At Quartz Mountain, they come in greenish yellow, grayish green and yellowish orange.. Lichens are fascinating organisms.. Every lichen is actually composed of two distinct species.. One species is a kind of fungus.. Usually the other species is an alga, This association of fungi & algae is so complete that they behave and look like an entirely new being.. The fungus benefits from the algae because fungi, having no chlorophyll, can't photosynthesize their own food.. A lichen's fungal part is thus "fed" by its photosynthesizing algal part.. The algae benefit from the association because the fungus is better able to find, soak up, and retain water and nutrients than the algae.. Also, the fungus gives the resulting lichen shape.. Lichens will grow almost anywhere that is reasonably well-lit and stable.. They may grow on soil, rock, or even the sides of trees.. Now you know what that “greenish yellow STUFF” is on the rocks.. Its lichen- a cool association of fungus & algae!..
