All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).

Description

The atlas shows the known distribution and abundance of each vascular species on Macquarie Island immediately prior to the commencement of control measures against rabbits in 1978. It gives a baseline against which changes in the vegetation can be monitored. The effects of the introduced vertebrates on the vegetation are discussed. Additional data are given on the habitat, gregarious performance and phenology of some species.
