'The publication of an account of Antarctic lichens is long overdue ! Lichens are the most abundant and diverse macro photoautotrophs in the region ! the authors of the new book have brought together complementary, and probably unique, expertise in Antarctic lichenology to produce a benchmark volume ! a major contribution both to lichenology and to Antarctic science ! lichenologists will want to own this volume as a taxonomic and biogeographical reference work' P. Crittenden, Antarctic Science ' ! undoubtedly a landmark in the development of our knowledge of Artarctic lichens. ! the authors carry out an excellent bibliographical review.' Mycotaxon ' ! a most welcome identification ! an absolute must for the polar lichenologist.' The Naturalist
