  • This dataset curates over 200 records of known non-native species introductions to Antarctica, where introductions are considered to include inadvertent and deliberate introductions to the environment where the specimen/s were not immediately removed. Each record contains information on occurrence status, location coordinates, observation year, estimated survival time and more. The dataset was compiled by Theme 2 of the SCAR Scientific Research Programme Ant-ICON (Integrated Science to inform Antarctic and Southern Ocean Conservation). This project was supported by NERC core funding to the BAS Environment Office and Biodiversity, Evolution, and Adaptation Team, and by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.
