Abstract: Changes in biodiversity (the numbers, types and amount of terrestrial lichens and mosses) are expected to be one signal for environmental change. Better collection techniques, better identification (assisted by molecular methods) and the use of internationally recognised experts to carry out the surveys and collection are used to improve our knowledge of the biodiversity within the Ross Sea region. Areas surveyed include: Helm Point, Redcastle Ridge, Robers Cliff and Salmon Cliff. Lists of the lichen and mosses found were created.
