Abstract

Of the French islands in the Southern Indian Ocean, Archipel Crozet and Iles Kerguelen are considered sub-Antarctic, and Ile Amsterdam and Ile Saint-Paul temperate. All have endemic species amongst their biota. The Terres Australes et Antarctiques Franyaises (TAAF) is responsible for sovereignty of these islands, the French Polar Institute (IPEV) is the central agency for research, and the Committee for the Polar Environment (CEP) provides advice on environmental protection and management issues. In 2006 all of the islands gained the status of Nature Reserve, and a management plan is expected to be in place within three years, providing greater protection for the environment and biota.
