Record #51294:

Estimates of lichen growth rates in the maritime Antarctic / D.C. Lindsay.

Title: Estimates of lichen growth rates in the maritime Antarctic / D.C. Lindsay.
Author(s): Lindsay, D. C.
Date: 1973.
In: Arctic and Alpine Research. (1973.), Vol. 5(4) (1973)
Abstract: Using growth rates estimated from lichens growing on introduced (dated) features on Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, the two most recent moraines of Orwell Glacier were dated.
