Biological recovery of the Bohemian Forest lakes from acidification
A limnological survey of eight small, atmospherically acidified, forested glacial lakes in the Bohemian Forest (Šumava, Böhmerwald) was performed in September 2003. Water chemistry of the tributaries
Freshwater lakes of Ulu Peninsula, James Ross Island, north-east Antarctic Peninsula: origin, geomorphology and physical and chemical limnology
Abstract This study describes the origin, bedrock geology, geomorphology, hydrological stability and physical and chemical characteristics of a representative set of 29 lakes in the ice-free parts of
Sanguina nivaloides and Sanguina aurantia gen. et spp. nov. (Chlorophyta): the taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography and ecology of two newly recognised algae causing red and orange snow
TLDR
It is demonstrated that spherical cysts sampled from alpine mountains in Europe, North America and South America as well as from both polar regions have a cosmopolitan distribution with an absence of geographical structuring, indicating an effective dispersal strategy with the cysts being transported all around the globe, including trans-equatorially.
A curious occurrence of Hazenia broadyi spec. nova in Antarctica and the review of the genus Hazenia (Ulotrichales, Chlorophyceae)
TLDR
Molecular sequence data indicate that this freshwater filamentous green algae with branched thalli belongs to the genus Hazenia, and it was described as a new species (Hazenia broadyi spec. nova).
Diversity, ecology and biogeography of the freshwater diatom communities from Ulu Peninsula (James Ross Island, NE Antarctic Peninsula)
TLDR
The results from the similarity and diversity analysis suggest James Ross Island to be biogeographically positioned within the Maritime Antarctic region, yet with some affinities with the flora of Continental Antarctica, as shown by the presence of Luticola gaussii and Achnanthes taylorensis.
Temperature dependence of photosynthesis and thylakoid lipid composition in the red snow alga Chlamydomonas cf. nivalis (Chlorophyceae).
TLDR
The thermodynamics of the process revealed the existence of an increased structural flexibility that is explained with the amino acid changes in the D1 protein combined with the physico-chemical characteristics of the thylakoid membrane composed of > 80% negatively charged phosphatidylglycerol.
