Comparisons were made between the content of Al, Cd, Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb, Sb and Zn in thalli of the lichen Xanthoria parietina and selected physiological processes. Assimilation pigments, activity of photosystem II, parietin, reactive substances produced using thiobarbituric acid (TBA) and CO(2) gas exchange were measured in order to assess tolerance to(More)
The functional state of the photosynthetic apparatus of flowering homoiochlorophyllous desiccation tolerant plant Haberlea rhodopensis during dehydration and subsequent rehydration was investigated in order to characterize some of the mechanisms by which resurrection plants survive drought stress. The changes in the CO2 assimilation rate, chlorophyll(More)
The size, shape, and number of chloroplasts in the palisade and spongy parenchyma layers of Haberlea rhodopensis leaves changed significantly during desiccation and following rehydration. The chloroplasts became smaller and more rounded during desiccation, and aggregated in the middle of the cell. The size and number of chloroplasts in the palisade(More)
An examination of possible histological causes of differences in ozone sensitivity between ozone sensitive (R123) and resistant (S156) Phaseolus vulgaris strains was carried out. A distinction between the causes and effects of ozone sensitivity was also performed. We studied several morphological and histological traits, which included stomata number and(More)
Measurements of CO2 and H2O fluxes were carried out using two different techniques—eddy-covariance (EC) and open system gas exchange chamber (OC)—during two-years’ period (2003–2004) at three different grassland sites. OC measurements were made during fourteen measurement campaigns. We found good agreement between the OC and EC CO2 flux values (n = 63, r 2(More)
In this study we assessed the degree of copper (Cu) tolerance in two common lichen species (Cladonia furcata and Cladina arbuscula subsp. mitis) that grow on both uncontaminated substrata and the surface of waste heaps from abandoned old Cu-mines. Regardless of their locality, populations of these lichens contain identical strains of photobionts(More)
The ecophysiological responses of the homoiochlorophyllous desiccation-tolerant (HDT) plant Haberlea rhodopensis showed that this plant could tolerate water deficit and both leaves and roots had high ability to survive severe desiccation. The changes and correlation between CO2 assimilation, stomatal conductance, contents of photosynthetic pigments, root(More)
In our present studies, the recovery of photosynthetic activity after rehydration was demonstrated. We measured chlorophyll fluorescence, CO2 gas exchange and the pigment composition in the previously long-term air-dried cryptogamic inselberg crusts collected from two tropical areas. The cryptobiotic crusts were collected from different localities on(More)
Desiccation of Xerophyta scabrida caused considerable damage of chloroplast ultrastructure together with a complete loss of chlorophyll. Upon rehydration, the relative water content of the pale-green leaves almost reached that of the dark-green ones, however, the Chl content and photosynthetic activity remained lower. The process of reconstitution of the(More)
