Investigations of the invertebrate fauna associated with samples of lichen, mosses and green algae taken from sites in Victoria Land and Ross Island
Entry ID: K014_1970_1971_NZ_1

Abstract: Lichens mossess and green algae were collected from sites in Victoria Land and Ross Island including Cape Hallett, the Strand Moraines, Blue Glacier, Lake Fryxell, Suess Glacier, Marble Point, Granite Harbour, Mt Suess Mt England, Dunlop Island, Spike Cape, Hjorth Hill, Cape Evans, Cape Royds and Cape Crozier. The associated invertebrates fauna and especially the Tardigrada (or water bears) were investigated. The results would bring the systematics of the Tardigrades of the Ross Sea sector up to date and provide adequate keys and illustrations to identify water bear species.
