Ash and its host species. A look at three groups that may be affected by Ash dieback

As a response to the outbreak of Ash dieback last autumn, the British Lichen Society undertook an analysis of its database, which contains approximately 1.2 million species records. This analysis, based on records where the host tree is given, found that 536 lichens have been recorded from Ash Fraxinus excelsior, representing 27.5% of the British resource (Simkin 2012).
