Sarah Jovan

Sarah Jovan, PhD, is a Research Ecologist and Lichen Indicator Advisor for U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, Portland, OR. Absorbent and rootless, moss and lichen are regularly employed as indicators of air pollution in European cities, but environmental scientists in the United States are just starting to take advantage of this indicator. Jovan will share some of her work with us.
