    Crustose lichens form a crust that strongly adheres to the substrate (soil, rock, tree bark, etc.), making separation from the substrate impossible without destruction. The basic structure of crustose lichens consists of a cortex layer, an algal layer, and a medulla. The upper cortex layer is differentiated and is usually pigmented. The algal layer lies beneath the cortex. Online shopping for Mosses & Lichens from a great selection at Books Store. Online shopping for Mosses & Lichens from a great selection at Books Store.

      About this book. This book provides an invaluable guide to identifying the British and Irish species both for the amateur naturalist just starting to study lichens, and the more advanced lichenologist and it offers the environmentalist and ecologist a concise work 5/5(1). The vanishing lichens;: Their history, biology, and importance by D. H. S Richardson and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at

    Noted textile designer and lichen expert explains how to create and use dyes derived from lichens. Text covers history of the use of lichen pigments, safe dyeing methods, ecologically sound dyeing, and use of mordants, lichen identification, and more. Text also offers a fascinating history of Asian and European lichen pigments, Scottish, Irish, and Scandinavian domestic lichen dyes, and others. Lichens are interesting organisms. They are diverse, adaptable, functional, and little understood. They play an important role in our natural ecosystems and can let us know when those ecosystems are in trouble. Lichens are beautiful, especially when you view a lichen-drenched Douglas-fir or a colorful crust-covered cliff, and up close when viewed under a hand-lens or microscope.

[5] A macrolichen is a lichen that is either bush-like or leafy; all other lichens are termed microlichens. [1] Here, "macro" and "micro" do not refer to size, but to the growth form. [1].

Most kinds of plants have a double portion of chromosomes in their cells (diploid, i.e. each chromosome exists with a partner that contains the same genetic information) whilst mosses have only a single set of chromosomes (haploid, i.e.

each chromosome exists in a unique copy within the cell). The Lichens covers the structure and development, physiology of the intact thallus, environmental response and effects, secondary metabolic products, and symbiont interactions of lichens.

Walter K. Dodds, Matt R. Whiles, in Freshwater Ecology (Second Edition), Aquatic Lichens. Lichens (a symbiotic partnership between a fungus and an alga) are never found in groundwaters, and only rarely in the benthic zone of lakes and rivers.

However, fairly dense growths of the lichen Dermatocarpon fluviatile can be found in benthic habitats of streams and some lakes. Lichens produce an unique variety of extra cellular secondary metabolites known as lichen substances. These compounds exist within the thalli either in an amorphous form or as crystals.

The quantities of these lichen substances were up to 30% of the dry weight of the lichen thalli in certain lichen species. About this book. Explores the unusual biology, amazing diversity and ecological importance of lichens and explains how understanding lichen biodiversity may lead to technological developments in medicine, metal prospecting and pollution control.

Lichens are prominent examples of symbiotic organisms, combining fungi and algae and/or cyanobacteria in an intimate biological union. This volume provides an up-to-date account of these fascinating organisms, beginning with anatomical, morphological, and physiological aspects.

It emphasizes the ecophysiology of lichens and their role in carbon and nitrogen fixation, as well as in mineral /5(4). Lichens provide opportunities for study of close relationships between unrelated microorganisms. Lichens contribute to soil production by breaking down rock, and they are early colonizers in soilless environments such as lava flows.

The cyanobacteria in some lichens can fix nitrogen and act as a nitrogen source in some environments. Lichens are. "The book starts by looking at how lichens have been used throughout history in medicines, dyes, food and perfumes. It then goes on to describe what lichens are, and how they grow and reproduce.

A detailed survey is then given of the range of habitats in which lichens can be found: on trees, rocks, heaths and moors, chalk and limestone. "[An] amazing book, Lichens of North America, is a gift, a tribute to the beauty, grace, oddity, and dignity of some of the planet’s most obvious yet overlooked organisms.
