Genetic variability and patterns of colonisation in Antarctic mosses
Entry ID: K022_1992_1995_NZ_1

Abstract: The geographic and microgeographic organisation of variation at genetic marker loci in mosses of the McMurdo Sound region was investigated. Samples of five species of mosses including Bryum argenteum, Bryum pseudotriquetrum, Pottia heimii, Sarconeurum glaciale and Ceratodon purpureus were collected from sites from Ross Island and Southern Victoria Land including Cape Bird, Cape Royds, Cape ...
