Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) Project 3261.

The objectives of this project are to:

1. Assess temporal variability in stream invertebrates on the sub-Antarctic island, Macquarie Island. This objective is to support their use as indicators of stream health due to climate change, other anthropogenic impacts and natural changes (see below).

2. Measure for the first time ecosystem ... View entire text
