Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(B))
Project Year: 2006 - 2009    Investigator(s): Satoshi IMURA
Monitoring system of limnological data on physical and chemical characteristics of lake water was established to understand the long-term change of Antarctic lake environment. Biodiversity on many groups of bacteria, cyanobacteria, algae, mosses w...
Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C))
Project Year: 2000 - 2003    Investigator(s): Satoshi IMURA
Growth environment, geohistory, morphological diversity, and molecular systematics were investigated on mosses in Syowa station area, Antarctica, especially on aquatic mosses at the bottom of lakes.Water temperature at the lake bottom was +7℃ in a...
Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C))
Project Year: 1997 - 1999    Investigator(s): Sakae KUDOH - Satoshi IMURA
Ice algae and diatoms perform highly efficient photosynthesis, in spite of these very severe environments. We investigated how their light-harvesting systems or photosystems acclimate to very low irradiance to achieve efficient photosynthesis. The...
