The leaf blade anatomical features of Deschampsia antarctica Desv. growing in Robert Island, South Shetland Islands, Maritime Antarctic (62°22'S 59°43'W) and in clones cultivated in the laboratory for two years, at 2 ± 1.5 and 13 ± 1.5 oc and 180 J.UllOI m·2 s 1 of irradiance were studied by light and scanning electron microcospy. Since D.antarctica is growing under the harsh environmental conditions of the Maritime Antarctic for at least five millennia, it is postulated, that their leaf… CONTINUE READING
