Summary
Abstract: Data were collected on three sites, see under Purpose.

For Falklands Islands there are observations and countings of species, and data on soil respiration (2004, 2005).

For all three sites climate data were collected.
Anchorage Island: 2004 - 2008; temperature; soil moisture; relative humidity.
Falkland Islands: 2003 - 2009; temperature; soil moisture; relative humidity and AWS data(relative humidity, air temperature, snow height, wind speed, wind direction, pyranometer).
Signy Island: 2003 - 2007; temperature; soil moisture; relative humidity.

Purpose: The Netherlands Institute of Ecology, Unit for Polar Ecology, in collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, Department of Systems Ecology, and the British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK, executes research on the effects of climate change on the terrestrial ecosystems of the polar regions, with a focus on Antarctic Terrestrial Ecosystems. In 2003, three field sites were established ... View entire text
