The biomass, productivity and biodiversity of algae in the Cape Hallett region
Entry ID: K043_2003_2005_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The distribution and biodiversity of algae was assessed to enable possible future predictions of the effects of global warming. Sites (5 in the first season, 4 in the second) were established around the Cape Hallett peninsula and samples of algae were collected from the ice at regular intervals. As far as possible these sites represented the range of conditions of sea ice in the region. CTD probes ... View entire text
