"Ice nucleation activity at temperatures warmer than -5°C may enhance the uptake of atmospheric moisture by enhancing condensation and/or causing deposition of ice from water vapor to occur earlier as the temperature drops below 0°C. Once an ice lattice is formed, further deposition occurs more readily. When the temperature rises, the lichen thallus may then absorb moisture from the melting ice." (Kieft 1988:1680)
