This highly illustrated book is a compendium of results from the first scientific expedition to Heard Island in 15 years, augmented by a description of the expedition itself: the motivations, goals, plans, activities during the 3-week stay on the island, and post-expedition activities. It stands as an important description of this extremely remote site that is changing rapidly as a result of climate change. Heard Island is a World Heritage Site, but it has been about 15 years since the last major investigation of this rapidly changing island. There are currently no future planned extensive investigations of the site; hence this monograph will be an important historical link between the past observations and presumed eventual futures ones.
