Regional Sensitivity to Climate Change in Antarctic Terrestrial Ecosystems [RiSCC]: the periantarctic region
Entry ID: ASAC_1015

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This project is looking at how subantarctic plants and ecosystems will respond to climate change. Global warming is already causing changes in terrestrial ecosystems, and the effects on terrestrial life are most likely to be greatest around regional boundaries like the Antarctic Polar Front, where the subantarctic islands are located.
