Transplants and seedlings of Pinus banksiana and Picea glauca were grown in acid sandy soil in the greenhouse and mulched with either Cladonia rangiferina or Cladonia alpestris, both commonly known as reindeer-moss. After 15 weeks 32P as NaH2PO4 ยท H2O was added to pots containing transplants. Transplants and seedlings were harvested after 17 weeks and dry weight, nutrient content, and 32P content of the transplants were determined. Both lichens significantly reduced growth and 32P accumulation. Forest Sci. 25:256-260.
