Abstract
Extensive microbiological studies carried out at Vostok Station, Antarctica over the past several years have revealed a complex assemblage of well preserved microbial cells. The Antarctic ice sheet provides an ideal model for the investigation of the types of microbial forms and the state of preservation that may be expected after long term preservation in ice.
