A new dataset on Southern Ocean Octopids has been added to our data system. It contains occurrence records for Southern Ocean Octopoda, as provided by Louise Allcock.
This dataset is a compilaton of occurrence data for Cnidaria extracted from the literature by Dhugal Lindsay. You can view them on a map. The data was extracted from the following papers: Pags F. & P. R. Pugh 2002. Fuseudoxid: the elusive sexual stage of the calycophoran siphonophore Crystallophyes amygdalina (Clausophyidae: Crystallophyinae). Acta Zoologica 83(4): … Continue reading New dataset: cnidaria compilation by Dhugal Lindsay (JAMSTEC)
Isopods are an important component of the Antarctic benthos and can be rich across depth and regions. A lack of dispersive larval stages makes them putatively very vulnerable to climate-induced changes and thus potentially an ideal model taxon for monitoring faunal shifts. This data base is designed to collate distribution records of isopod crustaceans across … Continue reading New Southern Ocean Isopods dataset available

Location information derived from ARGOS PTT tracking devices deployed on higher predators since 1990. These have been deployed on wandering albatrosses, grey headed albatrosses, black browed albatrosses, light-mantled sooty albatrosses, southern giant petrels, northern giant petrels, white-chinned petrels, chinstrap penguins, adelie penguins, macaroni penguins, gentoo penguins and Antarctic Fur seals. The majority of deployments have … Continue reading New dataset: British Antarctic Survey Argos satellite tracking data
Huw Griffiths, from the British Antarctic Survey has just released a new version of the Total Bioconstructors dataset, making it up to 13060 records. This great dataset includes data on large sessile habitat-forming organisms such as sponges, corals, bryozoans and hydroids, which play a crucial role in the structure of Antarctic marine communities and enhance … Continue reading Dataset update: Bioconstructors, British Antarctic Survey
