Summary
Abstract: The distribution and identity of lichens, mosses and endolithic algae were examined at sites around Granite Harbour, the Darwin Glacier and Igloo Spur at Cape Crozier to extend sampling of the Ross Sea Region to assess levels of biodiversity and to provide information on the origin, evolutionary relationships and present day dispersal pathways of Antarctic moss and lichen taxa. Each area was searched carefully and specimens were sampled for DNA analyses while GPS readings were taken for each sampling site. Descriptions and maps of the vegetation were prepared and included with the geology. Sampling sites include: Mt Suess, Sperm Bluff, Granite Harbour, Cape Geology, Botany Bay and the flat area above it, Discovery Bluff, Battleship Promontory, Mt Falconer, the Foggydog Glacier, Diamond Hill, Lake Wellman, Dusky Ridge, Smith Valley and Igloo Spur at Cape Crozier.

Quality
All data is held by the investigators. Please contact for more information. Collected samples will be held in either the Australian Antarctic Division Herbarium or in Madrid, Spain with Dr Leo Sancho.

The plant collections (~30,000 mosses, liverwort and lichens collected by Professor Rod Seppelt from Antarctica and sub-Antarctic Islands) are 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.
