Summary
Abstract: In association with the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research, Aleks Terauds (Australian Antarctic Division) and Steven Chown (Stellenbosch University, Monash University from July 2012) have been leading research into biogeographical classification of terrestrial Antarctica. This research culminated in the manuscript 'Conservation biogeography of the Antarctic', full citation:

Terauds, A., ... View entire text

Purpose: The purpose of the dataset is to provide the shapefiles used in, and resulting from, the biogeographic analyses undertaken in Terauds A, Chown SL, Morgan F, Peat H, Watts D, Keys H, Convey P and Bergstrom DM (2012) Conservation biogeography of the Antarctic. In particular, the shapefile representing Antarctic Biogeographic Areas should prove useful to managers and other Antarctic researchers in delineating biologically distinct areas of Antarctica.
