Title: Lichens of North America
Creator: Sharnoff, Sylvia; Sharnoff, Stephen
Abstract: This website grew out of the activities of Sylvia and Stephen Sharnoff, who did the photographic fieldwork for the book "Lichens of North America", by Irwin M.Brodo and the Sharnoffs, published in November, 2001 by Yale University Press. For a brief introduction to lichen biology and how lichens interact with the greater environment, you will find the section "Lichen Biology and the Environment". Information about lichens and wildlife, including invertebrates, can be found at "Lichens and Wildlife". For a description of how people have made use of lichens, including an extensive bibliographical database, click on "Lichens and People". Check out the "Useful Links" page for many useful connections to this project and to the world of lichens. [Information of the supplier, modified]
