Abstract: Taken from the abstract of the referenced publication:

The relevance, power and application of biologically oriented climate change research is maximised when studies are coupled to climate change scenarios. This study constructs a climate change scenario with a high spatio-temporal resolution for surface air temperature on east facing coastal slopes of Macquarie Island. Fifty years of surface ...
