Constraints To Ecosystem Development in High Arctic Polar Deserts
Principal Investigator: Bliss, Lawrence
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: We seek to better understand how ecosystems develop in the high arctic following retreat of ice caps. This includes studies of soil development and the influence that rocks play in this as well as studying the development of block crusts of organisms that form on the soil surface. We will also try to understand the role these crusts play in fixing nitrogen and influencing the development of flower...
