Effect of Global Change on the Primary Production of Antarctic coastal Ecosystems
Entry ID: ASAC_2518

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2518
See the link below for public details on this project.

Global climate change will lead to a reduction in the duration and thickness of sea ice in coastal areas. We will determine whether this will lead to a decrease in primary production and food value to higher predators.

Project objectives:
Our primary objective is to determine what effect will ... View entire text
