Why do not lichen

Answer :

It is a bio-indicator and sensitive to pollution from automobiles. Lichens are highly susceptible towards sulphur dioxide. A compound in them reacts with sulphur dioxide to form a poisonous chemical that kills the plant itself. Delhi has maximum number of automobiles, hence has a highly polluted environment and lichens do not grow here.
