|Antarctic hair grass|
They mainly occur on the South Orkney Islands, the South Shetland Islands and along the western Antarctic Peninsula. A recent warming trend has increased germination, and thus number of seedlings and plants, also extending their range southward to cover larger areas. Reports indicate a twenty-fivefold increase in their number. This species extends south of 56 degrees south latitude.
