On the growth rate of the foliicolous lichen Strigula elegans
The diametral growth rate of the foliicolous lichen Strigula elegans (Fée) Müll. Arg., measured under natural conditions in the African tropical rainforest, has been established to amount to (0.7-)3-3-6(-8) mm annually. As compared to the diametral growth rate of lichens from temperate regions, which are reputed to be slow growers, there is no essential difference.
