Part of a series which looks at the world of plant-life, a subject of increasing importance today as exploitation of the world's resources threatens to upset the delicate balance that sustains life for plants, animals and people, this book looks at fungi and lichen. The series presents a balanced, up-to-date approach to the diversity of plant-life, the basic life-cycles and adaptations to the environment, and the effects plants have on our lives. Each book details specific plant groups such as ferns or conifers, tropical hardwoods or cacti - their habitat, geographical locations and place in the plant kingdom; basic botanical information such as photosynthesis, symbiosis, pollination, seed dispersal; plants within environments and ecological considerations - such as: acid rain, the greenhouse effect, the ever-increasing deserts, cash crops, endangered species.
