Title: Photosynthetic Response with Respect to Light in Three Strains of Lichen Algae
Creators: Showman, Ray E.

Abstract: Net photosynthetic rates of three lichen algae were studied at different light intensities. Algae from lichens with a pigmented cortex exhibited decreased net photosynthetic rates at high light intensities, while algae from a non-pigmented lichen were light-tolerant. The physiology of lichen algae appeared to be related to the pigmentation and ecological behavior of the lichen thallus.
