Caption: Lichens growing on the bark of cut logs which have been left for several years. Lichens comprise an alga and a fungus living in partnership. The alga, confined to a layer of single cells in the main body of the fungus, produces nutrients for the lichen by photosynthesis. Lichens grow on a variety of substrates, from bare rock in Arctic regions to tree trunks in forests.
