Estimates of the rate of photosynthesis, nitrate reduction and sulphate reduction of bacteria in Antarctic ponds and lakes
Entry ID: K009_1982_1983_NZ_2

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Samples of algae and bacteria were from the east and west lobe of Lake Bonney (sediment), Lake Miers sediment, Lake Fryxell (9.75m and 14m sediment) and an oligotrophic and eutrophic pond at Cape Bird. All samples were incubated for 0, 3h, 6h, 12h, and 24h and then subjected to experiments measuring photosynthesis, nitrate reduction and sulphate reduction. During photosynthesis small organic ...
