Tropical lichens are not only of interest in themselves but are of importance in the study of the ecosystems of which they are a part. Information on tropical lichens has not hitherto been readily available in book form, and the object of this volume is to synthesize what is known at present and to indicate areas where further research is needed. The material presented here is derived from a meeting held by the Systematics Association at which contributions were presented on the systematic, ecological, and biogeographical aspects of tropical lichens, together with the problems of their conservation. The resulting volume should thus be of value to a wide variety of scientists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Tropical lichenology is just beginning to achieve the status of a coherent subject, and a conference drawing the widely dispersed lichenologists together was a very timely action. * D.H. Brown, 1991 Annals of Botany Company *
18 contributions are included in these well edited proceedings, covering many aspects of the lichen biology of tropical America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific ... A wider availability of this valuable book in the libraries of higher education institutions in the tropics would enhance the possibility of more studies of tropical lichens being undertaken by local scientists in the future. * Mien A. Rifai, Herbarium Bogoriense, Puslitbang Biologi - LIPI, Bogor, Indonesia *
The volume provides an overview of the current status of tropical lichenology, and identifies many problem areas.
