Funding Acknowledgements

Funding of JEF, DJC and the postdoctoral position of A-M.P.T. was derived from the NERC-BAS Antarctic Funding Initiative grant GR3/G0001. All fieldwork to Antarctica was supported by this funding initiative, although specimens from many BAS trips to the region were also analysed. We would like to thank Dr I. Poole and Crispin Day for helping to collect material in 1999, to Rob Scott in 2000, and also to past BAS (FIDS) geologists for their collections of the Cross Valley flora. Dr Richard Hunt is thanked for assistance with leaf architecture analysis, and drawing and photographic techniques. DJC would like to acknowledge that part of this work was supported when he was employed at the British Antarctic Survey and at the Swedish Museum of Natural History. The Swedish Museum of Natural History is thanked for giving assistance and access to the Nordenskjold Collection. Reviewers are acknowledged for helpful comments on the manuscript.
