    I'm sorry to hear that Lobaria pulmonaria is so rare in England. In BC, it is plentiful in areas where the air is clean and is apparently a great source of nitrogen. Here is an article by Terry Taylor, a very well-respected naturalist in British Columbia.

    Being National Trust members, we read everything that comes through and this was amongst the many that came through today. I was going to post it myself until I saw @togata57 beat me to it. But I am very pleased it has been posted to highlight the ever increasing problem of habitat loss. The UK is a small country and nature is suffering from an ever expanding population that brings with it increasing pollution.
