Lecidea silacea
I have been having a really blah day, and so I needed a colorful lichen to brighten my mood. I am not sure it gets any brighter than L. silacea! This crustose lichen has a thick thallus of bright rusty-red or orange. It is cracked and tile-like, with black apothecia dotting the surface. It grows on acidic rock in arctic-alpine habitats in Europe, Greenland, and North America. Never let a bad day go by without reminding yourself that the world is full of adorable little lichens that look like squishy little piles of clay but are actually very hard and durable and will most likely outlast you on this godforsaken world. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah, isn't L. silacea so cute???

Lichens as Biological Fertilizers
flickr
Lichens as Biological Fertilizers by Field Museum Via Flickr: Lichens have many different roles in ecosystems. One of their most important is to act as biological fertilizers. Nitrogen is one of the essential nutrients, forming part of organic and macromolecules such as amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids (DNA, RNA), and chlorophyll. Nitrogen occurs in the nitrogen cycle in four forms, as free nitrogen (N2) in the atmosphere, as ammonia (NH3), as nitrite (NO2–), and as nitrate (NO3–). Whereas plants are able to incorporate nitrate into their metabolism through a process called assimilation, the other three forms can only be used by different kinds of bacteria. Hence, bacteria are essential to maintain the nitrogen cycle and making plant, animal, and fungal life possible. The most important source of nitrogen is the free nitrogen that makes up 78% of the atmosphere. However, only certain bacteria are capable of using this form of nitrogen and incorporating it into the nitrogen cycle, through the process of fixation. Many of these bacteria form symbioses with plant roots, for example in the bean family (Fabaceae). Another large group are cyanobacteria, and many of these enter symbioses with fungi to form lichens. Cyanobacterial lichens are especially abundant in nutrient-poor environments and hence, with their substantial biomass, act as biological fertilizers, without the negative side effects of industrial nitrates. Some of these lichens are depicted here (from left to right, top to bottom): Sticta, Placopsis (a green algal lichen with additional cyanobacteria in so-called cephalodia), Cora, Leptogium, Lobariella, Erioderma.
