Abstract

In the ordinary works on Lichenology, the main
object of the author is to give such a description of a
species as will enable a student to determine a plant by
himself, by examination of the thallus with a pocket lens,
and of the apothecia and spores by the aid of a microscope.
The spermagonia and spermatia may be briefly referred to,
but other matters are usually ignored. In this paper
no reference will be made to a macroscopic study of the
thallus, or to the histology of the apothecium, its paraphyses
or spores.
In preparing the material for this paper, serial
sections of the following lichens were cut, stained, and
mounted for examination : Parmelia tiliacea, Ach., P. tinctorum, Despr., P, perlata, L., P.limbata, Laur., P. lara, M.A., P. perforata, Arch., P.latissima, Fee, P. placorhodioides, Nyl., P. mundata, Nyl., P. olivacea, L., P.cetrata v. sorediifera, Wain., and P. saxatilis v. signifera, M.A.
