Soil Depth Effects on Anhydrobiosis of Nematodes

Summary

Abstract: 

Investigation of the effect of soil depth on soil biota and properties was part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. The proportion of soil nematodes found in an anhydrobiotic survival state was monitored at various soil depths in Taylor Valley to help accomplish this. Samples were taken on 21-Nov-1994 and 26-Dec-1994.
