Volunteers Rick and Jean Seavey published a significant component of their ongoing Lichen Inventory Project in The Lichenologist. The paper, titled “New additions to the lichen genus Enterographa (Roccellaceae) from Everglades National Park including an updated world key,” describes four species that were previously unknown to science. These new species include E. bradleyana commemorating Audubon warden Guy Bradley and E. murrayana, named for Mrs. Murray, an early settler in the Florida Bay area and namesake of Murray Key. To date, the Lichen Inventory Project has resulted in documentation of more than 500 species of lichen within Everglades National Park, many of which were new to North America and ten that were previously undescribed.
