Summary
Abstract: A taxonomic assessment of sea ice bacteria abundance and their response to climate induced stress was investigated from the sea ice around Seabee Hook, Cape Hallett. Four sites at different points around Seabee Hook were established for a representative survey of the annual ice present in Edisto Inlet. The ice had broken out the previous year and new ice formed over the winter providing ideal ... View entire text
