Biological, physical and chemical parameters in water and microbial mat samples from ponds in the Labyrinth area of Wright Valley
Entry ID: K081_2003_2005_NZ_1

Abstract: Water and microbial mat communities of the ponds in the Labyrinth area of Wright Valley was investigated to test the hypothesis that the gradient in climatic severity associated with latitudinal and altitudinal gradients drives a corresponding gradient of biological diversity and productivity. The biological, physical and chemical parameters of 12 ponds were sampled in mid-January. Aspects of the ... View entire text
