Out of the freezer: Exposing the vanished forests of Antarctica
Fieldwork in Antarctica.
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:
Antarctica is generally considered an icy desert where no plants more elaborate than lichens and mosses can grow. But was this always the case? Unravelling the history of Antarctica and the evolution of animals and plants on that continent has been a topic of research for scientists for many decades. In the summer of 1994-95, a colleague from the University of Melbourne (Dr Andrew Drinnan) and I undertook an expedition to the remote Prince Charles Mountains in the interior of East Antarctica to search for fossils from some of Antarctica’s ancient lost forests.
