Antarctic Sea Ice: Biological Processes, Interactions and Variability
edited by Michael Lizotte and K. Arrigo
From the Publisher
Explores the vast expanse of sea ice surrounding Antarctica harboring one of the most dynamic ecosystems on Earth. The authors present new information about this fascinating habitat and its role within the Antarctic food web, covering a wide array of topics in sea ice biology and ecology: algal biomass, micro algal physiology, nitrogen metabolism, response to UV radiation, zooplankton grazing, numerical modeling studies, and the use of sea ice diatoms as paleoenvironmental indicators. This compilation, together with a companion volume on sea ice physical processes, reveals the widening scope of current sea ice research in Antarctica.
