Estimates of growth rates of lichen from photographs of lichen thalli on the Mt Falconer summit and ridge and the Rhone Bench (above Lake Bonney), Taylor Valley
Entry ID: K024_1980_2008_NZ_1



Summary
Abstract: A small number of lichen thalli on Mt Falconer summit and ridge and the Rhone Bench (above Lake Bonney) were marked and photographed during the 80-81 field season. These plants were refound over subsequent years and photographed to determine growth rates of lichen in the Dry Valleys.
