The New Forest heathland lichen survey 2011 to 2015 (JP020)

The New Forest is well known for its internationally important lichen assemblages in old growth pasture woodland. There is evidence to suggest that the heathlands also have an internationally important diverse lichen community, but little published survey evidence exists.Between 2011 and 2015, field surveys covering 100 1km squares across the New Forest were undertaken.

Natural England, Forestry Commission England and the National Trust commissioned this assessment and survey to produce a report to provide evidence and information about the richness, diversity and relative importance of the heathlands of the New Forest for lichens. The findings will be used to inform management of the site.
