The Southern Ocean is of unique ecological, biogeographic and political interest, as noted by your Editorial 'The way ahead for polar science' (Nature 457, 1057; 2009). Given the rate and potential catastrophic impact of global change on the Antarctic marine ecosystem, we agree that it is vital to have a mechanism for the exchange of relevant scientific information. Information about Antarctic marine biodiversity has to be widely published, instantly accessible and thoroughly checked, in order to enable timely, science-based management.
