Antarctic marine biodiversity challenged by global change: the CAML/SCAR-MarBIN benchmark

By Bruno Danis, Angelika Brandt, Julian Gutt, Philippe Koubbi, Paul Rodhouse, Victoria Wadley and Claude De Broyer

Abstract

There is now undisputed evidence that\ud climate change and modifications of\ud the Earth system occurs, at faster rates\ud in the polar regions. Among the many\ud consequences we will be facing, the loss of\ud biodiversity is probably of highest concern.\ud CAML and SCAR-MarBIN are striving to\ud provide the baseline information needed\ud to assess the potential impact of climate\ud change on Antarctic marine biodiversity.\ud Through strong science plans, efficient\ud data management and an unprecedented\ud collaborative research effort within the IPY\ud framework, CAML and SCAR-MarBIN intend\ud to provide to scientists, environmental\ud managers and decision-makers a sound\ud benchmark against which future changes\ud can reliably be assessed. This paper gives a\ud brief description of the project’s synergies
