Lichens and their Photobionts

Instructor: Daphne Stone, PhD
Dates: Saturday-Sunday, October 17-18, 2015
Location: Selma
Tuition: $150
 
Students will get a look at photobionts that are part of a lichen’s symbiosis of fungus, algae and/or cyanobacteria. Photobionts supply food to the fungal partner through photosynthesis. We’ll learn about the relationship of lichen fungal bodies to their associated groups of photobiont species. Then we’ll section a lichen and examine its photobiont using compound microscopes. We’ll note the various placements of photobionts, then step back to see the effects different algae and cyanobacteria have on lichen coloration. An integral part of this class will be learning to make thin sections of the lichen thallus, a skill often essential for solid species identification.
