Determination of the unique evolutionary patterns that prevail in the Antarctic springtail (Gomphiocephalus hodgsoni)
Entry ID: K025_2006_2007_NZ

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The energetic budgets (activity) of Antarctic springtails (Gomphiocephalus hodgsoni) was investigated at Cape Bird, Ross Island and the Garwood Valley, McMurdo Dry Valleys to determine the unique genetic, co-evolutionary and metabolic patterns/rates that evolved in polar invertebrates across sites in Antarctica. The activity of arthropods (mites and springtails) was measured with pitfall trapping ... View entire text
