Article
Full-text available
In recent years, a wide variety of mentorship programmes targeting issues that cannot be addressed through traditional teaching and learning methods alone have been developed. Mentoring plays significant roles in the growth and development of both mentors and men-tees, and the positive impacts of mentoring have been well documented. Mentorship prog...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This document presents a basis for alignment of polar data policies, notably the policies and statements of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON) initiative, the Arctic Spatial Data Infrastructure, and the Southern Ocean Observing Sys...
Article
Full-text available
Although the relationship between species richness and available energy is well established for a range of spatial scales, exploration of the plausible underlying explanations for this relationship is less common. Speciation, extinction, dispersal and environmental filters all play a role. Here we make use of replicated elevational transects and th...

The Southern Ocean is undergoing rapid environmental change, which has impacted its ecosystems and food webs. There is need for ecosystem models that incorporate all levels of the biotic system and consider physical context. Using an end-to-end ecosystem model of the Prince Edward Islands (PEIs), we investigated the importance of the input of ocean...
Article
Full-text available
Animal telemetry is a powerful tool for observing marine animals and the physical environments that they inhabit, from coastal and continental shelf ecosystems to polar seas and open oceans. Satellite-linked biologgers and networks of acoustic receivers allow animals to be reliably monitored over scales of tens of meters to thousands of kilometers,...
Article
Ectotherms may respond to variable environmental conditions by altering their phenotypes. Phenotypic plasticity was initially thought to be beneficial to an organism's physiological fitness but several alternative hypotheses have been proposed with growing empirical support. In this study, we tested the full suite of hypotheses by investigating acc...
Article
The change in species dominance between anchovy and sardine that took place during the 1980s in the southern Benguela has been investigated previously using an Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) model. The results from that model indicated that fishing pressure was unlikely to have been the driver of change. Instead, the findings indicated that changes with...

Full-text available
Polar oceans are poorly monitored despite the important role they play in regulating Earth’s climate system. Marine mammals equipped with biologging devices are now being used to fill the data gaps in these logistically difficult to sample regions. Since 2002, instrumented animals have been generating exceptionally large data sets of oceanographic...

Antarctica and the Southern Ocean form a critical natural laboratory where international scientific investigation can infer the fundamental drivers of the entire earth system and of the near-earth space environment. Advancing our understanding is critical to better comprehend the region’s role in global ocean-atmospheric circulation, ecosystem adap...
Article
Full-text available
Resource subsidies can influence the structure and dynamics of recipient food webs in a wide range of ecosystems through direct and indirect effects. On the sub-Antarctic Prince Edward Islands (PEIs), large populations of top predators import substantial amounts of nutrients from the oceans to the islands. Guano runoff from the islands increases th...
Article
AimDespite their potentially profound consequences, little is known about the impacts of interactions among environmental change drivers on indigenous species. For biological invasions, much theoretical prominence has been given to additive or synergistic interactions with temperature change. However, empirical investigations are sparse. Here, we i...
Article
Despite concerns about the richness of plant invaders on islands, and their likely effects on local systems, impacts of these species seem to be small. However, this may be due to an absence of information on impacts, including changing species occupancy and forecast occupancy, rather than lack of impact per se. Here we use the plant invaders on th...
Article

South Africa has a long track record in Southern Ocean and Antarctic research and has recently invested considerable funds in acquiring new infrastructure for ongoing support of this research. This infrastructure includes a new base at Marion Island and a purpose-built ice capable research vessel, which greatly expand research opportunities. Despit...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding spatial variation in abundance is essential for forecasts of responses to environmental change impacts on diversity and the consequent conservation actions. However, few studies have sought to distinguish the causal basis of abundance structure and range limits. Here we do so for an invasive springtail species, Pogonognathellus flaves...
Article
Full-text available
The biogeography of the South Indian Ocean Province (SIP) biotas has long been controversial. Much of the discussion has been based on interpretation of species distributions, based on morphological or anatomical delimitations. However, molecular phylogenetic approaches elsewhere have recently shown that interpretations based solely on morphologica...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding the mechanisms by which aphids survive low temperature is fundamental in forecasting the risk of pest outbreaks. Aphids are chill susceptible and die at a temperature close to that at which a small exothermal event is produced. This event, which can be identified using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), normally occurs at a high...
Article
The feeding dynamics and predation impact of the hyperiid amphipod, Themisto gaudichaudi, on the zooplankton community in the waters surrounding the Prince Edward Archipelago were investigated at 30 stations in late austral summer (April/May) 1998. Ingestion rates of T. gaudichaudi were estimated using two approaches, the gut fullness index and in...
