The research undertaken under the framework of the LGP can be divided into three categories:

Marine including research into

  • Latitudinal gene drift in notothenioid fish species
  • Lipid metabolism and adaptation in Antarctic fish
  • Latitudinal patterns in the abundance of Ross Sea meroplankton
  • Antarctic sea ice, algal productivity and global climate change
  • Antarctic aquatic coastal ecosystems
  • Structure and dynamics of benthic communities
  • Population structure of echinoderm and mollusc communities
  • Reproductive ecology and its consequence on population isolation

Terrestrial including research into

  • Environmental protection of ice-free regions of Antarctica
  • Soil biodiversity and response to climate change: a regional comparison of Cape Hallett and Taylor Valley
  • The influence of climate-related environmental processes on inland Antarctic aquatic ecosystems
  • Evolution and dispersal of algae along a latitudinal gradient
  • Biodiversity and performance of lichens and mosses
  • Terrestrial Antarctic Biocomplexity Survey (nzTABS)
  • Biology of Antarctic springtails
  • Vegetation communities for the monitoring of environmental conditions and climate change effects

Climate including research into

  • Climate variability along the Victoria Land Coast - NZ ITASE
  • Soil biodiversity and response to climate change: a regional comparison of Cape Hallett and Taylor Valley
  • Results from Automatic Weather Stations (AWS)
