Question:
Hi!

I am currently doing a project on the relationship between the percentage of lichen coverage and the age of oak trees, however I am lacking in scientific knowledge to complete my research.

Are there any sites linked to my study to help me?


No, lichens rarely are agents of death of trees. Most likely, there are other problems contributing to the decline of your trees. The following should be helpful:
