Abstract:
The objective of this study is to analyze the relationship between patterns in distribution of bryophytes and protists, species composition of species assemblages comprising these groups in the sub-Antarctic biome, and the environmental variables, especially climate, that regulate these patterns. Using a combination of latitudinal and altitudinal gradients, the different aspects of this scientific problem will be investigated.
