    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 ...
  • Biotic interactions are an unexpected yet critical control on the complexity of an abiotically driven polar ecosystem.

    Lee, Charles K.; Laughlin, Daniel C.; Bottos, Eric M.; Caruso, Tancredi; Joy, Kurt; Barrett, John E.; Brabyn, Lars; Nielsen, Uffe N.; Adams, Byron J.; Wall, Diana H.; Hopkins, David W.; Pointing, Stephen B.; McDonald, Ian R.; Cowan, Don A.; Banks, Jonathan C.; Stichbury, Glen A.; Jones, Irfon; Zawar-Reza, Peyman; Katurji, Marwan; Hogg, Ian D.; Sparrow, Ashley D.; Storey, Bryan C.; Green, T.G. Allan; Cary, S. Craig (2019)
    Abiotic and biotic factors control ecosystem biodiversity, but their relative contributions remain unclear. The ultraoligotrophic ecosystem of the Antarctic Dry Valleys, a simple yet highly heterogeneous ecosystem, is a ...
  • Co- variation in soil biodiversity and biogeochemistry in northern and southern Victoria Land, Antarctica

    Barrett, John E.; Virginia, R. A.; Wall, Diana H.; Cary, S. Craig; Adams, Byron J.; Hacker, A. L.; Aislabie, Jackie M. (Cambridge University Press, 2006)
    Data from six sites in Victoria Land (72–77°S) investigating co-variation in soil communities (microbial and invertebrate) with biogeochemical properties showthe influence of soil properties on habitat suitability varied ...
  • Genetic diversity among populations of Antarctic springtails (Collembola) within the Mackay Glacier ecotone

    Beet, Clare Rose; Hogg, Ian D.; Collins, Gemma Elyse; Cowan, Don A.; Wall, Diana H.; Adams, Byron J. (Canadian Science Publishing, 2016)
    Climate changes are likely to have major influences on the distribution and abundance of Antarctic terrestrial biota. To assess arthropod distribution and diversity within the Ross Sea region, we examined mitochondrial DNA ...
  • High levels of intraspecific genetic divergences revealed for Antarctic springtails: evidence for small-scale isolation during Pleistocene glaciation

    Bennett, Kristi R.; Hogg, Ian D.; Adams, Byron J.; Hebert, Paul D.N. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2016)
    We examined levels of genetic variability within and among populations of three Antarctic springtail species (Arthropoda: Collembola) and tested the hypothesis that genetic divergences occur among glacially-isolated habitats. ...
