Microbial communities living in mosses are known to constitute early indicators of ecosystem disturbances, but little is known about their response to environmental factors in the Antarctic area. This paper presents the first major study on testate amoebae from different species of mosses occurring on King George Island (Antarctica). The objective of the study was to investigate the structure and spatial distribution of moss-dwelling testate amoebae communities and to identify the environmental… CONTINUE READING
