Abstract
Doutoramento em Biologia e Ecologia das Alterações Globais Growing evidence shows us that climate has changed in the recent decades, and the scenario for the future will most likely worsen. A set of climate variables is being developed to monitor climate change, but this is not enough to keep track its effects on ecosystems. It’s imperative to understand and quantify how ecosystems functioning are affected by and respond to these changes, and ecological indicators based on biodiversity metrics are one of the tools to do this. The objective of this work was to develop a global lichen functional diversity integrated ecological indicator of the effects of climate c...
