Annex II of the Protocol, dealing with the conservation of Antarctic flora and fauna was revised in 2009 but has yet to enter into force. Hughes and Convey (2010) examined the current practices to prevent the transfer and introduction of non-indigenous species to the Antarctic. Goldsworthy and Hemmings (2009) reviewed the efficacy of Annex V dealing with area protection and management. One weakness identified by them, that of the need to add Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) to the Antarctic Specially Protected Area (ASPA) network has seen some recent developments.
