  • Syntrichia caninervis is a desert moss and the dominant bryophyte of the biological soil crusts found in the Gurbantunggut desert of Northwestern China. The extreme desert environment is characterized by prolonged drought, temperature extremes, high radiation and frequent cycles of hydration and dehydration. S. caninervis has gained particular attention due to its extreme desiccation tolerance. It is an ideal organism for the identification and characterization of genes related to abiotic stress tolerance[1] [2].
