Filipe C. Victoria, Margéli P. Albuquerque, Antônio B. Pereira

Abstract


The phytosociology of plant communities in the Admiralty Bay ice-free areas (King George Island, South Shetland Islands, Antarctica) was investigated during the 2003/04 summer seasons. In this study associations among lichens and mosses were found, where the lichen species are dominant in the samples. A total of 10 associations are identified. For each association found in this work, descriptions are given and comments about their ecology and distribution in the study area are made.

Key words: Antartic plants, phytosociology, ecology.
