The West Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) is one of the most rapidly changing regions in the world, in great part due to anthropogenic climate change. Steep environmental gradients in water temperature, sea ice cover and glacier melting influence are observed, but much is left to document about significance of those shifts for biological communities and e...



Project (1)
In the Southern Ocean, global changes have led to rapid environmental shifts, with consequences for biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. In some regions of Antarctica, such as the West Antarctic Peninsula, where sea ice cover is decreasing in response to global warming, significant changes in primary production, food availability, and energy fluxes to the benthic compartment are being observed, with potential implications for ecological interactions. This project will focus on shallow benthic communities in the Antarctic Peninsula and the Strait of Magellan to understand the impacts of environmental differences on community structure and trophic interactions. This project is structured around two main axes: 1) Do these environmental differences imply variations in feeding habits, trophic interactions and food web structure of these communities? 2) What are the main environmental and ecological factors determining the observed differences?
