It was the same rich green that one sees on forest moss or on the lichen
in caves: plants which like these grow in a perpetual twilight.
This plant belongs to the genus Cladonia, and somewhat resembles the reindeer lichen
It seemed to have become vegetable; to have degenerated in that rank, sunless air to lush lichen
or spreading moss that grew in patches to the staircase and was viscid under the foot like organic matter.
He stepped over to the nearest tree--an old, old one with gray lichen
all over its bark, but upholding a curtain of tangled sprays and branches.
I was startled by a great patch of vivid scarlet on the ground, and going up to it found it to be a peculiar fungus, branched and corrugated like a foliaceous lichen
, but deliquescing into slime at the touch; and then in the shadow of some luxuriant ferns I came upon an unpleasant thing,--the dead body of a rabbit covered with shining flies, but still warm and with the head torn off.
Occasionally the marks were hidden under tufts of myrtle, which spread into large bushes laden with blossoms, or beneath parasitical lichen
Life altogether is but a crumbling ruin when we turn to look behind: a shattered column here, where a massive portal stood; the broken shaft of a window to mark my lady's bower; and a moldering heap of blackened stones where the glowing flames once leaped, and over all the tinted lichen
and the ivy clinging green.
It's inspired by lichens
found in the natural world--their rich textures and colors as well as regenerative role in the ecosystem.
In order to encourage the large scale study of lichens
in and around Oklahoma, Strawn explains the basic characteristics needed to understand lichen
biology and identification.
We evaluated the potential of saxicolous lichens
as a natural source of novel bioactive actinobacterial species.
A survey method for assessing the richness of epiphytic lichens
using growth forms.
So she has come here, not to check sophisticated equipment, but to find lichens
Background: Natural products from lichens
are widely investigated for their biological properties, yet their potential as central nervous system (CNS) therapeutic agents is less explored.
represent a highly successful nutritional strategy, which allows the symbiotic organisms to greatly expand their ecological range.
are widely distributed in all the geographical region of the world.
