2 Pollution IndicatorsThe presence or absence of particular organisms can indicate whether the water is polluted or not.These are called Indicator Species
3 Air Pollution Indicators LichensDifferent types of lichen have different sensitivities to sulphur dioxide gas.3 main types – crusty, leafy and shrubbyIndicator species presentAppearance of lichenSO2 concentrationCrusty lichens onlyHighCrusty and leafyMediumShrubbylow
4 Air Pollution MapLook at the air pollution map, and explain the distribution of the different types of lichen.
5 Lichen Lichen + Green algae not found : SO2 conc. >170 mg/m3 Only green algae :max. 170 mg/m3close formations of lichen on the trunk of the tree, even in the cracks :mg/m3
6 Lichen leaf shaped lobe plates formed by leafy lichen : 60-70 mg/m3 lichen growing as a little bush or hanging like a beard :40-50 mg/m3
7 LichenLichen are particularly good indicators of gas pollution in the airAlmost all lichen are sensitive to air pollutions.Such as SO2, F2, O3, pH or even metal ion
8 What physiological properties make lichens useful indicators of air quality? Range of air pollution sensitivities across species. Lichens exhibit a range of sensitivities to S- & N compounds in acid rain, sulfur dioxide, ammonia, and fluoride. Changes in distribution or populations of the most sensitive lichens provide an early warning that air pollution is beginning to adversely affect the ecosystem. The mix of species and abundances at any one site can be used to position the site along an air quality gradient.High surface area and no roots. Lichens on trees and shrubs obtain nutrients from the air, precipitation, and substrate run-off. Tissue levels of many pollutants are correlated with ambient atmospheric levels.Readily absorb water and lack specialized barriers to prevent vapor loss. Daily cycles of wetting and drying produce a dynamic equilibrium between concentration and leaching of pollutants. As pollution concentrations change, so do concentrations in lichens. Mobile elements: S, N, K, Ca, Mg, Na. – can change significantly over a few months. Less mobile elements: Pb, Cd, Ni—change more slowly.Lichens concentrate many pollutants and can therefore be used to indicate many pollutants, not just the ones to which they are sensitive
9 What kinds of data are collected? Lichen communities and floristicsTissue analysesTransplantsLaboratory
10 What are lichens?British soldiersButton lichenLung lichenLichens are symbiotic organisms consisting of a fungus and an alga and/or a cyanobacterium.
11 Hell’s Canyon National Recreation Area Tongass National Forest, Sitka, AlaskaNitrogen concentrations in lichen tissue and abundance of the nitrogen-loving lichen, Xanthoria, were highest at sites closest to the Snake River.
12 Tongass National Forest, Sitka, Alaska Lichens were absent from alder <0 .25 mi from the pulp mill, an SO2 source.Typical cover of lichens onalder in the Sitka area
13 Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, Skagway, Alaska Mean concentrations of Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb, Ni, P, K, S, Zn in the lichen, Hypogymnia enteromorpha, were higher in Klondike Gold Rush NHP samples than Tongass National Forest samples.Mean concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb, Ni, S, Zn in all three lichen species collected at Dewey, close to the ship docks, were higher than provisional PNW background thresholds. (Here, H. enteromorpha). Cruise ships and previous mine ore transport were likely sources of these pollutants.PbSZn
