Sinopsis: Interest in lichenology is growing rapidly. This book provides a guide to identifying the British and Irish species for both the amateur naturalist just starting to study lichens, and the more advanced student. In addition, because of its references to air pollution and distribution, it offers the environmentalist and ecologist a concise work of reference. This enlarged and completely updated edition now covers about 600 species, thus including the more common species and a good selection of the rarer ones. It also provides a description of most species to be found in Great Britain and Ireland, those excluded being, in most cases, very rare. Entries consist of a description together with the simple chemical reactions. Notes on habitat and distribution are given, together with a distribution map and the approximate sulphur dioxide tolerance of the species. In many cases there are notes to assist in the separation of superficially similiar species. A particular feature of this book is the large number of photographs, with most species illustrated in black and white, and nearly 100 in full colour. These photographs are supplemented by numerous line drawings of microscopic and other diagnostic features. The popular generic lateral key has been retained in an improved form that makes the generic identification of a specimen even easier than before. A generic synopsis has been included to assist the more experienced lichenologist. Each genus has a key or table to the species contained in this book. Where there may be confusion, these keys often include similiar species from other genera. Where genera are closely related a group key is frequently supplied.
