Vegetation surveys and trails of a 'tracker' system to allow both topography and plant occurrence to be mapped at Cape Royds
Entry ID: K024_1996_1997_NZ_2


Summary
Abstract: A species list and vegetation notes of the Cape Royds area was completed. A high density of lichens occurred (eg Usnea sphacelata)at Horseshoe Bay and inland near the ice edge (Caloplaca sp.). A 'tracker' system was put under trial to allow both topography and plant occurrence to be mapped.
