Reproduction in Lichens
This note provides information about both types of reproduction in Lichen. Reproduction in lichen takes place both by sexual and asexual reproduction. Asexual reproduction takes place by fragmentation, by soredia and isidia. Sexual reproduction involves fungal partner of the lichen thallus. Most lichens resemble the fungi belonging to ascomycetes or basidiomycetes as they produce either ascospores or basidiospores.
