Rare lichen unique to Florida discovered in museum collections, may be extinct

Scientists have found a new species of fleshy verdigris lichen, thanks to DNA analysis of museum specimens.

Now the hunt is on to find it in the wild — if it still exists.

Investors who bet on tropical forest conservation and reforestation to solve global warming by storing carbon in wood face huge uncertainties because the science behind predicting carbon stocks is still shaky. Even the best Earth Systems Models fail to predict how carbon stored by tropical forests varies from place to place.
