Parmeliaceae: Towards a worldwide checklist and a phylogenetic classification of the largest family of lichen-forming fungi

01/10/2012 - 01/11/2012

Chaophya Park Hotel,  Bangkok, Thailand

This meeting is a second in a series of two meetings devoted to this lichen family. The goals of this follow-up meeting from a very successful first meeting in Chicago (see http://www.lichenology.org/Publications/ILN/ILN43_1.pdf) are to further coordinate efforts to study the evolution and biodiversity of Parmeliaceae and disseminate accumulating knowledge, and use this as a model for similar studies in other families of lichenized fungi. The meeting takes place within the framework of the 7th IAL symposium in Thailand in January 2012.
