LINDBERGIA – A journal opposing the tracheophytocentric conception of the world! Our job is to reveal the biological complexity of bryophytes and lichens.

LINDBERGIA is a journal issued by the Nordic Bryological Society and the Dutch Bryological and Lichenological Society. Bryologists and lichenologists from all countries are invited to publish original research from any field of bryology and lichenology. All manuscripts are reviewed.

LINDBERGIA appears with 1 volume annually. LINDBERGIA is produced at the Oikos Editorial Office in cooperation with the journals Oikos, J. Avian Biol., Ecography, Nordic Journal of Botany, Web Ecology and the monograph series Ecological Bulletins.
