Media reviews

"This updated and much expanded identification guide accomplishes a feat no one else has dared attempt. It is extremely useful for non-professionals and professionals alike."
– Richard Harris, New York Botanical Garden

"Brodo is responsible for the renewal of North American lichenology. In this new volume, he updates the keys to North American lichens to accommodate rapid changes in lichen systematics and taxonomy in the beginning of the 21st century. Using these new keys with Lichens of North America, individuals, study groups and classes can identify many species in any region of North America."
– Kerry Knudsen, University of California, Riverside
