Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 2780.

Public Summary
The distribution of plants in Antarctica is chiefly limited by the availability of water and sufficiently high temperatures. This project assesses and simulates variation in these factors as experienced by Antarctic moss species, measures how mosses physiologically respond to temperature and moisture changes, and how they will ...
