Habitat Suitability - Soil Moisture

Summary

Abstract: 

Investigation of the variation in soil biota and soil properties across the McMurdo Dry Valleys as part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. The moisture content of soil samples which are collected for organism extraction and identification is determined. This study was carried out in the austral summer 1993/1994
