Antarktis Online ist eine private Homepage, die u.a. umfangreiche Informationen zur Fauna und Flora sowie zum Gesamt-Ökosystem der Antarktis bereithält. Zielgruppe sind laut Autor Personen mit Interesse an Geographie (Erdkunde), Tierwelt, Naturschutz, Stationen und Logistik etc. in der Antarktis sowie Polarphilatelisten - für letztere dürften die dargestellten, großformatigen Briefmarkenmotive der Tier- und Pflanzenwelt interessant sein.

Understanding both the climate and the functioning of the earth as a system is one of the largest challenges of our time. In this context, polar regions play a pivotal role. Melting ice caps at the poles will cause sea levels to rise and, consequently, will make many coastal areas uninhabitable. Thawing of permafrost regions will release enormous quantities of the greenhouse gas methane. Hence, what happens to the polar regions has a direct effect on our lives. In the past, three large-scale international ... [Information of the supplier, modified]

This site is dedicated to zooplankton of the Arctic ocean and adjacent seas. This is a diverse group of animals, which includes over 300 species and 9 phyla: cnidarians, ctenophores, crustaceans, molluscs, chaetognaths, rotifers, annelids, nemertines and chordates (i.e. tunicates). This project is done with the support of the Encyclopedia of Life Rubenstein fellows program and in partnership with the Arctic Ocean Diversity project. [Information of the supplier]

What follows is our contribution to a unified list of accepted names for arctic vascular plants. This list is annotated to highlight and explain taxonomic problems and to make clear our approach to taxonomic solutions or, in the absence of solutions, to the disagreements. We realize that as you read this, the Checklist is already in need of modification as new data are being published at a rapid rate. It will always be a work in progress. Our plan is that this Version 1.0 will become 1.1, 1.2, and ... [Information of the supplier]

Polychaeta of the Southern Ocean LifeDesk records the biodiversity and taxonomy of Antarctic and Subantarctic polychaetes (Annelida: Polychaeta). The Southern Ocean encircling Antarctica hosts a diverse polychaete fauna. The first benthic samples of polychaetes were taken on the voyage of H.M.S. Erebus & Terror, under the command of Captain Sir James Clark Ross. Ross reached the sea that bears his name in 1841. Many expeditions from many nations have visited Antarctic seas since, and over 700 named ... [Information of the supplier]

The Toolik-Arctic Geobotanical Atlas (TAGA) is a web-based multi-scale collection of geobotanical maps and related material. It includes maps at seven different scales, from 1-m2 plots to the entire Arctic. The TAGA focuses on research sites at the Toolik Field Station and Imnavait Creek, Alaska, but also covers the Kuparuk River Basin, northern Alaska, Arctic Alaska, and the Circumpolar Arctic. Diverse geobotanical themes include geology, topography landforms, surficial geomorphology, soils, and ... [Information of the supplier]
