Michael Stoddart describes Australia's involvement in the census of Antarctic marine life and what the census hopes to achieve. The census is designed to allow more accurate monitoring of the oceans which are thought to be changing quickly. The data may also help confirm whether the oceans of Antarctica are a biological hotspot, an area from where species are thought to evolve.
