1. The influence of water and nutrient availability on bryophyte communities in continental Antarctica [ASAC_1087]   CHILD METADATA
Project summary: Our research aims to increase the understanding of how moss communities in continental Antarctica will respond to future climate change. The Windmill Islands region is believed to ...

2. Adaptive strategies of lichen species to cold environments: Antarctica and the Mediterranean high mountains. [CNDA-ESP_ANT94-0905_LIQ_05]   PARENT METADATA
In English: At the beginning of the 1990's our ecophysiological research on Antarctic lichens was focussed on adaptations to cope with low temperatures. We assumed that low ...

3. Biology of lichen communities in Antarctica. [CNDA-ESP_LIQ_PAD]   CHILD METADATA
In English: This dataset contains information on the registered data on studies of the biology of lichen communities in Antarctica. This dataset is also the parent record ...

4. CO2 incubation data collected during the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012 [SIPEX_II_CO2_Incubations]   PARENT METADATA
Pulse Amplitude Modulation (WaterPAM, Walz) was used to measure the response of the sea ice brine microalgae to CO2 stress. All data was reported in WinControl software and follows standard formats. ...

5. Experimental measurements of the effects of the environmental factors (temperature, light, water content and carbon dioxide concentration) on the photosynthesis activity of Antarctic mosses and lichens at Cape Hallett [K024_1998_1999_NZ_2]
A detailed study of how the environmental factors temperature, light, water content and carbon dioxide concentration affected photosynthesis of the two common mosses Bryum argenteum and B. pseudotriquetrum ...

6. FRagility of Arctic Goose habitat: Impacts of Land use, conservation and Elevated temperatures [FRAGILE]
The tundra ecosystem lies under threat. Increased numbers of breeding geese, caused by changes in European land use and bird protection measures, may damage the vulnerable tundra vegetation. Examples ...

7. Field measurements of temperature, moisture and photosynthetic activity in three species of moss at Casey over a two week period in January 2003 [ASAC_1313_Moss_Field_Measurements]
Samples were collected at ASPA 135, at the melt lake, northeast side. This metadata record provides data collected during 2002/3 at Casey. Temperature sensors (i-buttons) were inserted into moss ...

8. Heavy metal toxicity to Antarctic macroalgae measured using a robotic PAM fluorometer [Algal_Toxicity_Project]   PARENT METADATA
Experiments were carried out at Casey Station over the summer of 2005-2006 to investigate declines in chlorophyll fluorescence following from exposure to seawater spiked with heavy metals. Chlorophyll ...

9. Measurements of the shielding against UVA by protective pigments in the moss Bryum subrotundifolium at Botany Bay, Granite Harbour [K024_2000_2001_NZ_2]
A new chlorophyll fluorescence system, UVA PAM allowed the protective shield against UVA radiation to be measured in the moss Bryum subrotundifolium. An area of the moss was heavily shaded for 10 ...

10. Photosynthetic Response of Antarctic and Subantarctic Plants to Light and UV Stress in Undisturbed/Disturbed Habitats [ASAC_227]
Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 227 Photosynthetic Response of Antarctic and Subantarctic Plants to Light and UV Stress in Undisturbed/Disturbed Habitats including Recommendation ...

This data set contains primary productivity, pulse amplitude modulated fluorometry, and nutrient drawdown numbers associated with the abstract presented below. 14C Primary Productivity Gross column-integrated ...

13. Study of nitrogen fixation, photosynthesis and lichenic recolonisation in the Antarctic tundra. [CNDA-ESP_ANT93-0011-E_LIQ_04]   PARENT METADATA
In English: Scientific objectives: -Evaluate the degree of nitrogen fixation in run offs by Leptogium puberulum and Nostoc sp. in relation to their photosynthetic activity ...

14. The biomass, productivity and biodiversity of algae in the Cape Hallett region [K043_2003_2005_NZ_1]
The distribution and biodiversity of algae was assessed to enable possible future predictions of the effects of global warming. Sites (5 in the first season, 4 in the second) were established around ...

15. The biomass, productivity, physiology and grazing pressures of phytoplankton during the polar winter in the Ross Sea region [K043_2007_2008_NZ_1]
What happens to primary production during the long polar night was investigated in the Ross Sea region. Phytoplankton samples were obtained from the water column at Cape Armitage and Cape Evans. Phytoplankton ...

16. The response of sea ice and brine water algae and bacteria to changes in salinity, temperature, light and UVB in Terra Nova Bay [K043_2006_2008_NZ_4]
Samples of the bottom ice algae and brine algae (within 30cm of the top of the ice) were subjected to temperature, salinity, light and UVB experiments and analysed with PAM rapid light curves to determine ...
