Natural variability and human induced change in Antarctic nearshore marine benthic communities - Parent Metadata Record
Entry ID: ASAC_2201


Summary
Abstract: The natural world is a mosaic of different habitats and biological communities; the tiles of this mosaic may be small but the patterns formed can be measured at many scales from metres to thousands of kilometres. Understanding these patterns is important to protecting biodiversity. We will identify major scales of variability in Antarctic coastal habitats, biological communities and processes that create them. We will also document scales of impacts caused by humans in Antarctica and potential impacts of future climate change driven by key processes (changes in sea-ice). This information will contribute to environmental management to protect Antarctic coastal ecosystems.

This record is the parent record for all metadata records relating to ASAC project 2201. See the child metadata records for access to the data arising from this project.
