Lichen mycobionts are a large, polyphyletic and taxonomically heterogenous group comprising about 21% of all fungi (Hawksworth and Hill 1984). 98% of lichen-forming fungi are Ascomycetes, a few belong to the Basidiomycetes (Aphyllophorales and Agaricales), and the rest are Deuteromycetes. Only those mycobiont-photobiont associations are considered as lichens in which the fungal partner is the exhabitant in the sense of Law and Lewis (1983). Mutualistic symbioses in which fungi are inhabitants… CONTINUE READING
