Project Summary:
Antarctic and adjacent faunas are extremely vulnerable to global warming. Marine molluscs represent a diverse group with high commercial and ecological significance, under-represented in conservation planning. We will incorporate climate stressors to IUCN global Red List assessments, to provide a global conservation context for marine biodiversity in UKOTs at highest risk from global heating, and new assessment tools that can be applied to all UKOTs worldwide.
