Tab. 1: Mean water loss by mosses and lichens at 40%, supplement to: Smith, Ronald I Lewis (1988): 2.5 Aspects of cryptogam water relations at a Continental Antarctic Site. Polarforschung, 58(2/3), 139-153

Ronald I Lewis Smith
The loss of water in a desiccating atmosphere (c.40% r.h. at 10°C) and uptake of water from a saturated atmosphere (100% r.h. at 10°C) was recorded at intervals over periods of many hours or days in the dominant mosses and macroiichens occurring near the Australian Casey Station. Wilkes Land, continental Antarctica. While major differences exist in the water holding capacity and rates of water loss between mosses and lichens, the minimum levels attained after prolonged...
