AFI 02/30_01 - The status of dark septate fungi in Antarctic plant and soil communities - Fungal cultures, plant and soil samples (live and frozen) collected from the northern Antarctic Peninsula region in 2002/2003
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-AEDC-00260

Abstract: Three plant species, the leafy liverwort Cephaloziella varians and the angiosperms Deschampsia antarctica and Colobanthus quitensis, were sampled from 12 islands across a 1480 km latitudinal gradient from South Georgia through to Adelaide Island. Samples were collected to determine the abundance of dark septate fungi in Antarctic plant and soil communities and the effects of these organisms on ... View entire text
