Artist's Description

Multi Mirrored image of Lichen growing on the back of a grave stone in Llandudno, Wales
Processing in PSP and PSE

In unpolluted churchyards, lichens often form mosaics of colour, especially on the stonework, adding to the character and interest of the site. They vary in form from simple, powdery scatterings and crusts to more elaborate leafy or even bushy structures.
•Churchyards are of supreme importance for lichen conservation, particularly where there are no natural outcrops of rock.
•Churchyards provide an excellent environment for the study of lichen biology and colonisation.
•Of the 1700 British species, over 300 have been found growing on churchyard stone in lowland England.
•Almost half the species are rare, having been noted in fewer than ten churchyards. Some seldom occur in any other habitat.
•Many churchyards are found to have well over 100 species.
