- ... Drought is an increasingly important limitation on plant productivity worldwide. Understanding the mechanisms of drought tolerance in plants can lead to new strategies for developing drought-tolerant crops. Many moss species are able to survive desiccation—a more severe state of dehydration than drought. Research into the mechanisms and evolution of desiccation tolerance in basal land plants is of ...
