A detailed study of how the environmental factors temperature, light, water content and carbon dioxide concentration affected photosynthesis of the two common mosses Bryum argenteum and B. pseudotriquetrum ...


10. Heard Island lichen samples collected by John Jenkin in 1980 [Heard_lichens_1980]
A description of lichen samples collected from Heard Island during March of 1980. The samples were mostly collected by John Jenkin, but some other collectors were also used. On return to Australia, ...


11. Latitudinal Gradient Project - Australian contributions [LGP]
This record relates to the Australian component of the Latitudinal Gradient Project. The LGP is largely a New Zealand, US and Italian venture, but a small contribution has been made by Australian ...


12. Macquarie Island Bibliography [AADC-00016]
This metadata record describes a bibliography compiled by Dr Donald S. Horning of the Tumblegum Research Laboratory about Macquarie Island. The download file contains three word documents, all of ...
