It emphasizes the ecophysiology of lichens and their role in carbon and nitrogen fixation, as well as in mineral /5(4). Contributions range from viruses, diatoms, fungi, lichens, mites and nematodes; through butterflies, dragonflies, flies and slugs; to flowering plants, ferns, mammals, birds and fish.
