A bacterial and microeukaryotic biodiversity study, using pyrosequencing analysis on a 454 GS FLX+ platform of partial SSU rRNA genes in terrestrial and aquatic habitats of the Sør Rondane Mountains, including soils, on mosses, endolithic communities, cryoconite holes and supraglacial and subglacial meltwater lenses.

|Funding||This work was supported by the Belgian Federal Science Pol- icy (BelSPO) projects ANTAR-IMPACT (Inventory and evaluation of the environmental impact of the Antarctic research station ‘Princes Elizabeth’) [SD/BA/853], BELDIVA (Belgian Microbial diversity project in Antarctica) [EA/XX/05] and CCAMBIO (Climate Change Antarctic Microbial Biodiversity) [SD/BA/03] and Special Research Fund BOF-UGent [grant 0J28410]. The InBev-Baillet La- tour Fund provided additional funding for eld work through the DELAQUA (Deglaciation, ice-sheet thickness and climate change in Dronning Maud Land during the late Quaternary) project. DO was funded by the Institute for Science and Technology in Flan- ders, M-JM and ZN were funded by the FRIA (Fonds pour la for- mation a` la Recherche dans l’Industrie et dans l’Agriculture) and FRS-FNRS (Fund for Scienti c Research) [FRFC 2.4570.09], re- spectively.
