The structure and environmental physiology of Antarctic cyanobacterial mats in the McMurdo Ice Shelf ecosystem
Entry ID: K081_1989_1990_NZ_1

Abstract: A detailed understanding of how cyanobacterial mats in the ponds of the McMurdo Ice Shelf are structured and how they derive their carbon, nitrogen and energy supply was investigated with a broad range of analytical techniques. The light capturing and UV screening properties of the mats were revealed using in situ spectro-radiometery, and by subsequent extraction, analysis and characterisation of ... View entire text
