Lichens of Ireland and Great Britain : An Illustrated Guide to Over 300 Species Paperback
by Paul Whelan
Ireland's rich lichen biodiversity is illuminated by this comprehensive guide, now updated to include over 50 new species, including Ireland's four Bryoria species.
There is also a new section on lichen microscopy methods, a topic few introductory texts cover.
The species descriptions emphasise essential features, substrate, habitat type and distribution maps, and are illustrated with accurate line drawings. Other topics include Ireland's lichen ecology, lichen anatomy, spot tests, achieving better contrast and resolution with your microscope, sectioning lichens, using stains to enhance visualisation of structures, and many other identification tricks and techniques.
