Abundant in every province and territory, this lichen is easily recognized because of the appearance of cauliflower-like. To better understand how urban parks can be managed to maximize lichen biodiversity, we examined trees in seven parks throughout the City of Guelph in southern Ontario.

We measured bark characteristics and lichen communities on four common tree species that have a wide range of pH: Acer platanoides L., Acer × freemanii E.

Steven Newmaster, authored the lichen chapter in the book. The Arboretum was used for the chapter as an example of what is likely to be found in other woodlots in southern Ontario. Since first documented by Shaw inthe general understanding was that northern flying squirrels bred but once per year.

Recently, in southern Ontario, Canada, polyestrous behaviour (two litters per year) has been documented for the first time. This observation has since been confirmed by a second research team in New Brunswick, Canada. Next to lichens, mosses are probably the most environmentally sensitive group of living things and many species no longer thrive within our urban or industrial atmosphere.
