About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

This work is a concise introduction orientated to nature enthusiasts with an interest of discovering the beauty and features of the fascinating micro-world of lichens, fungus and mosses. All the species shown occur in Patagonia, which extends along the west and east slopes of the Andes Mountain Range. The most conspicuous species, whose size allows its identification in the field with the naked eye, are presented as well as some other small but abundant forms that are important for the ecosystem.

Relevant accounts about the morphology and biology of these organisms are included. The photographs of fungi, lichens and mosses published in this book have captured moments of discovery in this micro-world, hoping to encourage the reader to their own exploration of these simple and often unnoticed forms of life that are part of an overlooked universe.
