BLM OR-WA Lichen and Bryophyte Studies, Education and Conservation: The BLM is tasked with the conservation, protection, and preservation of threatened and endangered species. Bryophytes and lichens are an integral and important part of Pacific Northwest forests. While much is known about vascular plant ranges and habitats, less is known about bryophytes and lichens. Although some species are considered rare, often there is not enough information about their ranges to verify rarity. Biodiversity Research Collective (BRC) is a group of scientists, who are studying bryophytes and lichens in order to further knowledge about these species. These studies have included the study of lichens found on rare Garry oak habitats in WA, inventories of soil crusts in eastern WA and OR and surveys for calicioid lichens in old growth forests and riparian areas of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. These studies are critical to our understanding of species that are suspected of being endangered or rare because they provide documentation of range extensions and abundance.

The objective of this program is to compile and disseminate scientific information about lichens and bryophytes and their habitats; to produce assessments and educational materials; to facilitate education and training; lead field trips for State and Federal agencies and other public and private entities; perform lichen and bryophyte inventories; collaborate and work with Universities, State and Federal Agencies, Non-governmental organizations and the general public on lichenology and bryology.
