The present study shows the occurrence of remarkable interannual variation in the meteorological conditions at Byers Peninsula (Livingston Island, South Shetlands Islands, Antarctica), in which one of the summers was significantly colder than the others. Within this climatic scenario, a limnological study was carried out at Lake Limnopolar during three(More)
High-energy flowing water habitats such as waterfalls are uncommon in Antarctica, though they may become more regular as temperature increase. Both high spatial and temporal environmental variability is expected on them. The extent of their biological colonization will depend on the amount of ecological strategies displayed by the surrounding biota. We(More)
Most of the parsers deened for TAG (Tree Adjoining Grammar) formalism are based in classical CFG (Context-Free Grammar) parsers. An elementary tree is considered a set of CFG-rules and adjunction operation is simulated by substitution. Additional control considerations must be added in order to establish the real power of TAGs. In this paper, we present one(More)
This study aims to introduce the robust optimum (RO) method as an alternative to the classical weighted averaging (WA) method for estimating the ecological optimum as well as the optimum and tolerance ranges of a taxon with respect to an environmental variable in limnological studies. The RO method is based on robust location and scale estimates rather than(More)
Southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) are apex predators of marine Antarctic food webs, and variations in their populations have been linked to environmental changes. Consequently, measuring and reporting the status of elephant seal populations provide insights into the environmental status of Antarctica. Here, we present new information on the size of(More)
