Costa Rica 2012 OTS Workshop
Team: Lichenologists and lichen fans mostly from the United States
I had a great time learning about lichens during the OTS specialty course: Tropical Lichens & Forest Health, led by Robert Lücking, Jim Lawrey and local lichenologist Jose Luis Chaves. We went to multiple areas, but my favorite was probably Cerro de la Muerte, where MANY species of Cora were co-occuring. A brochure for a tour we designed can be downloaded here and a guide to premontane lichens can be found here!
