What is lichen?
Lichen is the symbiotic association of a fungus (the mycobiont, which provides shelter and structure for the partnership or symbiosis), with an alga or cyanobacterium (the photobiont, also known as the phycobiont, which provides the food for the partnership from photosynthesis). The fungus and the alga components cannot survive alone in the environment in which the lichen symbiosis thrives. Lichen is a type of plant that is usually found in the Tundra. It also is a type of fungi. A lichen is a symbiosis of a fungus and a photosynthetic organism, either a type of bacteria or a plant. The fungus provides protection for the photosynthetic joint of its being, and the bacteria provides energy for the fungus.
