Chlorophyll a fluorescence and temperature measurements from lichen and mosses buried under snow at Botany Bay, Granite Harbour
Entry ID: K024_1999_2000_NZ_2

Abstract: Fluorescence (chlorophyll a fluorescence) activity measurements were recorded for selected plants for about three weeks to determine if the photosystems of lichen or mosses are active in differing levels of light. Fibre optic probes were fixed to rocks at Botony Bay, Granite Harbour in such a way that the chlorophyll a fluorescence from an adjacent lichen or moss could be monitored. The ends of ...
