      Mushroom identification help. If you know what a mushroom looks like, but not know it's ID, you can use this list to identify it. The mushrooms are grouped by family, so closely related mushrooms are listed together. Click on the pictures to enlarge them. If you click on a caption, the details regarding that mushroom is shown.   “Lichens of North America” also contains photographs and descriptions of many of Florida’s macrolichens (Brodo et al. ). The aim of this book is to compliment these other resources and provide more field oriented keys to the macrolichen diversity. We hope to encourage the incorporation of lichens into field oriented ecological studies.

      Created in response to requests from longtime users, this addition to the acclaimed reference to North American lichens compiles updated and expanded keys for the identification of these fascinating organisms. An ideal laboratory resource, it covers over 2, species of lichens . The Consortium of North American Lichen Herbaria (CNALH) serves as a gateway to biodiversity data of lichenized fungi throughout North America. It provides access to an array of different resources: specimen records, field observations, dynamic and static checklists, images, interactive keys, and a taxonomic thesaurus.

      Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages ) and index. Summary Created in response to requests from longtime users, this addition to the acclaimed reference to North American lichens compiles updated and expanded keys for the identification of these fascinating organisms. The beauty and importance of lichens have long been overlooked, despite their abundance and diversity in most parts of North America and elsewhere in the world. This stunning book—the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American con Lichens are a unique form of plant life, the product of a symbiotic /5(10).

Part 2, the heart of the book, is a guide that offers identification keys to groups, genera, and species and their descriptions, with accompanying photographs and North American distribution by: This stunning book - the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American continent - fills the gap, presenting superb colour photographs, descriptions, distribution maps, and keys for identifying the most common, conspicuous, or ecologically significant species.

This stunning book – the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American continent – fills the gap, presenting superb color photographs, descriptions, distribution maps, and keys for identifying the most common, conspicuous, or ecologically significant species.

It was only recently that the first detailed identification guide with colour illustrations of North American lichens was published (Brodo et al. ), with more regional illustrated guides. It will be impossible to short change or ignore lichens any longer Considering the breadth and depth of coverage, high production values and sheer volume, the list price of $ for Lichens of North America isa steal.

This book is destined to become a classic among North American natural history literature. About this book. Created in response to requests from longtime users, this companion to the acclaimed reference to North American lichens compiles updated and expanded keys for the identification of these fascinating organisms.

An ideal laboratory resource, it covers over 2, species of lichens indigenous to the continent. The National Geographic Pocket Guide to Trees and Shrubs of North America is a bit more user-friendly for the budding botanist.

That said, this book is truly pocket-sized and therefore leaves a lot of trees and shrubs out. Flowers. Flower identification is a great place to get started with botany.

The portions that cover liverworts and hornworts have been recently (March ) updated. I had not known about this key prior to seeing this announcement. Another in the awesome "North Woods" series. Clear photographs, excellent descriptions. A great starter book and an invaluable field guide for anyone with an interest in lichens.

I am getting a collection of the North Woods guides, and so far they have all been top notch. This one is no s: With perhaps close to 20, copies sold globally, Lichens of North America (Brodo et al. ) is likely the most popular book on lichens published to date; while not quite a field guide, it is.

Lichens are interesting organisms. They are diverse, adaptable, functional, and little understood. They play an important role in our natural ecosystems and can let us know when those ecosystems are in trouble. Lichens are beautiful, especially when you view a lichen-drenched Douglas-fir or a colorful crust-covered cliff, and up close when viewed under a hand-lens or microscope.

In Identifying North American Lichens, May et al. () ranked these “working keys” foremost in their list of “twenty most useful” lichen identification references. To be sure, Bruce’s keys represent the only comprehensive set of identification keys to North American lichens since Bruce Fink’s Lichen flora of the United States.
