Benthic diatom flora of freshwater and saline lakes in the Larsemann Hills and Rauer Islands, East Antarctica
TLDR
In the Larsemann Hills Antarctic endemics account for about 40% of all freshwater and brackish taxa, while the biogeographic distribution of about 26% is unknown, mainly due to their uncertain taxonomic identity, which contradicts the view that cosmopolitanism prevails in Antarctic diatoms. Expand
Limnology and biology of saline lakes in the Rauer Islands, eastern Antarctica
TLDR
The hypothesis that environmental extremes and biogeographical isolation control the biology of these lakes is supported and their species-environment relationships explored using multivariate statistics. Expand
Environmental factors influencing the pigment composition of in situ benthic microbial communities in east Antarctic lakes
TLDR
The ability of the cyanobacteria to regulate their pigment content, morphology, community composition and motility to best exploit the light environment at different lake depths may explain their dominance in these systems. Expand
