*We examined the photosynthetic characteristics and net primary production of biological soil crusts to evaluate their contribution to the carbon cycle in the High Arctic glacier foreland. *Biological soil crust samples were collected from a deglaciated area in Ny-Alesund, Svalbard, Norway. Net photosynthetic rates (Pn) and dark respiration rates (R) of biological soil crusts were determined using CO(2) gas exchange rates. We examined the effects of moisture conditions, temperature and photon… CONTINUE READING
