Poleward bound: biological impacts of Southern Hemisphere glaciation

Nikula, Raisa; Ruzzante, Daniel E.; Waters, Jonathan; Fraser, Ceridwen

Description

Postglacial recolonisation patterns are well documented for the Northern Hemisphere biota, but comparable processes in the Southern Hemisphere have only recently been examined. In the largely terrestrial Northern Hemisphere, recession of ice after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) allowed various taxa, including slow-moving terrestrial species, to migrate poleward. By contrast, the Southern Hemisphere polar region is completely ringed by ocean, and recolonisation of Antarctica and the...[Show more]
