Abstract

The Pacific is vast and holds incredible biological, geological, social and cultural diversity. While its sheer size, diversity, and the remoteness of some areas mean that unique species and phenomena still await scientific discovery, these same traits mean that these species or phenomena may be incredibly difficult to observe. The Pacific is also dynamic with fast paced social, economic and environmental change, and we all recognise that some changes are placing the region’s biodiversity under increasing pressure. The cryptic nature of some species and the rapid pace of change also mean that some conservation issues may remain hidden, and documentation may lag behind impact.
