Abstract: 5 fig. [Study of net photosynthesis and its dependence on thallus water content in seven lichens. "The relationships found between NP and WC could be divided into four response types based on the degree of depression of NP at maximal WC. Type A lichens (Cladonia convoluta, Diploschistes muscorum) showed no or almost no depression, type B (Squamarina lentigera) only a little at the highest thallus water contents. Type C (Collema tenax, Toninia sedifolia) had a large depression which became steadily greater as water content increased; type D lichens Cladonia pocillum, Fulgensia fulgens) behaved similarly, but the response curve had an inflection so that NP became low but almost constant."]
