Relationship between frost tolerance and sugar concentration of various bryophytes in summer and winter

  title={Relationship between frost tolerance and sugar concentration of various bryophytes in summer and winter},
  author={Dorothea R{\"u}tten and Kurt Adolf Santarius},
Frost resistance, measured via the photosynthetic capacity after freeze-thaw treatment, and concentrations of sucrose, glucose and fructose of thalli of seven species of Bryidae and one species of Marchantiidae were determined from January to March and June to September, respectively. A distinct increase in cold tolerance from summer to winter was found in Polytrichum formosum Hedw., Atrichum undulatum (Hedw.) P. Beauv., Plagiomnium undulatum (Hedw.) Kop., Plagiomnium affine (Funck) Kop., Mnium… CONTINUE READING
