Lichens are comprised of two organisms, a fungus and tiny green algae known as cyanobacteria. It is a symbiotic relationship, similar to what coral has with some marine algae. But it is not yet known if this relationship between the Lichen's fungus and the blue green algae is beneficial to one, as in parasitic, or mutual to both.
