[Snow algae at the summit of Mt. Ibuki, Shiga-Prefecture, Japan] / Novomu Takeuchi, Sakie Sumikawa, Kyoko Muto.

Title: [Snow algae at the summit of Mt. Ibuki, Shiga-Prefecture, Japan] / Novomu Takeuchi, Sakie Sumikawa, Kyoko Muto.
Translated title: Snow algae at the summit of Mt. Ibuki, Shiga-Prefecture, Japan.
Author(s): Takeuchi, Novomu.
Sumikawa, Sakie.
Muto, Kyoko.
Date: 2011.
Language: Japanese.
In: Seppyo : Journal of the Japanese Society of Snow and Ice. (2011.), Vol. 73(5) (2011)
Abstract: Presents investigations made in springs of 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2010, in which red or green snow surfaces were not visible, but microscopic analyses revealed that surface snow contained mainly two morphological types of algal cells (Chlorophyta). Both types are most likely to be Chloromonas nivalis. Reports algal volume biomass and chlorophyll a concentration significantly lower than reported for red-coloured snow in Japan or North America. Algae appeared on snow surface at summit in late April, only 1-2 weeks before disappearance of snow patch, even though thawing, which is essential to algal growth, began in mid-March. Suggests that algae remain dormant on soil during summer, autumn and winter.
