Lichens may easily be overlooked during other conservation work and part of the objective will be to ensure that key areas for lichens are incorporated into the ecological network and that their conservation requirements are identified. But above all, the objective is to make everyone involved in the Foresters' Forest aware of the loveliness of lichens and be inspired by them.
