    HEre are two photos of the lichens on the birch bark and on the highest 1500 meters above sea leavel in Southern part of Albania. There is very nice scenary there and a beautiful mediterraanean montanous forest. There I understood very well the botany and saw waht I have learned in school.

    About lichens I have limited knowledge. What is the name of lichens that one which look like white spot?

    Hi ariani, I know very little about lichens BUT I know people here in UK mention the books by Frank Dobson. Here's a link to an article by my wonderful botany tutor, June Chatfield, which has a book list at the bottom including Frank Dobson's books (I just googled his name & lichen & was very happily surprised to see this article). They are specifically for UK lichens though, so I don't know if this will help you?

    Oops, forgot the link :
