Résumé / Abstract
Cornell University's 40-ha McLean Bogs Preserve in Tompkins County, New York, USA, was given to the University by Curtis G. Lloyd ca. 80 years ago. McLean's mycological richness is well known, based on a thorough biological survey published in 1926. Its calcareous lowlands are juxtaposed with acidic quaking bogs and steep upland forest, providing a wide variety of wetland habitats. Since lichens were not included in the 1926 report, we surveyed them at the Preserve in 2002. After finding 36 historical lichen vouchers in CUP and OS (collected 1944-1989), we searched each habitat type, prepared specimens of all macrolichens and some crustose species encountered, and compiled a specimen database that is available online at CUP. We recorded 66 primarily corticolous and lignicolous species, 51 new in 2002. This is the first extensive lichen list for any locality in the Finger Lakes Region of central New York, and includes brief notes on microhabitats, substrates, and identifying characteristics.
