Research - 1. What factors regulate SGS ecological structure and function over space and time? 2. How do the factors that regulate ecological structure and function, and the coupling of biotic and abiotic components, vary spatially and temporally within the SGS? 3. What are the biotic and abiotic thresholds that determine the vulnerability of the SGS to changes in the factors influencing ecological structure and function?
