Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 3042.

Ozone depletion above Antarctica has caused large increases in springtime UVB radiation (UVBR) and recovery of the ozone layer is not expected until 2060. We have shown that increased UVBR is likely to have more negative effects on the endemic moss, Schistidium antarctici, than on two co-occurring cosmopolitan species Ceratodon ... View entire text
