is clearly a problem during dry periods (region was in a drought during the study), but herbivory also appeared to increase, especially at site A3.
Nevertheless, it is possible that besides the effects of increased irradiance on desiccation
risk for seeds and seedlings, light levels have an impact on germination in Z.
m] during freezing indicates conformational changes in pigment-protein complexes due to desiccation
(Lovelock et al.
, the phospholipid arrangement in the membranes changes from a lamellar configuration to a hexagonal configuration, causing membrane dysfunction (FARRANT et al.
Overall, callus was the most vulnerable to desiccation
from NaCl and Ca[Cl.
Eggs survived complete desiccation
for at least 6 months at room temperature.
has changed the climate conditions of the region and the quality of the water that remains and led to chronic illness, it said.
This behaviour is assumed to be advantageous to the first and second instars in helping them avoid desiccation
The aim of this work was to identify pod characteristics that correlate with, seed desiccation
tolerance during development in Phalaenopsis.
of the art scene during the summer season can easily cause one to mistake the slightest relief in the landscape for an unexpected oasis.
They can be harnessed to avoid premature desiccation
in cheese, thus lowering the potential for weight loss and preserving the appearance of the product.
Petersen & Matthews (1984) using Muscidifurax zaraptor Kogan and Legner theorized that reduced suitability of previously frozen house fly pupae as hosts (over 96 h thawed) was due to desiccation
rather than putrefaction of the host.
