About this book

This new fold-out chart covers 62 common species of lichen found on rocky sea shores from the low tide mark up to the limit of sea spray.

The seashore is a very difficult environment for most organisms, as they may be submerged by the tide for part of the day or soaked in spray which dries out to leave a coasting of salt. Lichens are one of the few organisms that are able to survive under these conditions.
