Ingvar Kärnefelt 65 years – a birthday tribute[edit]

On the 11 August 2009, Prof. Ingvar Kärnefelt's 65th birthday was celebrated with an issue of The Lichenologist (41 (5): 453–559, 2009) which included contributions from all of his past and present PhD students in lichenology. The issue, edited by Ulf Arup at the Biological Museums, begins with a presentation of Ingvar's lichenological activities, paying particular attention to his preferred studies on the taxonomy of the families Parmeliaceae and Teloschistaceae. During the day, his students made presentations on their recent scientific work, and the celebrations continued through to the evening when all adjourned to spend an enjoyable time in a restaurant in central Lund.
