Microbial mat development and production variation in relation to physio-chemical variation in 13 ponds that all originated from one greater pond near Bratina Island on the McMurdo Ice Shelf
Entry ID: K081_2005_2006_NZ_1

Abstract: Microbial mat development and production varies from pond to pond due to the physio-chemical variation amongst the ponds. To study this variation a series of 13 ponds were selected that had originated from one greater pond which had drained due to a tide crack opening up. Cores of microbial mats were collected from all 13 ponds for particulate nutrient and pigment analyses, biomass determination ... View entire text
