Investigating the effect of sulphur dioxide on fruticose lichens in Luxembourg
My research focused on searching whether sulphur dioxide from factory and road emissions affect fruticose lichens species in Luxembourg. By doing a belt transect with 100 meter intervals for 1 kilometer as well as measuring abiotic factors and height and diameter, I then did a statistical test to confirmy my hypothesis that pollution has an effect on fruticose lichen species. Statistical tests suggested that there is a significant decrease in fruticose lichens closer to polluted areas.
