Candle flame Lichen

The fungi I chose to research was the Candelaria concolor, whose common name is the Candleflame lichen. The candleflame lichen is usually found growing on the bark of deciduous trees in open areas however it can grow on many different materials including rocks. They grow well on trees because the tree sheds rain water down its bark and in these streams is usually where the lichen grows. This lichen can live all year round going from pale and brittle during dry seasons to brightly coloured and soft when there is more moisture. it has been discovered that the growth of this lichen is negatively affected by air pollution and therefore the presence of the candle flame lichen can be used as a bioindicator of air pollution.
