SCAR Expert Group

The SCAR Expert Group on Birds and Marine Mammals (EG-BAMM) is tasked with providing expert knowledge and research leadership in all matters related to birds and mammals in the Antarctic, in order to support research that will quantify the role of birds and marine mammals in the Antarctic marine and terrestrial ecosystems. We work with other components of SCAR towards a multidisciplinary synthesis of biophysical and biochemical coupling mechanisms in the Antarctic and to help collate and provide information on the status and trends of populations of specific species in the SCAR area of interest based on needs identified by SCAR or by the group. EG-BAMM also contributes to the conservation and management of Antarctic and subantarctic birds and mammals through the appropriate utilisation and interpretation of currently available scientific data.
