Algal Species, Morphotype Descriptions

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a systematic sampling program has been undertaken to monitor the abundance and species distribution of algal mats in glacial meltwater streams of the region. This table contains descriptions of the morphotypes found for algal species belonging to the family Oscillatoriaceae. Morphotypes were based on physical characteristics.
