Looking at Lichen
Sunday 4th October 2015
On Troopers Hill we were joined by expert David Hill to look at an important aspect of the Hill's ecology that is often overlooked - Lichens.
This was a rare chance to find out more about something that everyone will have seen but few take the time to look at in detail. Lichens are symbiotic relationships between fungi and cyanobacteria / green algae and seen close-up these have an amazing range of colours and textures.
There are links to photographs of lichens on the Hill and a report produced in 2009 by Justin Smith on our Wildlife Page
