Dr. William Purvis (left) & Dr. Gregory Insarov (right) The method is adapted from Insarov (2002) to meet the additional requirements of an inter-city comparative study to record and monitor lichen diversity and distribution in Moscow and London over a twenty-five year period.

Changes in air pollution and climate over the period will also be documented to identify spatial and temporal trends.
