Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 1313
See the link below for public details on this project.
This research will monitor the effect of climate change on bryophyte communities in the Windmill Islands region of Antarctica through repeated surveys of permanent vegetation transects. This will help us to predict future changes in bryophyte communities with changing climate, and to ... anticipate how biodiversity will be affected by global climate change.
Data from this project has been subsumed into State of the Environment indicator 72 - Windmill Islands terrestrial vegetation dynamics. See the link below for further details. In other words, data that are available for download from this metadata record are also available for download from the metadata record for State of the Environment indicator 72.
A PDF document is also available for download which contains comparative images of the study sites in 2003 and 2008.
