The paper from her PhD work shows how mosses can be used as proxies for water availability in Antarctica. Bramley-Alves, J., Wanek, W., French, K. & Robinson, SA. (2015) Moss δ13C is an accurate proxy for past water environments in polar regions. Global Change Biology 21: 2454–2464 DOI: 10.1111/gcb.12848 is available online or email us for a copy.
The other paper describes how Azorella and associated moss communities are dying on the sub-antarctic Macquarie Island. Jessica spent two summers walking the length of the island documenting the state of these plants and we are really glad to see the hard work has paid off and Jess has another paper under her belt.
