Predicting biocomplexity in Dry Valley ecosystems

This research focuses on describing and interpreting biocomplexity of terrestrial ecosystems in the Ross Dependency 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.
