• Periodicity of benthic photosynthesis in Lake Fryxell, Antarctica

      Vopel, K; Hawes, I; Doran, PD (AUT University, 2011)
      Filamentous forms of cyanobacteria, the earliest known oxygenic photosynthesising organisms, are the primary structuring agents in modern-day benthic microbial mat consortia. Under conditions of low sedimentation rates and ...
    • Photosynthetic performance of benthic microbial mats in Lake Hoare, Antarctica

      Vopel, K; Hawes, I (American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), 2006)
      We measured in situ photosynthesis of benthic microbial mats at various depths in Lake Hoare, a permanently ice-covered lake of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica, using oxygen (02) microelectrodes. We further investigated ...
