Anhydrobiotes can resist complete dehydration and survive the dry state for extended periods of time. During drying, cytoplasmic viscosity increases dramatically and in the dry state, the cytoplasm transforms into a glassy state. Plant anhydrobiotes possess large amounts of soluble non-reducing sugars and their state diagrams resemble those of simple sugar mixtures. However, more detailed in vivo measurements using techniques such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and electron… CONTINUE READING
