Impacts of climate change on Antarctic vascular plants: warming and UV-B radiation
Entry ID: TAD001

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Our research examined the influence of ultraviolet-B radiation
(UV-B) and warming on the performance of Antarctic flowering plants
(i.e. Deschampsia antarctica, Antarctic hairgrass and Colobanthus quitensis,
Antarctic pearlwort). Our research endeavors fell into the following
categories:
