Yellow! ☀️ for #Marchgladness! I believe this lovely and common lichen is Xanthoria parietina. I find it in many places, but in Portland a favorite subsrtate seems to be the black cottonwood trees (same trees we might be looking for Morchella americana under in a few weeks!) Thanks @breakfast_of_champignons for adding some color to our IG feeds this month!

Finally the snow in Wisconsin is melting and it looks like spring might be on the horizon. Even in the winter in urban areas, the trees are full of tiny treasures. This lichen seems to be very common, I believe it's Physcia stellaris.

I 💕💚💕 the Christmas lichen! While we are visiting Florida I have taken so many pictures of it. It's just so damn festive! 🎄

⁣Another little moss embroidery! this one is on a sheer fabric (tulle), some pom poms, tassels, and rock beads in there too. Video in my story highlights.⁣⠀

Gonna wiggle these beautiful Cladonia sp. lichen into #marchgladness they’re red and contain fungi after all! One of the aspects I love about lichen and the genus Cladonia in particular, they tend to form little communities that contain various species. Theres actually a handful of Cladonia lichen sharing a small sliver of wood and accumulated biomass in this photo. Also, theres some lovely white moss, Leucobryum albidum, scattered throughout. So be like the lichen and make an awesome community by surrounding yourself with friends and likeminded people! #lichen #lichens #lichenology #lichenofinstagram #symbiosis #fungi #fungus #botany #botanist #cryptogam #fungiphotography #naturemacro #algae #lichenlove #mushroomphotography #mycology #mushroomsociety #macrophotography #fantasticfungi #biology #biologist #biologyteacher #fieldwork #naturephotography #mycophile #naturelovers #getoutside #plants #plantsofinstagram

One of the more magical attributes of a redwood forest is that it creates not only a unique ecosystem on the ground, but also across every inch of space hundreds of feet above the soil! A single tree all on its own can be a living habitat for an astounding number of species. ⁣
⁣
After redwoods shed their foliage, the majority of its discarded layers accumulate in the branches, slowly decomposing to become canopy soil. This nutrient rich soil is a key ingredient in assisting plant seeds and fungi spores to sprout, high above the earth.⁣
⁣
Epiphyte species, or plants that grow in trees rather than on the ground, can number in the hundreds, and include lichens, bryophytes, or non-vascular plants such as moss), and vascular plants such as ferns. Additional epiphytes like mushrooms, which exist in a kingdom of their own, adorn the limbs and bark of these magnificent beasts. ⁣
⁣
On the forest floor and alongside the redwood roots beneath the soil one can find amphibians, beetles, crickets, worms, millipedes, spiders and mollusks. Soaring once more into the sky, you’ll find the clouded salamander, a species that breathes entirely through its skin and has a prehensile tail for climbing, thriving in the canopy alongside chipmunks, fishers, peregrine falcons, bald eagles, the northern spotted owl, the marbled murrelet and dozens of other species that call this corner of the redwood home.⁣
⁣
Humankind is still learning about the deeply intricate lives of redwoods and we’re thankful that they are still here for us to learn from. ⁣

March is terribly dreary, even with the light returning, so have a bright, robust pair of lichens spotted back in August/September of 2018 in Colorado to liven things up.
