Lab-Field-Office - Part 3

by Ed Tripp, University of Nottingham

Not all goes as planned.

As I discussed in my last post, by June I had started to collect lichen samples in order to investigate their recovery in heathlands. This process is simple. You go to a heathland site with some pots, scissors and gloves. After eventually finding a patch of lichen, you carefully cut off a small sample and put it in a pot to take back to the lab.
