ITALIC 5.0, the information system on italian lichens

P.L. Nimis & S. Martellos

ITALIC makes available information about the lichens known to occur in Italy. It is maintained and updated by the Research Unit of Prof. Pier Luigi Nimis, at the University of Trieste (NE Italy), Dept. of Life Sciences. The present version incorporates information from the latest Checklist of the Lichens of Italy by Nimis (2016).

The information can be queried through three interfaces (taxonomic, floristic, statistic). Other sections are devoted to the TSB Lichen Herbarium, the image archive, and to regional and national red lists. ITALIC also provides access to useful resources such as digital identification keys, developed in the framework of Project Dryades (http://dryades.units.it).
