Caption: Lichen (Xanthoria parientina) growing on a rock. Lichen is a mutualistic (beneficial) association between a fungus and an alga. Lichen can survive in harsh environments. The fungus is thought to protect the alga that lives inside it, while the alga photosynthesizes a carbohydrate that the fungi uses as food.
