Entry ID: K081_1990_1991_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The microbial adaptations of the cyanobacterial mats of the ponds of the McMurdo Ice Shelf to the environmental extremes experienced at this location, including changes in temperature and salinity, dehydration-rehydration cycles, low nitrogen: phosphorous ratios and high UV radiation was investigated. The fieldwork was mainly experimental with comparisons made between other pond systems from the ... View entire text
