Evolution and Biodiversity in the Antarctic (EBA)

Database icon

The biodiversity database holds Antarctic and subantarctic flora and fauna in support of the SCAR Life Sciences programme Evolution and Biodiversity in the Antarctic (EBA) for 2006-2013. EBA will explore:

  1. the evolutionary history of Antarctic biota,
  2. how biological diversity in the Antarctic influences ecosystem function, and
  3. how the biota will respond to environmental change.

EBA is the follow on project from the now finished Regional Sensitivity to Climate Change in Antarctic terrestrial and limnetic ecosystems (RiSCC) project. This database will focus on the Terrestrial and Limnetic domains.

The biodiversity database has been endorsed as an official SCAR product.
