Title: Antarctic nonmarine aquatic ecosystems as global change sensors
Description:
Abstract:
In English: This project is aimed to achieve a higher knowledge of the limnetic systems in Polar latitudes. Particularly, it promotes the accurate description the Byers Peninsula (Livingston Island), considered one of the most important freshwater zones in the Maritime Antarctica, as well as Deception Island. This project is related to an international Polar Latitudinal Gradient aimed at understanding the effects of the environmental variables related with latitude (temperature and radiation) on the biodiversity of the freshwater ecosystems, and also modelling the effects of the Global Climate Change on these kind of ecosystems. This proposal involves scientists from different institutions with extensive expertise on the organisms that will be found in these ecosystems. Moreover, this proposal is closely linked with other groups from overseas, this fact will allow an exchange, both of scientists and data collected from the different ecosystems, representing an evident benefit in the production and validation of models. En Espanol: El presente proyecto pretende aumentar el conocimiento de los ecosistemas limneticos en las zonas polares. En particular se espera describir con precision la Peninsula Byers (Isla Livingston) una de las zonas de ecosistemas dulceacuicolas mas importantes de la Antartida Maritima, asi como Isla Decepcion. Este proyecto a su vez participa de un gradiente latitudinal polar en cooperacion con otros programas polares internacionales con doble objetivo: por un lado estudiar las variaciones en biodiversidad en estos ecosistemas acuaticos, lo que permitira entender como las variaciones ambientales asociadas a la latitud (radiacion y temperatura) afectan a la diversidad biologica; y por otro lado pretende pronosticar las variaciones ecologicas que experimentaran los ecosistemas polares en un evento de cambio climatico global. El estudio aqui propuesto incorpora especialistas, procedentes de distintos centros de investigacion, en los distintos aspectos que se investigaran referente s a los ecosistemas acuaticos y cuenta con una importante componente internacional que permitira un intercambio de investigadores y de datos obtenidos en los distintos ecosistemas polares investigados, con sus evidentes beneficios a la hora de produccion de modelos.
