Lichen-forming fungi and their photobionts


Honegger, R (2009). Lichen-forming fungi and their photobionts. In: Deising, H. Plant relationships, 2nd ed. Berlin: Springer, 305-333.

Abstract

This chapter focuses on peculiarities of lichen symbiosis and of lichen-forming fungi in comparison with non-lichenized taxa, photobiont diversity, photobiont-derived mobile carbohydrates, specificity of lichen symbiosis, modes of dispersal, functional thallus anatomy, mycobiont-photobiont interactions and the role of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fungal cell wall compounds with regard to gas exchange and water relations of the symbiotic system, foliicolous lichens, lichen growth in extreme climates, poikilohydric water relations and drought stress induced reversible cytoplasmatic cavitation, ice nucleation, uptake and accumulation of ions and radionuclides, sources of fixed nitrogen, mycobiont-derived secondary compounds. Economic perspectives are briefly summarized.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
