Abstract: LIAS is a multi-authored information system for the collection and distribution of descriptive and other biodiversity data on lichens and selected groups of non-lichenized ascomycetes. LIAS is a long-term designed project with the final goal to comprise global data – estimates for the total number of lichen species worldwide range between 13.500 and 20.000. As GSD for Lichens LIAS is delivering combined data from LIAS light at http://liaslight.lias.net and LIAS names at http://liasnames.lias.net.
