Desiccation sensitivity and tolerance in the moss Physcomitrella patens: Assessing limits and damage.

The moss Physcomitrella patens is becoming the model of choice for functional genomic studies at the cellular level. Studies report that Physcomitrella survives moderate osmotic and salt stress, and that desiccation tolerance can be induced by exogenous ABA. Our goal was to quantify the extent of de...
