  • 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 ...
  • Ancient origins determine global biogeography of hot and cold desert cyanobacteria

    Bahl, Justin; Lau, Maggie C.Y.; Smith, Gavin J.D.; Vijaykrishna, Dhanasekaran; Cary, S. Craig; Lacap, Donnabella C.; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Papke, Thane; Warren-Rhodes, Kimberley A.; Wong, Fiona K.Y.; McKay, Christopher P.; Pointing, Stephen B. (Macmillan Publishers Limited, 2010)
    Factors governing large-scale spatio-temporal distribution of microorganisms remain unresolved, yet are pivotal to understanding ecosystem value and function. Molecular genetic analyses have focused on the influence of ...
  • Global Diversity of Desert Hypolithic Cyanobacteria

    Lacap-Bugler, Donnabella C.; Lee, Kevin K.; Archer, Stephen David James; Gillman, Len N.; Lau, Maggie C.Y.; Leuzinger, Sebastian; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Maki, Teruya; McKay, Christopher P.; Perrott, John K.; de los Rios-Murillo, , Asunción; Warren-Rhodes, Kimberley A.; Hopkins, David W.; Pointing, Stephen B. (Frontiers Media SA., 2017)
    Global patterns in diversity were estimated for cyanobacteria-dominated hypolithic communities that colonize ventral surfaces of quartz stones and are common in desert environments. A total of 64 hypolithic communities ...
  • Highly specialized microbial diversity in hyper-arid polar desert

    Pointing, Stephen B.; Chan, Yuki; Lacap, Donnabella C.; Lau, Maggie C.Y.; Jurgens, Joel Allan; Farrell, Roberta L. (2009-11-24)
    The McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica are a cold hyperarid polar desert that present extreme challenges to life. Here, we report a culture-independent survey of multidomain microbial biodiversity in McKelvey Valley, a ...
  • Stochastic and deterministic effects of a moisture gradient on soil microbial communities in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica

    Lee, Kevin C.; Caruso, Tancredi; Archer, Stephen David James; Gillman, Len N.; Lau, Maggie C.Y.; Cary, S. Craig; Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Pointing, Stephen B. (Frontiers Media, 2018)
    Antarctic soil supports surface microbial communities that are dependent on ephemeral moisture. Understanding the response to availability of this resource is essential to predicting how the system will respond to climate ...
