Tropical Lichens: Their Systematics, Conservation, and Ecology by D. J. Galloway

Tropical lichens are not only of interest in themselves, but are of importance in the study of the ecosystems of which they are a part. Presented for the first time in book form, this comprehensive synthesis of information points to areas for further research, and summarizes discussions on the systematic, ecological, and biogeographical aspects of tropical lichens. Problems of lichen conservation are also included. Scientists concerned with environmental investigation, and in particular, with climactic change, will find this new work increasingly relevant.
