GSH conjugation appears to be the key step for MCs detoxication as MC-GSHs had lower toxicity and higher hydrophily compared with original toxins [17].
On the other hand, the hydrophily of--CON[H.sup.2] was less than--CO[O.sup.-], the hydrophilicity of the polymer network decreased with the increase of AM.
Quadrats on the shore had greater species richness (mean S = 8.13) and diversity, (mean H' = 1.58) than quadrats in the emergent (S = 5.79, H' = 1.02) or open water zones (S = 3.62, H' = 0.67), where hydrophily is required for species to survive.
