There are no equivalent tropical data that I know of, but Cao, Zhang, Zheng, Liu, and Zhou (2015) reported similar results in Antarctic lichens: species with a tufted thallus were better protected from external conditions than those with low lying thalli. And the classic studies by Kershaw and colleagues in Canada found that tall lichens have thermic and moisture gradients, from the top layer, which closely matches environmental fluctuations, to the lower levels, where conditions are milder and moisture is often high, and the taller the lichen, the larger the gradient (Kershaw, & Field, 1975; Kershaw, & Smith, 1978).
