Record #84119:

Zonality of climate and plant distributions in some Arctic and Antarctic regions / Torstein Engelskjøn.

Title: Zonality of climate and plant distributions in some Arctic and Antarctic regions / Torstein Engelskjøn.
Author(s): Engelskjøn, Torstein.
Date: 1986.
In: Norsk Polarinstitutt. Rapportserie. (1986.), Vol. 30 (1986)
Abstract: Zonal climates are outlined from North Scandinavia to Svalbard and Franz Josef Land and related to distributions of 10 vascular plant species, leading to four Arctic categories: northern, mesic, maritime, and hemi-. Cassiope tetragona and Salix polaris are proposed as markers in this part of Arctic. Antarctic botanical zones are outlined from areas north of Antarctic convergence, Bouvetøya and other maritime tracts, and from coastal oases of Dronning Maud Land to nunataks of adjoining parts of Antarctic slope. Correlations with distributions of one vascular and five cryptogamic species are suggested.
