This is the third volume in the series dealing with the lichens. It includes descriptions of some of the more robust and luxuriant species of cool-temperate south-eastern Australia (Lobariaceae and Sphaerophoraceae), as well as ecologically important soil-inhabiting groups in semi-arid and arid regions (Peltulaceae, Endocarpon and Placidium). Also includes treatments of crustose lichens, including the mainly saxiclous Verrucariaceae, and the Trichotheliaceae, a family that is most diverse on the bark and leaves of trees and shrubs in tropical rainforest. Complete or partial accounts of seven orders are provided, including nine families, 24 genera and 256 species and infra-specific taxa. It is the work of 14 authors, illustrators and photographers. Also available in paperback.
