Association between blue-green algae and fungi is called as___.

Lichens

Explanation

Lichen is the association between blue-green algae and fungi. Both the partners benefit from this relationship hence, it is called as mutualistic symbiosis. In contrast, fungi support the algae by providing protection and assist in the absorption of water. In reverse, algae provide food to fungi that lack chlorophyll pigments. In this type of relationship, no one is harmed and both are benefited from each other.
