B305: Collaborative Research: Biogeochemistry of cyanob...

Researchers will study the microbial ecology of the hyporheic (wetted) zone of dry-valley glacial melt-water streams. They will determine how carbon and nitrogen, fixed by cyanobacteria in microbial mats, affect bacterial activity, dissolved organic carbo ...

B420: The Role of Resource Legacy on Contemporary Linka...

The McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) projects will continue to investigate the McMurdo Dry Valleys as an end-member ecosystem and focus on the relative roles of legacy and extant processes on current biodiversity and ecosystem structure and fu ...

G441: Lake Joyce Microbialites Resubmittal

This project, part of NASA's Exobiology Program, will support a robust, interdisciplinary scientific effort that will investigate the benthic microbial ecosystem in Lake Joyce, a perennially ice-covered lake in the McMurdo Dry Valleys. In 1997 while condu ...

K018: Ross Sea Meroplankton

www.lgp.aq

The pelagic community of the Ross Sea consists of a permanent component (= holoplankton) and a temporary component which is primarily made up from the larval stages of benthic marine invertebrates and fish (= the meroplankton). As part of the Latitudinal ...

K020: Predicting Biocomplexities in Dry Valley ecosyste...

This research focuses on describing and interpreting biocomplexity of terrestrial ecosystems in the Ross Sea region delivering a GIS/biodiversity database model linking biodiversity, landscape and environmental factors in a form that is easily understood ...

K043: Microbial Biodiversity in Land-Fast Sea Ice in th...

www.lgp.aq

Changing patterns of microbial diversity along a latitudinal gradient in the Ross Sea are sensitive indicators of climate change. This research will generate a bio inventory of the micro-organisms in sea ice using both conventional methods and molecular t ...

K066: Physiological and Phylogenetic Relationships Amon...

www.lgp.aq

This research aims to understand how terrestrial organisms have adapted to changes in the Antarctic climate during the last 35 million years. To do this, we will conduct physiological and phylogeographic studies of freezing tolerant and freezing resistant ...

K082: Coastal Benthic Ecosystem Structure and Function

Characterising the structure and function of benthic communities and determining their relationships to key environmental factors is essential to an improved understanding of Antarctic ecology and wise management of the Antarctic coastal zone. This progra ...
