Record #186009:

Diversity and biogeography of the Antarctic flora / Helen J. Peat, Andrew Clarke, Peter Convey.

Title: Diversity and biogeography of the Antarctic flora / Helen J. Peat, Andrew Clarke, Peter Convey.
Author(s): Peat, Helen J.
Clarke, Andrew.
Convey, Peter.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Oxford: Blackwell Publishing
Abstract: To establish how well terrestrial flora of Antarctica has been sampled and described, and to determine major patterns in diversity and biogeography, plant occurrence data were collated from herbarium specimens and literature records, and assembled into Antarctic Plant Database. Results indicate that Antarctic flora has been reasonably well sampled, though certain areas require further floristic surveys. Diversity gradient exists along Antarctic Peninsula, with fewer species (but not fewer higher taxa) at higher latitudes. Multi-dimensional scaling ordination suggests three major floral provinces: northern maritime, southern maritime, and continental, with eastern Antarctic Peninsula flora more similar to flora of southern Antarctic Peninsula than to continental flora with which it has traditionally been linked. Patterns of endemism suggest that proportion of lichen flora may have ancient vicarian distribution, while most bryophytes are more recent colonists.
