These Pseudocyphellaria billardierei and Usnea filipendula or Beard Lichen are pressed and then printed to illustrate some of the depth of interconnection amongst species which we often miss. Lichens are a symbiosis of two or three fungi and an algae. Lichens can be used as a bioindicator as it prefers to only grow in those regions where the air is clean, and of high quality. Lichens have been used in medicine, dying for textiles, cosmetics and fire starting.

“I’m not sure if this is an algae that found a home in a fungi, or a fungi that has enslaved an algae. But if I had to take a guess, I’d say it’s the fungus that’s the one in charge. “- Tasmanian Geographic magazine.
