Macro Monday -Lichens

Weekly Macro Monday comes again with ….lichens!

Nature  makes the most beautiful art work  to which we all have access for free. The lichens are often ignored  and we only appreciate their beauty when we see them  either a microscope or when we see them in close-up photos. As I noticed from the photos I took they are different from each other and they are unique, I mean their patterns and shapes. Maybe I’m wrong!

A lichen is a composite organism that arises from algae  living among filaments of multiple fungi species in a mutualistic relationship.

  • Did you know the lichens cover nearly ten percent of the land’s surface?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

    • Lichen is not a algae. They are a separate group of organisms, resulting from the permanent coexistence of a fungus and a green or blue alga. It is totally different structurally from the two partners participating in the symbiosis. They can grow on trees, on rocks, on soil..
