The day we went outside was January 18th, 2012 the temperature was about 4ºC outside. We looked in the the forest and by a trail there was a group of trees that ale had the same lichen on it. The temperature was 4ºC. Kingdom: Fungi/plant Division: Ascomycota Class: Asomycetes Family: Parmeliaceae Order:Lecanorales Genus: Flavoparmelia Species:Flavoparmelia caperata
It was January 18th ,2012. Me and my group went to look for Lichen. The temperature outside was about 4ºC out and we were looking in the Temperate deciduous forest. We went outside at about 10:30 am. I looked at the lichen closely and saw that it had fringes on the edge and I also noticed that it wasn’t a whole lichen it is patchy with spaces in between. It looked like a shield guarding the tree so I figured it must be Green-shield lichen.
