Alan Austin fonds

  • CA UVICARCH AR006
  • Fonds
  • 1964-1997

The fonds consists of seven series: 1. SIP reports, 2. SIP films and photographs, 3. SIP correspondence and field notes, 4. SIP reference literature, 5. Victoria Phenology Project, 6. Teaching and student material, and 7. Aquatic ecology projects. The Seaweed Inventory Project, in particular, is a valuable, detailed record and baseline survey of a substantial part of the coastline of BC, and the vegetation and biota (thus measurable on a global scale) supported at the time of the surveys done in 1972 and 1974. These data stand as a permanent record against which any coastal changes can be compared and measured. The sedentary, attached nature of coastal biota makes it particularly responsive to, and thus a sensitive indicator of changes in their environment. Forces of change include oil spills, toxic spills, runoff from land developments, marina construction, and natural catastrophic events.
