A hot house experiment at Cape Bird to determine the effects of microclimate on plant establishment
Entry ID: K052_1982_1983_NZ_5

Abstract: A small perspex frame was placed over bare mineral soil adjacent to the mosses in Keble Valley to examine the effects of humidity, temperature and microclimate on plant establishment. Many green shoots and algae were observed within the frame whilst the control site was bare of vegetation. The area was resurveyed a year later. A six channel temperature probe was used to test the microclimate.
