About this book

Language: German

Volume 6 of the Red List is the second part of Germany's updated nationwide Red List of fungi, this one covering lichens and myxomycetes. Both lists were last published in 1996 and are fundamentally revised and updated. The red list of lichens includes about 2,300 species. Although many lichens as symbioses of fungal and a photosynthetic algae endure the harshest environmental conditions, many species are endangered with extinction. Lichens clearly react to not directly recognizable environmental changes such as nitrogen and sulfur emissions.

The Red List of myxomycetes provides an excellent introduction to this unusual group of organisms. Its focus is on the overall species list with additional information on occurrence and distribution. The approximately 400 slime molds are an important, but usually invisible part of the material cycle as ecological counterparts to soil and litter-inhabiting bacteria. Only the fruiting bodies of these protists are macroscopically visible and often closely bound to specific microhabitats.

Summary in German:
Mit den Flechten und Myxomyzeten liegt der sechste Band der Roten Listen vor. Beide Listen waren zuletzt 1996 veröffentlicht worden und liegen grundlegend überarbeitet und aktualisiert vor. Die Rote Liste der Flechten umfasst ca. 2.300 Arten. Obwohl viele Flechten als Symbiosen aus einem formgebenden Pilz- und einem photosynthetisierenden Algenpartner härteste Umweltbedingungen ertragen, gibt es viele gefährdete bzw. ausgestorbene oder verschollene Arten. Flechten reagieren deutlich auf nicht unmittelbar erkennbare Umweltveränderungen wie Stickstoff- und Schwefelemissionen.

Die Rote Liste der Myxomyzeten bietet eine hervorragende Einführung in diese ungewöhnliche Organismengruppe. Ihr Schwerpunkt liegt auf der Gesamtartenliste mit Zusatzangaben zu Auftreten und Verbreitung. Die ca. 400 Schleimpilze sind als ökologische Gegenspieler boden- und streubewohnender Bakterien ein wichtiger, aber meist unsichtbarer Teil des Stoffkreislaufes. Nur die Fruchtkörper dieser Protisten sind makroskopisch sichtbar und oft eng an bestimmte Mikrohabitate gebunden.
