The main secondary metabolites of lichens are unique aromatic and aliphatic compounds, i.e., lichen compounds. Most known lichen compounds are products of the acetate–malonate biosynthetic pathway. Lichen compounds are known to possess broad spectra of biological activity such as antioxidant, antibacterial, and cytotoxic [1, 2].

The goal of the research was to determine by HPLC the contents of phenolic metabolites in Cladonia lichens growing under the contrasting climatic conditions of Yakutia and Belarus.

The study included 52 herbarium specimens belonging to 15 species of Cladonialichens collected in Yakutia and preserved in the herbarium of the Institute of Biological Problems of the Cryolithozone, SB, RAS (SASY) and in Belarus and preserved in the herbarium of V. F. Kuprevich Institute of Experimental Botany, NASB (MSK). Herbarium specimens of lichens were designated for storage in 1956–2016. According to prior investigations, the storage time of lichens under herbarium...
