      This book is not a field guide. It is a lab manual key for serious lichenologists interested in chemical and microscopic testing and contains the latest nomenclatures. It is an updated version of the same key found in the larger book Lichens of North America. Instead of buying this book I would recommend the larger book by the same author/5(13).

Cladonia rangiferina, also known as reindeer lichen (cf. renlav) or grey reindeer lichen, is a light-colored, fruticose lichen belonging to the family grows in both hot and cold climates in well-drained, open environments.

Found primarily in areas of alpine tundra, it is extremely cold-hardy. Other common names include reindeer moss, deer moss, and caribou moss, but these Class: Lecanoromycetes.

If you're really interested in the many beautiful lichens, I recommend you get a book called Lichens of North America, by Irwin M. Brodo, Sylvia Duran Sharnoff, and Stephen Sharnoff. Cladonia stellaris is an ecologically important species of lichen that forms continuous mats over large areas of the ground in boreal and arctic regions around the circumpolar north.

The species is a preferred food source of reindeer and caribou during the winter months, and it has an important role in regulating nutrient cycling and soil microbiological : Cladoniaceae.

The wolf lichen (Letharia vulpina) has a bright yellow-green colour and grows in Europe and western North America. It contains a yellow chemical called vulpinic acid, which is poisonous to mammals. In the past, wolf lichen mixed with ground glass and meat was used as a poison for s: Globally, there are ab species of lichens; 3, species are in North America.

Cladonia pyxidata or pixie cup lichen. In the most generalized sense, lichens are divided into five categories according to their basic morphology: crustose, foliose, fruticose, squalmulose and leprose.

Later that morning, Lake Metroparks biologist John Pogacnik and his son, Shaun, guided me to a field with some open areas, shown in the photo above, in which the soil had been colonized by several species of fruticose lichens in the genus Cladonia.

There are about species of Cladonias in North America, of which 36 have been found in Ohio. Lichens of North America, written by Irwin M. Brodo, Sylvia Duran Sharnoff and Stephen Sharnoff, is part textbook, part coffee table book.A wealth of information coupled with gloriously large and detailed pictures makes this lichen guide book a goal for all other genre!
