Chapter 4: Underwater with a Hand Lens: Ecological Sciences and Environmental Ethics to Value Freshwater Biodiversity

24 June, 2023 by Peter Convey

Despite their impressive diversity and ecosystem relevance, insects are undervalued and rarely considered in conservation efforts, except for those that are medically or economically important. In terms of funding and…

Chapter One – The Falkland Islands marine ecosystem: A review of the seasonal dynamics and trophic interactions across the food web

25 May, 2023 by Simon Morley

The Falkland Islands marine environment host a mix of temperate and subantarctic species. This review synthesizes baseline information regarding ontogenetic migration patterns and trophic interactions in relation to oceanographic dynamics…

Non-native species in Antarctic terrestrial environments: how climate change and increasing human activity are compounding the threat of invasion

4 January, 2023 by Kevin Hughes, Peter Convey

Antarctic terrestrial biodiversity is simple compared with other regions of the Earth, with many higher taxonomic groups not represented owing to the continent’s isolation, the severe climatic conditions and the…

Ultramafic mantle xenoliths in the Late Cenozoic Volcanic rocks of the Antarctic Peninsula and Jones Mountains, West Antarctica

1 January, 2022 by Philip Leat

Abundant mantle-derived ultramafic xenoliths occur in Cenozoic (7.7-1.5 Ma) mafic alkaline volcanic rocks along the former active margin of West Antarctica, that extends from the northern Antarctic Peninsula to Jones…

Chapter 17: The future? Big questions about feedbacks between Anthropogenic change in the cryosphere and atmospheric chemistry

1 December, 2021 by Markus Frey

Anthropogenically driven changes in the cryosphere (mainly climate warming, but also land-use changes and increasing industrial and transportation activities) are changing how the cryosphere interacts with the atmosphere, which is,…
