The spatial and temporal variability of nutrients (nitrogen, phosporous, carbon) and plant biomass (cyanobacterial biofilms) on the McMurdo Ice Shelf ecosystem
Entry ID: K081_1987_1988_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The area near Bratina Island was studied by examining scales (large and small) of variability (spatial and temporal) of nutrients and plant biomass on the McMurdo Ice Shelf (MIS) with an aim to examine the role of the abundant cyanobacterial biofilm communities in controlling the supply and demand of dissolved nitrogen. Special emphasis was placed on the assessment of cyanobacterial growth and ... View entire text
