Lichens are a unique form of plant life, the product of a symbiotic association between an alga and a fungus.

This stunning book - the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American continent - fills the gap, presenting superb colour photographs, descriptions, distribution maps, and keys for identifying the most common, conspicuous, or ecologically significant species.

"An illustrated glossary of terms that are used to describe mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. Written in informal prose, it's intended to be an everyday reference for not only bryology and botany students, but also gardeners and anybody who's interested in plants. The second edition has half again as many pages (over 330) and illustrations (nearly 1400) as the first edition did, and two-thirds of those illustrations are new. Over 530 species of bryophytes are illustrated. Also, an appendix explains how to photograph bryophytes without a camera." --NHBS Environment Bookstore.
