Abstract: [Molecular studies on snow trapped soredia and soredia from transplants of Lobaria pulmonaria in the Jura Mountains, Switzerland. "Monitoring of soredia of L. pulmonaria transplanted to maple bark after two vegetation periods showed high variance in growth among forest stands, but no significant differences among different transplantation treatments. Hence, it is probably not dispersal limitation that hinders colonization in the old-forest lichen L. pulmonaria, but ecological constraints at the stand level that can result in establishment limitation."
