Lichens are by definition symbiotic organisms, usually composed of a fungal partner, the mycobiont (Chapter 3), and one or more photosynthetic partners, the photobiont (Chapter 2), which is most often either a green alga or cyanobacterium.

    Understanding the physiological processes that lie behind stress injury, and how lichens tolerate environmental stress, is therefore of great importance in lichen biology.

Lichens are able to colonize places where there are extremes of humidity, temperature and light, and they often occur in places where few other macroscopic living things can survive. Lichens absorb water from the atmosphere, but unlike plants they have no means of keeping water within the lichen during dry spells.

Cramer Verlag. Lichens provide opportunities for study of close relationships between unrelated microorganisms. Lichens contribute to soil production by breaking down rock, and they are early colonizers in soilless environments such as lava flows.

The cyanobacteria in some lichens can fix nitrogen and act as a nitrogen source in some environments. Lichens are associations between fungi and cyanobacteria (formerly called blue-green algae). The cyanobacteria are the photosynthetic elements in the association, which is an example of mutualism (a living arrangement where both partners benefit).

The photosynthetic organisms provide nutrients for themselves and the fungus, while the fungus provides protection, water, and minerals for the.

Lichens. Lichens are fungi that live in a symbiotic association with an autotrophic green alga or cyanobacterium (the "photobiont") or - in some cases - both. The fungal partner (the "mycobiont") in most lichens (98% of them) is an ascomycete.

Zygomycetes make up the remainder. Book Title: Biology of Polar Bryophytes and Lichens Author: R. Longton Publisher: CUP Archive Release Date: Pages: ISBN: Available Language: English, Spanish, And French.
