Investigations of the physiological adaptations (irradiance and temperature tolerance limits) of two polar species of red algae Iridaea cordata and Phyllophora antarctica at Cape Evans
Entry ID: K062_1989_1990_NZ_1

Abstract: The most southerly populations of benthic marine algae occurring anywhere in the world are found in McMurdo Sound.
