Yes, There Is Greenery in Antarctica

I know a lot of people think I am crazy when I tell then that there is plant life in parts of Antarctica. People think that nothing can grow on this icy continent. Well, it just is not true. Some plants have adapted and can grow here. It is kind of limited, but there is most definitely moss and lichens growing in Antarctica, especially on the Peninsula. Here is a good article about on scientist who is researching lichen.
