The Biology of Lichens (Contemporary Biology) by Hale, Mason and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at - The Biology of Lichens Contemporary Biology by Mason E Hale - AbeBooks. The book includes information about “true” fungi, fungus-like creatures (slime molds and water molds), and a group of “composite” organisms (lichens) that are more than just fungi. Particular attention is given to examples of fungi that might be found in the home and encountered in nature.

Lichens are found worldwide and occur in a variety of environmental conditions. A diverse group of organisms, they can colonize a wide range of surfaces and are frequently found on tree bark, exposed rock, and as a part of biological soil crust. Lichens have been used by humans as food and as sources of medicine and dye.   This book is a scholarly text on the biology of mushrooms, molds and lichens. I'm not quite sure who the target audience is supposed to be - the book is too technical for an introduction to the subject, but not enough detail is provided to make this an advanced text/5.

Others commenting on the first edition noted that it is a technical book. Lichens have a body called a thallus, an outer, tightly packed fungal layer called a cortex, and an inner, loosely packed fungal layer called a medulla (Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\)).

Lichens use hyphal bundles called rhizines to attach to the substrate. Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\): This cross-section of a lichen thallus shows its various components.

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. Lichens are bizarre organisms and no two are alike. Lichens are a complex life form that is a symbiotic partnership of two separate organisms, a fungus and an alga.

The dominant partner is the fungus, which gives the lichen the majority of its characteristics, from its thallus shape to its fruiting bodies. Lichen Biology book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers.
