Title: The influence of water and nutrient availability on bryophyte communities in continental Antarctica
Description:
Abstract:
Bryophyte Ecophysiology - response to water and nutrients. This project is also related to ASAC project 1313 (ASAC_1313) - Impact of global climate change on Antarctic flora: long-term monitoring and ecophysiological studies of bryophyte community dynamics in the Windmill Islands - and to the State of the Environment indicator Windmill Islands terrestrial vegetation dynamics (SOE_Windmill_Island_veg). File descriptions All files are associated with a multiseason manipulative field experiment investigating the effect of increased water and nutrient availability in Antarctic terrestrial communities. For full details refer to Chapter 4 in Wasley (2004). A number of scans relating to the pilot data collected in this project are available for download. Currently these are low resoluton scans, but will be updated in time to better quality images. Study Site The experiment was conducted in Antarctic Specially Protected Area (ASPA) 135, on Bailey Peninsula, approximately 1 km east of Casey Station. The site was located on the western edge of a meltlake, at 66 degrees 16.03' S, 110 degrees 32.53' E. (For further details, see the download file) These datasets include: Excel spreadsheets of data - chlorophyll a fluorescence, Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM), Nucelar Pore Complexes (NPC), Sugars, Turf Water Content (TWC). A word document detailing each of the spreadsheets. A copy of a thesis produced from this work. Two figures showing sample locations. The fields in these datasets are: Sample Treatment Community Date Extraction volume Weight Chlorophyll a Time PAM NPC Sugar Glucose Fructose Sucrose Arabitol Ribitol Mannitol Sorbitol Myo-Inositol Glycerol Trehalose Stachyose TWC Water Content
