Abstract

This review considers various aspects of the growth of crustose lichens revealed by direct measurement including : 1) early growth and development; 2) radial growth rates (RGR); 3) the growth rate-size curve; and 4) the influence of environmental factors. Many crustose species comprise dicrete areolae that contain the algal partner growing on the surface of a non-lichenized fungal hypothallus. Crustose species have a low RGR accompanied by a low demand for nutrients and an increased allocation of carbon for stress resistance; therefore enabling colonization of more extreme environments
