Abstract
Main conclusion Desiccation leads to structural changes of the inner pectic cell wall layers in Ulva compressa . This contributes to protection against mechanical damage due to desiccation–rehydration cycles. Ulva compressa, characterized by rbcL phylogeny, is a common species in the Mediterranean Sea. Ulva as an intertidal species tolerates repeated desiccation–rehydration cycles in nature; the physiological and structural basis were investigated under experimental conditions here. Desiccation to 73 % relative water content (RWC) led to a significant decrease of the maximum quantum yield of photosystem II (Fv/Fm) to about half of the initial value. A reduction ...
