Description:
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. Regional Sensitivity to Climate Change in Antarctic Terrestrial and Limnetic Ecosystems (RiSCC) is an international research program on Antarctic and Peri-Antarctic terrestrial and limnetic (lake - and pond -) organisms and ecosystems. It is sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), a committee of the International Council of Science (ICSU). NOTE - the RiSCC project has now been replaced by the SCAR Life Sciences programme Evolution and Biodiversity in the Antarctic (EBA) for 2006-2013.
