Soil Properties Effects on Soil Moisture

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 nematodes with relation to soil moisture, temperature, and salinity was determined. The study began in the austral summer of 1996/1997. Locations: South side Lake Hoare and Fryxell, and moss site near Canada Glacier.

Date Range:
