Baseline concentration of elements in the Antarctic macrolichen
Entry ID: ECA021

Abstract: Lichens and mosses are cryptogamic organisms with a number of features in common. They lack root systems, have a high cation-exchange capacity (CEC), and depend largely on atmospheric deposition for their nutrient supply. Mosses and lichens therefore have elemental compositions reflecting in an integrated way gaseous, dissolved and particulate elements in atmospheric deposition. Lichens and mosses ... View entire text
