Influence of islands size on invertebrate diversity in Svalbard Archipelago

According to islands biogeography theory, size of island is one of the most important factor influencing on species diversity. Studies on the diversity and distribution patterns of all biota are becoming increasingly important in ecological studies, due to human activities and climate changing. These two factors, are the main reasons which impact p

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

According to islands biogeography theory, size of island is one of the most important factor influencing on species diversity. Studies on the diversity and distribution patterns of all biota are becoming increasingly important in ecological studies, due to human activities and climate changing. These two factors, are the main reasons which impact perturbations of animal communities. Svalbard Archipelago is one of the couple pristine areas in Europe, where the climate changes are the most visible. Thus, due to geographical location of Svalbard Archipelago, it is the best place to advanced biodiversity studies and changes caused by humans. It is still very little known about meiofauna inhabiting mosses, lichens, soil or water sediments on Svalbard. The aim of this study is to indicate relationships between islands size and the species richness. Moreover, this project will allow us to deepen our knowledge on the small invertebrates (Tardigrada, Rotifera, Acari, Gastrotricha etc.) inhabiting terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems on Svalbard Archipelago. Finally, the results of these studies will give us a good bases for future studies on the influence of the climate changes on the biodiversity.
