Syllabus der Boden-, Luft- und Flechtenalgen

Algen spielen neben den Bakterien und Pilzen eine wichtige Rolle im Bodenleben. Zur Vertiefung der Kenntnis bodenbewohnender eukaryontischer Algen fehlte bisher ein Bestimmungswerk, das die weltweit verstreuten Daten zusammengefasst darstellt. Über one thousand Algenarten sind bislang aus Böden, aus der Luft und aus Flechten beschrieben, doch ist das Wissen über Lebensvorgänge, Reproduktion, Entwicklung usw.

These compounds include: ●● phenolic compounds, alkaloids, cyanogenic glycosides, and protease inhibitors to discourage insect and animal herbivores ●● cell wall‐degrading enzymes such as chitinase and ­glucanase, and defense molecules such as saponins to destroy pathogenic fungi and bacteria ●● latexes, wound‐clogging emulsions of hydrophobic ­polymers that possess insecticidal and fungicidal prop­ erties and also serve as antiherbivory agents Sequestration of toxic compounds: Plants cannot escape from toxic sites.

Preliminary evidence suggests that such attachment sites may serve as sites of calcium transport via calcium channels (for example, between plasma membrane and ER) and/or mediate non‐vesicular, intermembrane lipid transport.
