What is a lichen? Lichenologist Manuela Dal Forno will take students on an exploration of the world of lichens, helping them to realize that lichens are living all around us—from forests to city streets. Manuela will explain what lichens are and how the lichen symbiosis works. Your class will get to see Manuela’s student interns in action, extracting DNA from lichens in one of the Smithsonian’s labs. Throughout the broadcast, Manuela will take questions from your students via text chat and there will be opportunities for them to share what they think using live polls.
