Figure 2. Showing the preservation of lichen epiphytes on internal wooden building materials. 1. Historic low-status homes are sampled. 2. Major structural timbers yield bark along waney edges (arrow). 3. Round wood, and wattles from infill panels also yield bark (arrow). 4. Preserved epiphyte communities can be sampled from the bark surfaces. Timber frame and infill panel redrawn from Harris, R. (2006) Discovering Timber-framed Buildings.
