Bacterial succession in Antarctic soils of two glacier forefields on Larsemann Hills, East Antarctica.

Abstract

Antarctic glacier forefields are extreme environments and pioneer sites for ecological succession. Increasing temperatures due to global warming lead to enhanced deglaciation processes in cold-affected habitats, and new terrain is becoming exposed to soil formation and microbial colonization. However, only little is known about the impact of environmental… (More)
