Listing Detail Tabs

The Lichens of New Zealand include many of the largest and finest to be seen anywhere in the world and, indeed, New Zealand is the headquarters of several large and conspicuous lichen genera. This book, the first in the southern hemisphere to be devoted to these extraordinarily interesting plants, enables the reader to understand their nature, their identification and their uses – including a section on their uses as natural dyestuffs that will be invaluable to craftwork enthusiasts., But the main body of the book describes forty-six of the leading New Zealand genera with particulars of their habitats and their habit of growth, and the characteristics by which each specie may be identified. Clear and useful “keys” are appended to most of the genera which will assist the collector to identify his specimens.
