Soil Properties Effects on Chlorophyll-A Concentrations

Summary

Abstract: 

Investigation of the effect of short-term variation in soil moisture and soil temperature on nematode anhydrobiosis as part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. The percent of anhydrobiotic (coiled) nematodes with relation to soil moisture, temperature, and salinity was determined. The study began in the austral summer of 1996/1997. Samples gathered in the south side of the Lakes Hoare and Fryxell, and in a moss site near the Canada Glacier on Jan 1st 1997

Date Range: 

Wednesday, January 1, 1997 to Thursday, January 2, 1997
