Lichens of Hoxie Gorge


This site is a compilation of the 46 species discovered during a study conducted in the summer of 2012 by Ethan Childs and Nathan Francisco. Specimens were collected at SUNY Cortland’s Hoxie Gorge Nature Preserve in the secondary succession and climax forest areas for ecological comparison. This site is meant to be a photographic key for educational purposes. Most of the identifications for this site were made using, The Macrolichens of New England, by J.W Hinds and P.L Hinds.
