Abstract: A detailed study of how the environmental factors temperature, light, water content and carbon dioxide concentration affected photosynthesis of the two common mosses Bryum argenteum and B. pseudotriquetrum was conducted at Cape Hallett. Four microclimate recording stations were set up to monitor conditions at selected key plant sites. Complete matrices for Bryum argenteum and B. pseudotriquetrum ... View entire text
