Description: The Boreal Felt Lichen is a globally rare species. It has been documented in Atlantic Canada, Sweden, and Norway, but it is currently believed to exist only in Canada. There are two disjunct populations: the boreal population (the island of Newfoundland) and the Atlantic population (Nova Scotia and New Brunswick). Most of the Atlantic population of the Boreal Felt Lichen has disappeared. It persists at only three of the 47 locations where it is known to have occurred in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. There are only 13 individuals at these three sites, all of them in Halifax County, Nova Scotia. Having experienced a dramatic decline of over 90% over the past 20 years, the Atlantic population is in imminent danger of disappearing from the Maritimes.Typical habitat for the Boreal Felt Lichen is northerly exposed forested slopes where cool and moist conditions prevail throughout most of the year. These mature forest sites are also rich in moisture-loving species such as sphagnum mosses and Cinnamon Fern. In well-lit forests, the Boreal Felt Lichen is found predominantly on tree trunks' whereas in more shaded habitats it is found mostly on branches.The most serious threats to the Boreal Felt Lichen in Nova Scotia are air pollution, acid rain, and deforestation.The Boreal Felt Lichen, Atlantic population, is protected under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). More information about SARA, including how it protects individual species, is available in the Species at Risk Act: A Guide.The Boreal Felt Lichen is listed as a vulnerable species under the Newfoundland and Labrador Endangered Species Act.
