Abstract:
Jammu & Kashmir is a Himalayan state of India which exhibits large altitudinal variation and thus houses good lichen diversity in it. Rajouri is one of the border districts of state, situated in the lap of Pir Panjal mountain range and was not well explored in the point of view of lichen diversity. Thus the present study was conducted to explore the lichen diversity from this remote district. The study revealed addition of 12 new records of lichen species for the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The reported species belongs to 11 genera of nine families.
