"The study of lichenology has gained widespread attention and impetus all over the world in recent times. In India, lichens were studied from time immemorable. The abundance and diversity of lichens in tropical and subtropical parts of the world differs very little from those of temperate regions. The former has abundance of crustose lichens, and the latter has richness in foliose and fruitcose lichens. Potential areas of research have brought greater triumph to global recognition for lichen studies. It tends to be the lichen biotechnology, biomonitering levels of pollutants in air, weathering of rocks and soil formation. Lichens are now being used in perfumery and medicine industries. The present book is dedicated entirely to lichen systematics and opens up a new geographical location of this country for lichen source. The language is simple, lucid and supplemented by well drawn illustrations, keys and photographs. This book will be of immense help to students, researchers, monographers, who intend to pursue the study of lichenology and will prove as a helpful reference book." (jacket).
