Photosynthetic physiology (CO2/O2 exchange, optimum temperature and light levels) of common bryophytes species that grow in the melt streams from glaciers in the Dry Valleys
Entry ID: K024_1979_1980_NZ_3

Abstract: Previous work (by Rostofer, 1970) covered the photosynthetic physiology of two common bryophyte species (Bryum antarcticum and B. Argenteum) found in the melt-streams from glaciers in the Dry Valleys by growing them in a lab using elevated carbon dioxide levels to determine optimal temperature range. This work was repeated using natural carbon dioxide levels and plants that had been collected ... View entire text
