Studies were conducted to document the effects on morphology and energy transfer in photosynthesis of severe tissue dehydration induced either by air-drying or by immersing the tissues of two Porphyra species in hyperosmotic solutions. These studies showed that the dehydration-tolerant intertidal alga, Porphyra perforata J.Ag., was almost unaffected by either of these treatments, while the dehydration-sensitive Porphyra nereocystis Anders. was damaged similary by both treatments. Damage to that… CONTINUE READING
