Book Description
About the Book
This is the first book on lichens from India. This includes sixteen chapters. The first chapter gives a general account about lichens. The remaining fifteen chapters are on various aspects of geographical distribution of these lichens and their taxonomy. One interesting chapter is on lichen-mite association. Two chapters are on the role of lichens in degradation of monuments. Nine chapters are on lichens from various regions of India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. One chapter describes distribution of lichens near Japanese streem vent. Number of original colour photographs give authenticity of various taxa and make the book attractive to the readers.

This book is dedicated to Dr. Dharni Dhar Awasthi.

Lichen research is fast developing in Asia but there is no single book incorporating all the essential elements worked out in India and for that matter in Asia. It is almost impossible for one person or even two to keep up with all the taxonomic, ecological, experimental work and speculation on the subject of lichens. There has been such an enormous amount of work during the last thirty years or so therefore it has not been possible to review all the topics in detail. Most of the major contributions in Lichen Biology in India has been done under the supervision of Dr. D.D. Awasthi of Lucknow University. Lucknow, U.P., India.
