(nfluence of tannins, amino acids and sugars on fungi of marine halophytes

S. Ravikumar, K. Kathiresan


The fungal load on leaves of 11 marine halophytes was studied along with the contents of tannins, sugars and amino acids in leaf tissues and their leakiness. The fungal load was more on leaf litter than that on fresh leaves. These higher densities on litter were found associated with lower content of tannins and sugars, higher content of amino acids, lower leakiness of tannins and sugars, and higher leakiness of amino acids
