    Description

    The primary objective of the Forest Health Monitoring indicator project is to develop models that use the composition of epiphytic lichen communities to detect and monitor air quality in forests. The designs of existing air quality monitoring networks in California do not provide adequate representation of rural areas to assess impacts to forests. This article is designed to provide readers with a brief synopsis of air quality monitoring in north-central California, an overview of current air quality issues in the area, and an introduction to plans for monitoring air quality in forests with lichens.
