Antarctic Coastal Ecology
Entry ID: ACE

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Objectives:

• To assess the structure and functioning of the Antarctic coastal ecosystem and the relationships between marine and terrestrial biota.

• To assess the origin of organic matter and minerals in the Antarctic coastal ecosystem and the pathways of organic matter and minerals between the coastal marine and terrestrial systems.

Purpose: The vegetation structure of coastal vegetation both emerged and submerged is studied. Species diversity, biomass, photosynthesis of key species is recorded.
