“Tree with beautiful Lichens” was featured in Fungilicious, November 4, 2012
Lichens are composite organisms consisting of a symbiotic relationship between a fungus and a photosynthetic partner , usually either a green alga. The morphology, physiology and biochemistry of lichens are very different from those of the isolated fungus and alga in culture. Lichens occur in some of the most extreme environments on Earth.
