Book Description

July 15 1998
A Rocky Mountain Lichen Primer is an introduction and field guide to lichens in the Rocky Mountain region. It features seventy-two color plates picturing the most common and conspicuous species to be found in the mountains and foothills of the Rockies. Many of these lichens are also common in other geographic areas, giving the book a broader utility for those interested in lichens elsewhere. In addition to the plates, A Rocky Mountain Lichen Primer contains a brief description of each species to assist in identification, along with a general introduction to lichens and their structure. The book is tailored to the novice, and includes a section on beginning a lichen collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks like a Junior High School science project May 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book appears to have been slapped together with less than two weeks of work. I was constantly confused by discrepancies between the descriptions and the photographs. Lichens described as bright green, chartreuse, orange, red, etc., were all about the same dull shade of gray-brown in the pictures. This may be due to poor photography, poor reproduction, or the fact that the lichens pictured are old dessicated herbarium specimens rather than living lichens in their natural setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars a handy backpack reference Feb. 23 2000
By Dr. Jim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This little book of pretty pictures of lichens is slightly larger than a Reader's Digest but not quite as thick, so it will fit into your backback but not into your pocket. It tells you what you want to know without getting too botanical and will add greatly to what you will see on your next hike, and the one after that, and the one after that, and the one after ----
