The aim of this work was to assess air quality by 1) determining the concentration of heavy metals in the thalli of Evernia prunastri, and 2) measuring the correlation between the IAP and heavy metal concentrations.
Evernia prunastri has been considered as a good bio-accumulator of metals (CERCASOV & al.
Standard methods have also been refined in the last decade for better determining the accumulation of various heavy metals on lichens, as in Evernia prunastri (Nimis et al.
and minor quantities of Evernia prunastri, Ramalina farinacea, and Ramalina leptocarpa.
Ramalina menziesii was the dominant lichen in the canopy, contributing 78% of the total lichen biomass or 2964 [+ or -] 615 g/tree; Usnea contributed 20% ([mean] = 767 [+ or -] 143 g/tree) and Evernia prunastri 2% ([mean] = 57 [+ or -] 11 g/tree).
For most of the species, except Evernia prunastri and Platismatia glauca, the cumulative n-hexane and diethyl ether extracts did not reach a quarter of the global extraction yields and the highest quantity of compounds was extracted with methanol.
