The vegetation at Beaufort Island was assessed and a report written to ICAIR including a description of the area, species present, comparison to other Dry Valley vegetation, the merits of the vegetation and recommendations of other features worthy of protection.
The data is reported in the publication. All data is held by the investigator. Please contact Professor Allan Green for more information.
Any plant collections (~30,000 mosses, liverwort and lichens collected by Professor Rod Seppelt from Antarctica and sub-Antarctic Islands) will be housed in the Australian Antarctic Division herbarium. This herbarium is being formerly ... transferred to the Tasmanian Herbarium. As specimens are fully incorporated into the herbarium (ADT) the data is automatically sent to and held in the Antarctic Database at the Australian Antarctic Division Data Centre. The data is currently in two separate databases, one which searchable and the other is in the process of being moved over.
