Mike Sutcliffe’s British Lichens Website Adopted by the BLS

Mike Sutcliffe's British Lichens website has been adopted by the BLS, ensuring the continuity of this very useful website. Mike started this website in 2006 to try and make lichen identification easier for lichenologists at all levels by providing identified pictures to complement identification guides and keys. This produced a very useful site, much used by lichenologists. Sadly Mike fell ill in the early 2010s and could no longer update his site, but his wife Karen Hendrix, ensured his site stayed on line, where it has remained greatly valued by lichenologists. The BLS has now taken on administration of the site and will conserve and improve the site for the future.
