Biofilms growing on ice and benthic mats are among the most conspicuous biological communities in Antarctic landscapes and harbour a high diversity of organisms. These communities are consortia that make important contributions to carbon and nitrogen input in non-marine Antarctic ecosystems. Here, we study the effect of increasing temperatures on the carbon and nitrogen metabolism of two benthic communities on Byers Peninsula (Livingston Island, Maritime Antarctica): a biofilm dominated by… CONTINUE READING
