Anastatica – Wikipedia

An axillary inflorescence is produced at the branch point and forms a dense cluster of sub-sessile, white flowers with four petals Figures anastatiac. Further support for a higher photorespiratory flux in the extremophytes can be derived from the higher glycerate levels in A. Learn More in these related Britannica articles: On the other hand, there was no further reduction in the FW of A. Data are representative of similar results from two independent experiments.

Low induction of non-photochemical quenching and high photochemical efficiency in the annual desert plant Anastatica hierochuntica.

We also discerned species-specific responses that differentiated between the extremophytes. Spores are agents of asexual reproduction, whereas gametes are agents….

Acknowledgments The authors thank Noga Sikron for excellent technical help and Albert Batushansky for statistical advice. Abiotic stress, hierochuhtica field environment and stress combination. The various stresses to which an extremophyte exhibits tolerance reflect the combination of stresses characteristic of each specific habitat.

The increased accumulation of metabolites observed in the extremophytes is costly Munns, and could contribute to the slower growth rate of E. Spores thus differ from gametes, which are reproductive cells that must fuse in pairs in order to give rise to a new individual. Higher expression of E.
