Sponsor a species for CALSCC!

The California Lichen Society’s Conservation Committee (CALSCC) has a preliminary list of species it is interested in.  Further information must be gathered for these species prior to any formal action.  Committee members are working on many but there is more than we can handle.  If you would like to help, we have a number of species open for ‘sponsorship’.  Information needs include locations within California, as well as the complete distribution of the species… so if you are not in California yourself, you may still have a lot of fun sponsoring one of these species and it may be useful to providing conservation status for the species in your area.  Please contact me if you wish to sponsor a species, as I need to keep track of who is doing what.  The sponsorship form is attached as a MSWord2000 document.

As of our meeting in January, 2005, the following species are open for sponsorship and of high interest to us:
(please do not consider inclusion in this list to imply any conservation status – many may prove to be undercollected and common.  please also note that there are a number of species not included here because they are already sponsored.)
