1. Blood samples analysed for albumin to determine if the lack of this protein serum is common to the Notothenioid fish group [K066_2001_2002_NZ_1]
One species of Antarctic Notothenioid fish was found to lack the common blood protein serum albumin. It was investigated if this was common to all notothenioid fish. In addition, if this blood protein ...

2. Distribution and freeze tolerance testing of nematodes around Cape Hallett and Terra Nova Bay [K066_2005_2008_NZ_1]
Nematode worms in Antarctica are adapted to survive extreme conditions. One species, Panagrolaimus davidi, is unusual in that it can survive extra as well as intra-cellular freezing. This study investigated ...

3. Ecophysiological experiments on the springtail Gressitacantha terranova to determine genetic variation, antifreeze proteins and cold tolerance studies [K066_2007_2008_NZ_1]
This study sought to carry out primary ecophysiological experiments - cold tolerance - on the springtail Gressitacantha terranova. Bulk collections were made using aspirators and paintbrushes from ...

4. Fish tissue samples for use in phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies of notothenioid fish [K066_2001_2006_NZ_1]
Antarctica has been a frozen continent for about the last 15-20 million years. In that time, the notothenioid fish have become the dominant group of fish with about 100 new species appearing in the ...

5. Soil, nematode, and springtail sample collection from Granite Harbour [K066_2009_2010_NZ_1]
The aim of this study was to determine aspects of the environmental physiology and phylogeography of Antarctic terrestrial invertebrates. Soil samples were collected from Granite Harbour for geochemical ...

6. The identification, function and cold adaptation of the proteins/enzymes in Antarctic fish from amount and distribution of lactate dehydrogenase from seven different tissues [K066_2000_2003_NZ_2]
The cold adaptation in the proteins/enzymes of Antarctic fish was investigated in collaboration with the American Antarctic program. The likely function of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), the only isozyme ...

7. Using labelled antifreeze proteins placed in the gut of notothenioid fish to determine the path they take from the gut to the blood [K066_2000_2003_NZ_1]
The many fish that live in the waters around Antarctica have a unique set of adaptations to cope with the extremely cold conditions in which they live. They have developed antifreeze proteins (AFP) ...
