India has made a significant contribution to lichenological research in the last six decades and at
present more than 100 researchers are engaged in lichenological studies throughout the country.

Much of the research is focused on taxonomy, floristic or revisionary studies of lichens while biodeterioration, biomonitoring, climate change bioprospection and biomedical application aspects of lichens are recently initiated.

Lichenological researches in India have a strong base of classical taxonomy and still follows traditional techniques. At the same time, it is on the verge of transformation into modern lichenology incorporating several advanced aspects. The workshop would provide basic as well as the latest information about identification, bioprospection, and conservation of lichens and the current development in Indian lichenology research.

Topics to be covered
  • Identification, classification, and nomenclature of lichens.
  • Identification of lichens by conventional methods and image processing techniques & digitalization of lichens.
  • Molecular taxonomy and phylogenetics of lichens.
  • Lichen chemistry and bioprospecting methodologies.
  • Conservation of lichens through field (In situ), symbiont culture and herbarium techniques (In vitro).
  • Lichenicolous and endolichenic fungi.
  • Lichen Bioinformatics, ecology and phytogeography.
