Kinds of Lichens

Kinds of Lichens is a short video looking at three kinds of lichens: crustose, foliose, and fruticose. The crustose lichen is crusty. It seems to be applied to the bark of a tree, but it rests lightly. It is an air plant and does not hurt the tree. The foliose lichen is like foliage, leafy. The fruticose lichen branches like a tree. Here it is a deer lichen. Video taken in Rocky Bayou State Park on the Red Cedar Nature Trail, NW Florida on April 23, 2010.
