Organic and inorganic nitrogen uptake in lichens

  title={Organic and inorganic nitrogen uptake in lichens},
  author={Lena Dahlman and J{\"o}rgen Persson and Kristin Palmqvist and Torgny N{\"a}sholm},
In order to learn more about nitrogen (N) acquisition in lichens, and to see whether different lichens differ in their affinity to various N sources, N uptake was measured in 14 various lichen associations (“species”). These species represented various morphologies (fruticose or foliose), contrasting microhabitat preferences (epiphytic or terricolous), and had green algal, cyanobacterial or both forms of photobionts. N was supplied under non-limiting conditions as an amino acid mixture… CONTINUE READING
