Project goals
The goal of this project is to retrieve data that exists in the gray literature on microalgae collected by Polish expeditions to Hornsund (77˚N, Svalbard) and organize them into GIS user friendly maps illustrated with photos of all species

Interactive maps illustrating macrophyte distribution were produced and posted to a seaweed website.  There, maps show the distribution of species found in Hornsund and are accompanied by illustrations, photos and brief descriptions of distinguishing characters of the species.
