The ecology of snow and ice environments / Johanna Laybourn-Parry, Martyn Tranter, Andrew J. Hodson.

Title: The ecology of snow and ice environments / Johanna Laybourn-Parry, Martyn Tranter, Andrew J. Hodson.
Author(s): Laybourn-Parry, Johanna.
Tranter, Martyn.
Hodson, Andrew J.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Oxford: Oxford University Press
Abstract: Covers range of cryospheric environments excluding permafrost, describing ecosystems, their physical and chemical conditions and the nature and activity of organisms that have colonized them, and embedding issue of climate change within each chapter. Introduces ice environments and their biology before covering: snow; ice surfaces (inc. ice shelves and ice shelf lakes, glaciers and ice sheets); sea and lake ice; subglacial environments (inc. Blood Falls at Taylor Glacier terminus, Antarctic subglacial lakes, and Lake Vida); astrobiology (inc. Mars, Europa, Enceladus, and Titan, and weaknesses of terrestrial analogues for extraterrestrial cryosphere environments); and future research directions and developing technologies.
