Title: About the length of active life of some xerophytic cryptogams in the dry season
Year: 1983
Volume: 16
Pages: 67-72.

Abstract: A whole night-long experiment was carried out with the aim of clearing up whether xerophytic mosses and lichens were able to live active life daily or only after rainfalls in the dry season. The dynamism of water content of the plants was studied in the field with the aid of gravimetric determinations. In this case a 6-7 hours' long (within it about 2 hours' photosynthetic) active life was proved in a Hungarian sandy steppe.
