Lichens on serpentine and amphibolite on the plateau of Mt. Albert, Gaspesie, Quebec

Journal Article

At Mount Albert, many taxa are found exclusively on either serpentine or amphibolite contiguous formations, and are exclusively more noticeable within saxicolous lichens. There are more infrequent taxa on serpentine than on amphibolite. The saxicolous, muscicolous, and terricolous lichen flora and the lichenicolous fungi of the plateau include 202 taxa, most of which have an arctic affinity. Of these taxa, 36 are recorded for the first time in Quebec, 16 in Canada and 11 in North America. -from English summary
