Population genetics of the lichen species Umbilicaria aprina, Umbilicaria decussata and Buellia frigida along a latitudinal gradient in the Ross Sea region
Entry ID: K024_2006_2008_NZ_1

Abstract: A latitudinal change in population genetics of selected lichen species was conducted to determine whether these lichen communities have spread along a latitudinal gradient from northern latitudes during the reasonably recent time period of the modern ice sheet or are relics from refugia, such as nunatuks, which have existed since the time of Gondwanaland. Samples of Umbilicaria aprina, Umbilicaria ... View entire text
