The western Antarctic Peninsula region: Summary of environmental and ecological processes

The Palmer LTER Group

Parts I to V of this volume provide overviews and syntheses of the many aspects and processes associated with the terrestrial and marine ecosystems in the western Antarctic Peninsula region. As such, they are a foundation that can be used as a basis for the Palmer Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program as well as a means for highlighting additional research opportunities and questions. This chapter is intended to briefly summarize the salient points in the previous chapters, indicate where linkages occur between systems and processes, and indicate how the Palmer LTER builds upon and extends the understanding of ecological processes in the region west of the Antarctic Peninsula.
