EBA Implementation Plan 2005

Evolution and Biodiversity in the Antarctic: the Response of Life to Change (EBA)
Implementation Plan

Proposed Scientific Research Programme, 1 January 2006 to 31 December 2013


The structure of this programme will be based around a series of five major unifying key questions that are addressed across the realms of terrestrial, limnetic and marine environments. These will form the Work Packages of the programme which will operate along the lines of a matrix of the key questions vs selected environments.


  • To understand the evolution and diversity of life in the Antarctic.
  • To determine how these have influenced the properties and dynamics of present Antarctic ecosystems and the Southern Ocean system.
  • To make predictions on how organisms and communities are responding and will respond to current and future environmental change.
