Volume 2: Microlichens of the Pacific Northwest: Key to the Species


Microlichens of the Pacific Northwest Volume 2, Key to the Species, provides keys to 1424 species from the Pacific Northwest region that have main entries and 297 additional species with secondary treatments that have been reported from neighboring regions with possible occurrences in the Pacific Northwest, for a total of 1721 species.  Brief descriptions of each species are embedded in the keys.  Volume 2 contains 755 pages, and includes 479 illustrations.

The two volumes comprising Microlichens of the Pacific Northwest provide, for the first time in one place, comprehensive illustrated keys to the genera (Volume 1) and species (Volume 2) of microlichens from the Pacific Northwest of North America.  Microlichens (crustose lichens and other lichen forms that often require a compound microscope for study) encompass a vast range of forms and contribute greatly to the biodiversity of the region and the world; their species richness is, however, often unrecognized.  These volumes will greatly enhance knowledge and appreciation of these fascinating organisms, as they provide a synthesis of what is currently known about their biodiversity, distribution, and abundance in the Pacific Northwest.
