Soil profile descriptions, Lake Wellman region, Antarctica
Entry ID: K123_2007_2008_NZ

Abstract: We sampled a chronosequence of soils on moraines in the Darwin Mountains ranging from early Holocene (10 ky) to mid Quaternary (ca 900 ky) in age to test if the structure and diversity of microbial communities are related to soil development.
