Diatom Flora Falkland Islands

Locations of where water has been sampled to collect diatoms. The project aims to provide an overview of the diversity and distribution of freshwater diatoms in the Falkland Islands. A checklist of common species, directory of collections, and newly prepared images and descriptions of selected species and genera will facilitate further study by students and professionals alike. The flora will be compared with those from other South Atlantic and (sub-) Antarctic locations. Shackleton funded project.
