Deep moss banks that have been slowly accumulating over thousands of years provide rare records of biological activity on the Antarctic Peninsula. I will show how we can interpret these palaeoclimate archives to quantify responses to recent rapid climate changes and place them in the context of Holocene fluctuations. Detailed physiological work on contemporary, East Anglian mosses of contrasting life forms facilitates interpretation of the Antarctic records, and also provides a link to the Sphagnum dominated northern peatlands.
