Soil Properties Effects on Electrical Conductivity



Investigation of the effect of short-term variation in soil moisture and soil temperature on nematode anhydrobiosis as part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. The percent of anhydrobiotic (coiled) nematodes with relation to soil moisture, temperature, and salinity was determined. The study began in the austral summer of 1996/1997. Sample gathered at locations at south side of Lakes Hoare and Fryxell, plus a moss site near Canada Glacier on Jan 1st 1997
