Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) Project 3203
See the link below for public details on this project.

Public Summary
High-order predators rely on the productivity of the Southern Ocean marine ecosystem for their continued survival. Their place in that ecosystem is the result of a long history of evolutionary adaptation to a challenging and changing environment. The objective of this study ... View entire text

Taken from the 2009-2010 Progress Report:
Field work:
Bones were collected from exposed outcrops Landing Beach and Bauer Bay. The collections from Macquarie Island are complete for this project.

It is intended to contact museums around the world to secure samples collected at the island between 1850 and today. These samples will be analysed for isotopes, DNA and pollutants.

Laboratory activity/analysis:
DNA extractions at Griffith University to be completed by the end of the year.
Stable isotope and carbon dating of the bones to commence after July.

Museum specimens sourced throughout the next year.
