Summary
Abstract: A taxonomic and ecological survey of the terrestrial algae was conducted in the vicinity of Lake Fryxell, Taylor Valley and Cape Bird and supplemented with samples from Marble Point, the lakes and ponds in the Victoria, Taylor and Wright Valleys (e.g. Lake Vanda and Don Juan Pond) and Mt Erebus summit. >160 wide ranging samples were examined microscopically. All algal taxa observed were drawn and ... View entire text

Description: Please contact the investigator for any information or access to existing data

Description: The algae culture collection is stored in a -20 freezer at the Molecular Laboratory and Allan Herbarium at Landcare Research, New Zealand. It is unknown what cultures are still viable and what species are available. The lab has PC2 containment and transfers have to be done according to Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) protocol. Contact Phil Novis: NovisP@landcareresearch.co.nz for more information.

Quality The data is very well described and documented in the publications.
Some cultures may still exist and are held by Landcare Research, New Zealand. The quality of these cultures is unknown.
Field notebooks, diaries, etc are retained by the investigator.
Access Constraints If the cultures are wanted to be transeferred from Landcare Research, the receiving lab needs to have the necessary containment certification (i.e. PC2 containment) and transfers have to be done according to MAF protocol. Otherwise the work needs to be done in the Landcare Research Molecular lab.
