Diversity, distribution and dispersal of Antarctic terrestrial algae

  title={Diversity, distribution and dispersal of Antarctic terrestrial algae},
  author={Paul A. Broady},

Terrestrial algae have been studied at widespread Antarctic localities. However, their diversity is not fully known as often collections have not been made from all habitats and techniques have been inadequate for recognition of the total flora. Identifications can be unreliable and are often left at generic level. Despite this it seems that they largely comprise cosmopolitan species but at a reduced diversity relative to other regions. There is a small element of endemic species which, in… CONTINUE READING
