RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dries Van den BroeckMy main research in the Garden focuses on the ecology of lichens, in particular the use of lichens as bio indicators of environmental disturbances like air pollution, climate change and forest management. Until now all studies have been conducted in Belgium. Recently I started to study the corticolous and foliicolous lichens and the lichenicolous fungi of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Samples were collected through three extensive field studies between 2009 and 2012. Their potential as bio indicators will be examinated.

Besides this several floristic studies are performed every year to improve the lichen checklist of Belgium and Luxembourg, the floristic database and the atlas of distribution maps (http://www.lichenology.info).
