Flora of New Zealand Lichens, Revised Second Edition, Volumes 1 and 2: Including lichen-forming and lichenicolous fungi
Flora of New Zealand Lichens, Revised Second Edition is an updated and definitive guide to the country’s rich and diverse lichen flora. This revised identification manual comprises two volumes and supersedes the version published in 1985 and includes for the first time a treatment of lichenicolous fungi, specialist fungal parasites that have co-evolved with lichens. Keys to genera cover foliose, squamulose, fruticose, filamentous, placodioid, leprose, crustose, foliicolous and lichenicolous life forms. All genera have descriptions, and commentaries provide up-to-date references. Species descriptions discuss thalline, apothecial and chemical characters, and a biogeographical grouping is given. An index to accepted taxa and to synonyms is provided plus a bibliography.
