Environmental protection, management and classification of terrestrial ecosystems in the Ross Sea Region
Entry ID: K123_2010_2012_NZ_3

Abstract: Soil samples from a diverse range of soil types have been collected from the Wright and Victoria Valley Systems, to determine whether soil distribution patterns aid prediction of microbial abundance and diversity. The research develops an environmental classification for terrestrial ecosystems of Ross Sea region. The classification includes associated data and models and is underpinned by new ...
