  • Abiotic factors influence microbial diversity in permanently cold soil horizons of a maritime-associated Antarctic Dry Valley

    Stomeo, Francesca; Makhalanyane, Thulani P.; Valverde, Angel; Pointing, Stephen B.; Stevens, Mark I.; Cary, S. Craig; Tuffin, Marla I.; Cowan, Don A. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The McMurdo Dry Valleys collectively comprise the most extensive ice-free region in Antarctica and are considered one of the coldest arid environments on Earth. In low-altitude maritime-associated valleys, mineral soil ...
  • Accuracy assessment of land surface temperature retrievals from Landsat 7 ETM + in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica using iButton temperature loggers and weather station data

    Brabyn, Lars; Zawar-Reza, Peyman; Stichbury, Glen; Cary, S. Craig; Storey, Bryan; Laughlin, Daniel C.; Katurji, Marwan (Springer, 2013)
    The McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica are the largest snow/ice-free regions on this vast continent, comprising 1 % of the land mass. Due to harsh environmental conditions, the valleys are bereft of any vegetation. Land ...
  • Adaptations to submarine hydrothermal environments exemplified by the genome of Nautilia profundicola

    Campbell, Barbara J.; Smith, Julie L.; Hanson, Thomas E.; Klotz, Martin G.; Stein, Lisa Y.; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Wu, Dongying; Robinson, Jeffrey M.; Khouri, Hoda M.; Eisen, Jonathan A.; Cary, S. Craig (Public Library of Science, 2009)
    Submarine hydrothermal vents are model systems for the Archaean Earth environment, and some sites maintain conditions that may have favored the formation and evolution of cellular life. Vents are typified by rapid fluctuations ...
  • Aerobiology Over Antarctica - A New Initiative for Atmospheric Ecology

    Pearce, David A.; Alekhina, Irina A.; Terauds, Aleks; Wilmotte, Annick; Quesada, Antonio; Edwards, Arwyn; Dommergue, Aurelien; Sattler, Birgit; Adams, Byron J.; Magalhaes, Catarina; Chu, Wan-Loy; Lau, Maggie C.Y.; Cary, S. Craig; Smith, David J.; Wall, Diana H.; Eguren, Gabriela; Matcher, Gwynneth; Bradley, James A.; de Vera, Jean-Pierre; Elster, Josef; Hughes, Kevin A.; Cuthbertson, Lewis; Benning, Liane G.; Gunde-Cimerman, Nina; Convey, Peter; Hong, Soon Gyu; Pointing, Steve B.; Pellizari, Vivian H.; Vincent, Warwick F. (Frontiers Media S.A., 2016-02-16)
    The role of aerial dispersal in shaping patterns of biodiversity remains poorly understood, mainly due to a lack of coordinated efforts in gathering data at appropriate temporal and spatial scales. It has been long known ...
  • Airborne bacterial populations above desert soils of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica

    Bottos, Eric M.; Woo, Anthony C.; Zawar-Reza, Peyman; Pointing, Stephen B.; Cary, S. Craig (2014-01)
    Bacteria are assumed to disperse widely via aerosolized transport due to their small size and resilience. The question of microbial endemicity in isolated populations is directly related to the level of airborne exogenous ...
