Red-cedar and Lichen
Red-cedar and Lichen
The trunk of this red-cedar had an array of different lichens and mosses but the combination of this 'leafy lichen' (foliose) and vine made for a great subject. Lichens are very sensitive and therefore great indicators of atmospheric pollution. Australia has around 2,820 species of lichen - 2,000 of which occur nowhere else in the world.
