Neitlich, Peter; Hasselback, Linda; Szewczak, Susan; Rogers, Paul. 1999. FHM lichen community results from Wyoming, 1997: a preliminary summary. A report to the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Forest Health Monitoring Program. White Mountain Research Station, Bishop, CA. 27 p.

The Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) program seeks to assess the condition and trend of the forests of the United States (Riiters et al. 1992; NAPAP 1993). FHM is linked with the national sampling grid established by the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) of the Environmental Protection Agency. Epiphytic lichen communities were included in FHM because they help to answer several key assessment questions. These questions concern the contamination of natural resources, biodiversity, forest health, and sustainability of timber production.

Keywords: Forest Health Monitoring (FHM), epiphytic lichen communities, Wyoming
