The epiphytic lichen vegetation of a heavily grazed Mediterranean mixed evergreen sclerophyllous and deciduous shrubland was studied. Differences in the epiphytic lichen vegetation seem to be largely determined by changes in the architecture of the bushes as well as by the differences in the space between them. In some cases, despite grazing pressure, the epiphytic lichen vegetation does not change dramatically.
