Abstract: The winter snowfall (during 1994) was unusually large and the area of Botany Bay was uniformly covered to a depth of 50 to 70cm. Furthermore, air temperatures were low being rarely above -6° C. These conditions allowed the opportunity to study the effects of high light at low temperatures on lichens and to track lichen performance at low temperatures. Daily photosynthetic performance was measured ... View entire text
