Cryptograms include algae, lichens, bryophytes and fungi (Scott et al. ). In the strictest sense fungi, some algae and lichens are neither plants nor animals but rather are classified into several separate kingdoms. The book seemed an expensive investment for an amateur like myself, but, after reviewing other books on lichens at the library and in bookstores, I realized this book has no equal. Inevitably, I placed my order. When the book arrived, I was first surprised at how BIG it was. Hundreds of four color images jumped off the pages, each a work of s: Significance of cryptogams. In the sequence — lichens, bryophytes, algae, fungi — there is a rough general but paradoxical relationship: relatively decreasing taxonomic knowledge and decreasing numbers of taxonomic/ecological workers, but increasing species numbers, increasing technical difficulties of study, and increasing ecological.

  The stratospheric ozone layer, which protects the biosphere from biologically active (mostly harmful) ultraviolet-B (UV-B) solar radiation, thinned during the latter half of the 20th century. In this paper some of the effects of UV-B radiation on cryptogams (cyanobacteria, algae, lichens, mosses, liverworts, pteridophytes and fungi) are reviewed. Lichens are symbionts: Lichens are symbiotic association between algae and fungi. The term Symbiosis (introduced by De-Bary, a mycologist) is used to specify the association or interaction of organisms where both partners are mutually benefitted. Adams, N.M. & W.A.

What is Lichen? A lichen is not a single organism but a symbiosis among different organisms like fungus and a cyanobacterium or algae. Cyanobacteria are also referred to as blue-green algae despite the fact of being distinct from algae. The non-fungal part is known as photobiont that contains chlorophyll. Book Editor(s): George A.
