Comments "In response to environmentally relevant UV-B wavelengths, only wild-type PS832 spores showed no significant difference in their UV resistance between the wet and dry states (Table 1). In contrast, spores of both strains FB72 and FB108 were significantly more resistant to UV-B (four- and ninefold, respectively) when irradiated in suspension than when irradiated in the dry state (Table 1)."
