Brief description

The objectives of this project were:

To monitor wind transported insects to Macquarie Island to establish which species can disperse long distances on wind in the Subantarctic and from where they originate in order to predict what successful new introductions could occur and increase understanding of long distance dispersal by insects. (2) Synchronously with the wind trapping to trap ground invertebrates on long term monitoring sites set up in 1990-91 in an attempt to document any changes that might be taking place.

A range of work was completed as part of this project. Some of the aspects were:

Data on isopods - exotic species
Data on amphipods
Wind trap data
Monitoring of tourist areas for exotic invertebrates
Invertebrate Modelling
A mouse exclusion experiment to examine the effects on spider numbers.

Other metadata records which are associated with this project are:

Macquarie Island Baseline Invertebrate Survey 1994
The Invertebrates of Subantarctic Bishop Island
