There are five species in the genus Ditrichum Hampe in the Antarctic: D. heteromallum (Hedw. D. austrogeorgicum (Card. Seppelt is excluded from the moss flora of Antarctica since information on its occurrence was based upon misidentification of the specimens. Blindia maxwellii Vitt from Campbell Island is briefly assessed and it is shown that it correctly belongs within Ditrichum as D. maxwellii (Vitt) Ochyra and Lewis-Smith.

R Ochyra, R I Lewis-Smith, H Bednarek-Ochyra. Following a pilot study in 2000, long-term monitoring of vegetation communities along moisture gradients at two sites commenced in 2003 using three complementary sampling regimes; turf water content, digitally determined broad-scale percent cover of vegetation and finer scale relative abundance of species.

This Flora provides the first comprehensive description, with keys, of all known species and varieties of moss in the Antarctic biome

Illustrated Moss Flora of Antarctica Ryszard Ochyra, Ronald Lewis-Smith, Halina Bednare Cambridge Academ 9780521814027 : Mosses are a major component of the vegetation in ice-free coastal regi. This Flora provides the first comprehensive description, with keys, of all known species and varieties of moss in the Antarctic biome. It has involved microscopic examination of around 10,000 specimens from Antarctica and, for comparison, from other continents. All species are illustrated by detailed line drawings, alongside information about their reproductive status, ecology, and distribution.

Ryszard Ochyra, Halina Bednarek-Ochyra, Ronald Lewis-Smith. Mosses are a major component of the vegetation in ice-free coastal regions of Antarctica. They play an important role in the colonisation of ice-free terrain, accumulation of organic matter, release of organic exudates, and also provide a food and habitat resource for invertebrates. They serve as model organisms for physiological experiments designed to elucidate problems of plant cold tolerance and survival mechanisms and for monitoring biological responses to climate change

Mosses are a major component of the vegetation in ice-free coastal regions of Antarctica. They play an important role in the colonisation of ice-free terrain, accumulation of organic matter, release of organic exudates, and also provide a food and habitat resource for invertebrates. They serve as model organisms for physiological experiments designed to elucidate problems of plant cold tolerance and survival mechanisms and for monitoring biological responses to climate change. This Flora provides the first comprehensive description, with keys, of all known species and varieties of moss in the Antarctic biome. It has involved microscopic examination of around 10,000 specimens from Antarctica and, for comparison, from other continents. All species are illustrated by detailed line drawings, alongside information about their reproductive status, ecology, and distribution. This is an invaluable resource for bryologists worldwide, as well as to Antarctic botanists and other terrestrial biologists.
