Photosynthetic responses of a moss, Tortula ruralis, ssp. ruralis, and the lichens Cladonia convoluta and C. furcata to water deficit and short periods of desiccation, and their ecophysiological
We report the changes in CO2 assimilation, potential photochemical activity (as measured by slow fluorescence), photosynthetic pigment concentrations, and dark respiration of two desiccation-tolerantExpand

Ecophysiological responses of homoiochlorophyllous and poikilochlorophyllous desiccation tolerant plants: a comparison and an ecological perspective
There is an apparently stark contrast in ecophysiological adaptation between the poikilochlorophyllous desiccation-tolerant (PDT) angiosperm Xerophyta scabrida and homoichlorophyllousExpand

The carbon budget of semi-arid grassland in a wet and a dry year in Hungary
Data on net ecosystem exchange (NEE) dynamics and carbon balance of a dry, extensively managed sandy grassland, as measured in Hungary in the years 2003 and 2004 are reported. The grassland was aExpand

Water-content components in bryophytes: analysis of pressure-volume relationships
ing full-turgor water content for physiological work on water-stress responses in bryophytes is emphasized. The water associated with a bryophyte can be divided into (a) apoplast water held inExpand

Optimizing Phytoremediation of Heavy Metal-Contaminated Soil by Exploiting Plants' Stress Adaptation
Soil phytoextraction is based on the ability of plants to extract contaminants from the soil. For less bioavailable metals, such as Pb, a chelator is added to the soil to mobilize the metal. TheExpand

Ecophysiological consequences of contrasting microenvironments on the desiccation tolerant moss Tortula ruralis
Tortula ruralis is a homoiochlorophyllous-desiccation-tolerant (HDT) moss that retains all pigments when dehydrated and rapidly recovers physiological function upon rehydration. This moss formsExpand

ABA Increases the Desiccation Tolerance of Photosynthesis in the Afromontane Understorey Moss Atrichum androgynum
Abstract The effect of pretreatment with abscisic acid (ABA) on the physiology of the moss Atrichum androgynum during a desiccation–rehydration cycle was examined. During rehydration followingExpand

Reconstitution of chlorophylls and photosynthetic CO2 assimilation upon rehydration of the desiccated poikilochlorophyllous plant Xerophyta scabrida (Pax) Th. Dur. et Schinz
Resynthesis of the photosynthetic apparatus and resumption of CO2 assimilation upon rehydration is reported for the monocotyledonous and poikilochlorophyllous desiccation-tolerant (PDT) plantExpand
