July meeting- Malcolm Hodges: Introduction to Lichens

July 1, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

I will present an overview of what makes up a lichen, how we sort out their forms, where they live, and some of the things that make lichens special. Lichen diversity and conservation will also be themes we’ll explore.

Malcolm Hodges grew up in coastal Mississippi, and has a BA in Biology from Rice University and a Masters in Zoology from Mississippi State. He is recently retired from The Nature Conservancy in Georgia where he worked as an ecologist and land manager. His interests are conservation management of threatened biota in the Southeast US; lichen systematics, distribution and conservation in the Southeast; and ornithology. He lives on a farm in Riverdale, Georgia, with his partner, Keith Poole.
