LICHALP, the information system on the lichens of the Alps

Nimis PL, Hafellner J, Roux C, Clerc P, Mayrhofer H, Martellos S, Bilovitz PO

This database allows to retrieve information on the lichens hitherto reported from the Alps. It organises data from the latest checklist of the Alps (Nimis et al. 2018), including a thesaurus of synonyms, distribution maps in 46 Operational Geographic Units, and a link to pictures, whenever present, from the archive of ITALIC (, the information system on the lichens of Italy (Martellos 2012). Additional data (growth-form, reproductive strategy, main photobionts) will be made searchable in the near future. The checklist will be updated at variable intervals of time.
