Beckett, R.P. 1998. Some aspects of the water relations of the lichen Xanthomaculina hottentotta (Ach.) Hale from the Namib Desert. South African Journal of Botany, 64(6): 346–9


Description:

Some aspects of the water relations of the lichen Xanthomaculina hottentotta (Ach.) Hale from the Namib Desert.

Summary / Notes:

The water relations of the desert lichen XanthomacuHna hotten/otta were investigated using thermocouple psychrometry. Although the water relations of X. hottentotfa were similar to those of other lichens from xeric habita ts, X. hoftentotta lost less K"'" following sudden re-wetting, contained less interce llular water and had a higher \j/1\S than these lichens. The implications of these findings for the water relations of X. hotten/otta are discussed . Keywords: Lichen, desiccation, thermocouple psychrometry, Namib desert.

Year: 1998
