What is a lichen?
Lichens are not a single plant.
A lichen is a complex group of plants depending on a close association between a FUNGUS and ALGAE – a symbiotic relationship.
A lichen consists of an upper part of interwoven fibres related to the fungus and a layer of more loosely fibrous structures related to the fungus that surrounds the algae.
The algae can carry out photosynthesis and feed the fungi. The fibrous structures that make up the fungi adds support to the algae and keeps the algae from drying out.
