PressestimmenFrom a review of the first edition: '... provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the fascinating world of lichens ... a well written book with information presented in a way that is easy to grasp ... has the potential to fulfill the author's intention not only to attract lichenologists, but also students and scientists in related fields.' S. Dietz, Journal of Experimental Botany '... an extremely detailed review of current knowledge ... a new dimension to study.' British Ecological Society TEG News 'I have no reservations in recommending it.' David L. Hawksworth, Trends in Plant Science '... research workers and university teachers ... will find it a valuable and up-to-date resource.' P. D. Crittenden, Journal of Applied Phycology '... an excellent book.' D. C. Smith, Journal of New Phytology 'Nobody has done more than Thomas Nash, III to demonstrate that lichens are living, breathing creatures ... A review volume of this sort is both a challenge and a credit to its editor'. S. Hammer, Trends in Microbiology 'This book is learned in style and is avowedly aimed at the specialist, whether amateur or professional. I would add that it should be an essential reference for serious students, project researchers, and teachers of lichenology, It is a very timely an up-to-date summary of the state of lichenological studies.' Lichen Biology 'This new edition is most welcome ... a work all mycological (including lichenological) libraries should have available for consultation on their shelves.' Mycological Research
