    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).   The book is a very manageable length-a little over pages-and explains what a lichen is (a combination of two organisms: a fungus and a photosynthesizing partner, usually an algae), and other topics such as lichen evolution, the ecological role of lichens, lichens in forests, lichens in extreme environments, and biomonitoring/5(18).

    The Lichens of the Pacific Northwest Image Collection contains photos as a companion to the book by Bruce McCune, Microlichens of the Pacific Northwest ( Two volumes. Wild Blueberry Media, Corvallis).Photos were taken by Bruce McCune, unless otherwise indicated. The California Lichen Society "The Lichen Flora of the Greater Sonoran Desert Region", is out. It includes southern California. the photos in the CALS mini guide to some Southern California Lichens were taken especially for this book at over 25 Southern California locations. Photography by Richard Doell, text by Janet Doell.

The authors meet this objective. For more detailed plant identification, a technical botanical guide (Michigan Flora by Ed Voss) probably should be used instead of Forest Plants of Central Ontario. I recommend Forest Plants of Central Ontario as an interesting, non-technical guide for identifying major plant species of the region/5(14).

The beauty and importance of lichens have long been overlooked, despite their abundance and diversity in most parts of North America and elsewhere in the world. This stunning book--the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American continent--fills the 5/5(1).
