Growing our own, Making our own
Lichens, algae and fungi are NOT plants at all! Algae are from the protist kingdom, fungi are a kingdom of organisms more closely related to animals than to plants. Lichen are more complicated, they are a symbiosis between algae, cyanobacteria and fungi. Yes they are all non-vascular, but only mosses are (primitive) plants.
Hey Lizzy, thanks for making that important distinction. This definitely adds to the diversity of the Glossary.
