  • Introductory chapters, detailed descriptions, fantastic photos. 'Attempts to cover over 1,500 common, conspicuous, or otherwise important lichens from the Arctic to the Mexican border, from coast to coast.'
  • One of the most remarkable monographs on lichens ever to be produced. Large, very heavy hardback, in dust-jacket.
  • This stunning book—the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American continent, has superb color photographs, descriptions, distribution maps, and keys for identifying the most common, conspicuous, or ecologically significant species.
    The book focuses on 805 foliose, fruticose, and crustose lichens (the latter rarely included in popular guidebooks) and presents information on another 700 species in the keys or notes; special attention is given to species endemic to North America. A comprehensive introduction discusses the biology, structure, uses, and ecological significance of lichens and is illustrated with 90 additional color photos and many line drawings. English names are provided for most species, and the book also includes a glossary that explains technical terms.
