[1]The letter contained Dr. Scheidegger’s ideas about the complex reproductive strategies of Erioderma, about the limited life span of its thalli, and about its life cycles being intimately tied to certain ecological stages in growth of coniferous trees within a more or less undistributed forest environment.
