<p>This talk was presented on 2/21/2014 at the UNC Biology Dept. "Lunch Bunch". It describes preliminary results from research on functional trait variation of epiphytic macrolichens in tree canopies. Specifically, I examine whether traits such as chlorophyll content or water-holding capacity vary consistently with light or temperature. </p>
