Using indigenous terrestrial micro-invertebrates to assess environmental impacts of soil pollution in Antarctica
Past waste disposal practices and current human activities in Antarctica have resulted in a number of contaminated and biologically degraded sites. To assess, mitigate and remediate these sites an understanding of how native organisms respond to contamination is required. Terrestrial micro-invertebrates play key roles in ecosystem processes (e.g. nutrient cycling) but little is known about the response of Antarctic species …
