In forensic science, their use as trace evidence in linking people or objects with places, estimation of post-mortem interval from growths on human remains, ascertaining times of deposition, and investigating causes of poisonings.

In environmental investigations, assessments of air pollution using lichens, and of mould growth due to water damage in buildings.
