Permit Number:
Number of people permitted: 7
Permit Period: From:  26 Nov 2018   To:  19 Dec 2018
Purpose: Test the hypothesis of Holarctic origin of target species with posterior dispersal to the south, focusing especially on the “American Pathway”; Understand the importance of the Neotropics on the dispersal processes of bipolar species to Western Antarctica and consequently to Antarctic colonization; Compare the genetic diversity among mosses and lichens with similar distribution pattern; Compare morphological and genetic diversity in bipolar mosses and lichens; Identify, using molecular markers, if they are cryptic species or if speciation process is occurring; Use molecular markers to check if the molecular diversity found among bipolar populations is reflected on its geographic distributions; Increase our understanding of which factors play a major role in dispersal and colonization between Antarctica and South America.
Summary of activities: As the distribution of mosses and lichens in Antarctica are well known, we selected target species in a total of 15 mosses and 20 lichens. The collections are aimed to obtain fresh material for DNA extraction. Up to 10 samples for each population of target species. Each sample will have 5x5 cm. The collections will be done following Yano (1984) and Frahm (2003), it means that the material will be collected by hand or with the help of a small knife and put in paper bags to dry naturally without the use of heaters, dryers or press. After dried, the material will be sent to our laboratories at the Universities (UnB and UFMS).

Permit Period: From:  01 Feb 2019   To:  15 Mar 2019
Purpose: Visits in the area will be done to collect lake and streams sediment and water samples, soil and ice for microbial diversity and ecology studies.
Summary of activities: Glacier melt water – microbial biofilms will be collected in melt water streams associated to Glacier Collins. Sampling will be carried out manually using material prepared under aseptic conditions. It is estimated that a total of 300 g of biofilms will be sampled in different locations along the melt water streams; Soil – samples will be taken manually with sterile spatules, in a 400 m transect from Collins Glacier and in other sites whose characteristics indicate interesting habitats for microbial ecology studies, such as melt water streams. Soils will be sampled in 11 sites in increasing distances from the Collins Glacier border (0 m or subglacial soil, 1 m, 10 m, 50 m, 100 m, 150 m, 200 m, 250 m, 300 m, 350 m, 400 m). Each site will be sampled in triplicates of 250 g of soil (for microbiological analysis), and a fourth replicate of 500 g will be sampled for geochemical analysis. A total amount of about 15 Kg of soil will be sampled in the area; Ice – samples will be collected manually in the border of the Collins Glacier, using an ice pick. Samples will be collected in triplicates in one single site, at the exact same place of the soil transect. The sampling procedure consists of digging a hole with approximate area of 0,5 m x 0,5 m by 0,3 m depth. It is estimated that a total amount of 30 Kg of ice will be collected.

Purpose: The main goal of this project is to learn more about the first human strategies for occupying Antarctica at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries, focusing our attention on the South Shetland Islands from an archaeological point of view. Archaeological investigations in Antarctica are at an early stage. As a consequence, the pieces of evidence gathered are scarce. These circumstances do not allow scholars to fully understand the potential of archaeology for shedding light on the recent history of the continent. This investigation intends to obtain archaeological information on the first human occupations on the South Shetland Islands. Taking this idea into account, we will try to achieve the following specific goals: Produce a critical review of the archaeological works in Antarctica; Reconstruct the daily life of the people who worked in the region at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries; Continue fieldwork activities on the South Shetland Islands.
Summary of activities: During fieldwork in 2019, archaeological surveys will be held in Byers Peninsula, using a laser scan, which will yield a 3D record of the structures identified in previous campaigns.

Summary of activities: Lakes – sediment and water will be collected in lakes of Wanda and Ecology Glaciers. Sediment will be sampled with a corer sampler and water will be collected with a van Dorn sampler. Sampling will be carried out manually; there will be no need of using boats. It is estimated that 20L of water and 10Kg of sediment will be sampled in different lakes from the region; Soil and vegetation – samples will be taken manually with sterile spatulas, in areas near to penguin colonies (ornithogenic soil) and other sites whose characteristics indicate interesting habitats for microbial ecology studies. Vegetation sampling will also be manual, in soil and rocky areas which contain species representative of the local vegetation along ASPA 128 area. An amount of about 10Kg of soil and 50 vegetation fragments will be sampled in the area; Ice – samples will be collected manually in Wanda and Ecology Glaciers, using climbing axe. It is estimated that an amount of 30Kg of ice will be collected in each glacier; Seabirds – faeces samples will be collected in the environment, in small amounts of each type, using spatulas or swabs. Capture of seabirds for research of virus of zoonotic interest will be done with a net and the procedure for each bird will be carried out in approximately 3 minutes. No anaesthetic substances will be used. The species that will be captured are: Penguins: Gentoo (Pygoscelis papua); Adelie (Pygoscelis adeliae); Chinstrap (Pygoscelis antarctica); Skua: Chataracta sp; Kelp Gulls: Larus dominicanus

Purpose: The main goal of this project is to learn more about the first human strategies for occupying Antarctica at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries, focusing our attention on the South Shetland Islands from an archaeological point of view. Archaeological investigations in Antarctica are at an early stage. As a consequence, the pieces of evidence gathered are scarce. These circumstances do not allow scholars to fully understand the potential of archaeology for shedding light on the recent history of the continent. This investigation intends to obtain archaeological information on the first human occupations on the South Shetland Islands. Taking this idea into account, we will try to achieve the following specific goals: Produce a critical review of the archaeological works in Antarctica; Reconstruct the daily life of the people who worked in the region at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries; Continue fieldwork activities on the South Shetland Islands.
Summary of activities: During fieldwork in 2019, archaeological surveys will be held Potter Peninsula to locate archaeological sites.
