Lichens are an amazing symbiotic relationship between fungus and algae. Usnea are a genus which are usually a pale grayish-green that grow like leafless mini-shrubs or tassels anchored on bark or twigs. Usnea species are Nitrogen-haters so are used as indicators of local pollution levels. The lichens are picked from windfallen branches and dried.
