Osmoregulatory Responses of Fungi Inhabiting Standing Litter of the Freshwater Emergent Macrophyte Juncus effusus.

Standing litter of emergent macrophytes often forms a major portion of the detrital mass in wetland habitats. Microbial assemblages inhabiting this detritus must adapt physiologically to daily fluctuations in temperature and water availability. We examined the effects of various environmental conditions on the concentrations of osmoregulatory solutes… (More)
