Pressure of alien organisms on terrestrial ecosystems of Maritime Antarctic.
Languages of publication
Ze względu na geograficzną i historyczną izolację kontynentu antarktycznego odnotowano do tej pory jedynie sporadyczne pojawianie się na nim gatunków obcych. Jednak rosnąca antropopresja i gwałtowne ocieplanie się niektórych rejonów Antarktyki powodują, że ryzyko introdukcji gatunków obcych znacząco rośnie. Wraz z zaopatrzeniem stacji wiele propagul dociera do Antarktyki w dobrej kondycji. Agresywne, plastyczne organizmy, o dużym potencjale adaptacyjnym mogą szybko przystosować się do zmieniających się warunków klimatycznych, rozpoczynając kolonizację ocieplającej się Antarktyki. Wpływ takich organizmów na ekosystemy polarne jest w zasadzie niemożliwy do przewidzenia.
Due to geographic and historical isolation of the Antarctic continent, there are currently very few alien species introduc ed to the terrestrial ecosystems. However, due to increased man-made pressure and amelioration of climate in this region, the threat of the establishment of non-native species will grow markedly. Many diasporas can be quite easily, unintentionally transported in good condition to the Antarctic with research stations suppl ies. Flexible species are characterized by a very wide ecological amplitude, high adaptation capabilities and diverse way s of reproduction. They may thrive under harsh environmental condition s and colonize recipient ecosystem s. The impact of those organisms will be unpredictable.
