Lichen , any of about 15, species of thallophytic plantlike organisms that consist of a symbiotic association of algae usually green or cyanobacteria and fungi mostly ascomycetes and basidiomycetes. Lichens are found worldwide and occur in a variety of environmental conditions. A diverse group of organisms, they can colonize a wide range of surfaces and are frequently found on tree bark, exposed rock, and as a part of biological soil crust. Lichens have been used by humans as food and as sources of medicine and dye. They also provide two-thirds of the food supply for the caribou and reindeer that roam the far northern ranges. Lichens were once classified as single organisms—until the advent of microscopy, when the association of fungi with algae or cyanobacteria became evident.
