The fossil material will help scientists study floral changes during the Jurassic in the Transantarctic Mountains of Antarctica. “This research is important in understanding what climate and environment was like at the poles during one of Earth’s past greenhouse climates and how plants responded to both climate changes and instantaneous disruptions through the rise of volcanoes,” said Rudy Serbet, collection manager of paleobotany at KU Biodiversity Institute and a team leader for the trip.

The decay fungi found are well adapted to polar conditions and appear to be indigenous to Antarctica. Further study has shown that the fungi found in the wood were also the ones most commonly found in Antarctic soils where they have important roles as decomposer and recycling organisms in the Antarctic ecosystem. ... In addition, our investigations have expanded to include research at other historic wooden structures located in different areas of Antarctic that are in peril of being lost.

Poor outlook for biodiversity in Antarctica, study finds
An interdisciplinary group of researchers compared Antarctic biodiversity and its management with global trends to determine the region’s outlook is more similar to the rest of the world than previously believed. ... “Overall, the biodiversity and conservation management outlook for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean is no different to that for the rest of the planet,” Professor Chown said.

REVIEWS | The spatial structure of Antarctic biodiversity
Antarctica contains some of the strongest environmental gradients on the planet and therefore provides an ideal study ground to test hypotheses on the relevance of environmental variability for biodiversity. To answer the pivotal question, ‘‘How does spatial variation in physical and biological environmental properties across the Antarctic drive biodiversity?’’ we have synthesized current knowledge on environmental variability across terrestrial, freshwater...

The Loss of Biodiversity from Human Activity
Scientists have tracked the loss of biodiversity on Earth for decades. Studies from physical, geological, and biological data show that Earth has had declines in populations and even mass extinctions in the past. So, why are we worried? At first, much of the species loss in the 20th century was attributed to the “regular” changes in biodiversity that occur in living ecosystems. Simply put, environments change.

Despite not being extensive by any comparative means with levels of biodiversity throughout the rest of the world, this is some of the most threatened wildlife on the planet. There are several measures in place to ensure their protection; the predominant one is called the Madrid Protocol. Adopted in 1991, the system is designed to organize and implement efforts to protect the environment and biodiversity on Antarctica.

Antarctica’s Wildlife in a Changing Climate
Despite being one of the coldest, most inhospitable places on Earth, Antarctica hosts a wealth of biodiversity, and its remoteness and extreme climate have lent a certain amount of protection to the many species that call the continent and its surrounding waters home. The Antarctic has not been immune to human influences, however, and its fauna is suffering from a range of human impacts, both past and present.

About Antarctica: Seals
Although there are 35 species of seals, only six types live in Antarctica: Antarctic Fur Seals, Crabeater Seals, Leopard Seals, Ross Seals, and Weddell Seals. However, these six species make up the majority of the world's seal population. With no natural land predators, such as polar bears or man, Antarctic seals behave much differently than northern seals--showing little fear of man.

We will then consider one measure used to compare diversity among communities, Jaccard?s similarity index.

Biodiversity
The biodiversity in different communities has been severely affected by human activities. A community is said to have high species diversity if it has many species present in approximately equally abundant numbers. If it is composed of only a few species or if only a few species are abundant, then the biodiversity is considered to be low.

This network was a 5 year ARC funded program (2005-2010) aimed to bring together specialists with a wide range of research interests, to pool their ideas and expertise to allow us to detemine how to best describe Australia's current biodiversity and the history leading up to this. Our geographical limit is the Australian continent, and includes marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments with a strong focus on using the past to explain the present.

Why Measure Biodiversity?
Biodiversity is a measure that combines richness and evenness across species. It is often measured because high biodiversity is perceived a synonymous with ecosystem health. In general diverse communities are believed to have increased stability, increased productivity, and resistance to invasion and other disturbances. Diverse habitats with a variety of plants can have benefits such as

Biodiversity Conservation in Local Planning
We found that biodiversity conservation was seldom a major consideration in these departments. Staff time was mainly devoted to development mandates and little time was spent on biodiversity conservation. Regulations requiring conservation actions that might benefit biodiversity were uncommon, with the exception of rules governing water quality in all 3 regions and the protection of threatened and endangered species in the Seattle region.

Biodiversity
The concept of biological diversity, or biodiversity, often focuses on the material impacts of species loss and on quantitative measures, such as the variety of species and number of individuals of a species in a given area. Enlarging the discourse to critically engage such qualita-tive values as morals, aesthetics, and symbolism, and to address social injustices, is essential for slowing the loss of biodiversity.

Quantifying Stream Biodiversity
Quantifying Stream Biodiversity. Part 1: Background. It is common to hear ecologists talking about biodiversity, particularly in terms of conservation biology. It is one of those terms that is used a lot, and is considered to refer to something important, yet, rarely is it clear exactly what is being discussed. In fact, ‘biodiversity’ can refer to many things, and has many specific definitions. The most common definition of biodiversity refers to the number of different species in a given area or species diversity.

How do trade, poverty and climate policies affect biodiversity?
The impacts of these policy interventions on biodiversity and economic performance are assessed.

Every year, people go to Antarctica during their summer months (December-­?February) to conduct research. These people fly into Antarctica, must be transported to the research station in Antarctica (McMurdo Station) and, eventually, must be transported back to the airport so they can fly home. All of this must be done in a way that is fuel efficient to lower costs, and time efficient to reduce the hours wasted in transport.
