This research focuses on describing and interpreting biocomplexity of terrestrial ecosystems in the Ross Sea region delivering a GIS/biodiversity database model linking biodiversity, landscape and environmental factors in a form that is easily understood and taken up by end users. It will provide improved capacity for New Zealand to meet its current and future obligations in managing Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems in an international community. This is a NZ International Polar Year project.
