The known lichen products include hundreds of compounds many of which are restricted to the lichens. This guide to lichen products has been completed at a moment of renewed research activity in all aspects of the chemistry, taxonomy, and physiology of these symbiotic organisms. Its aim is to summarize the vast and widely scattered literature on the nature and occurrence of lichen substances and to organize the information for the use of (1) botanists interested in the application of chemistry to problems of biology and taxonomy, (2) chemists looking for sources of substances peculiar to the lichens, and (3) medical researchers seeking biologically active products as potential medicinals.
