Yan Ropert-Coudert has provided a new dataset on tracking data for king penguins, as a contribution from the new SCAR-EGBAMM group. The dataset includes over 100k records from GPS tracking of known-age and sex king penguins from Crozet Archipelago (age data are available upon request from the senior author).
Arrow worms (Phylum Chaetognatha) are abundant planktonic organisms and important predators in many food webs; yet, the classification and evolutionary relationships among chaetognath species remain poorly understood. A seemingly simple body plan is underlain by subtle variation in morphological details, obscuring the affinities of species within the phylum. Many species achieve near global distributions, … Continue reading New dataset: Antarctic Arrow worms
Open-ocean environments provide few obvious barriers to the dispersal of marine organisms. Major currents and/or environmental gradients potentially impede gene flow. One system hypothesized to form an open-ocean dispersal barrier is the Antarctic Polar Front, an area characterized by marked temperature change, deep water, and the high-flow Antarctic Circumpolar current. Despite these potential isolating … Continue reading New dataset: Antarctic Nemertea
A new dataset is available on southern ocean Ostracods. It was prepared by Simone Brandao, with the support of a Total Foundation minigrant.The Southern Ocean Ostracoda database will include all records of Ostracoda except for the Halocypridina, which are edited by Martin Angel and Kasia Blachowiak-Samolyk.
A new dataset is available, including original records on Amphipods from Claude De Broyer team. The data is extracted from the Catalogue of the Gammaridean and Corophiidean Amphipoda (Crustacea) of the Southern Ocean with distribution and ecological data. In: De Broyer C. (Ed.), Census of Antarctic Marine Life, Synopsis of the Amphipoda of the Southern Ocean. … Continue reading New dataset: Antarctic Amphipoda
Gicim includes specimen data from the ichtyology collection from MNHN, Paris. This part of the collection data focuses on southern ocean specimens.
In Antarctic waters, the superfamily Lysianassoidea is one of the most important amphipod groups both in terms of species number and abundance. Dominant members of this superfamily are species of the orchomenid complex, found throughout the Southern Ocean...
Getting ready for the Villefranche Biogeography workshop, 8 new datasets are ready to be tortured: Antarctic Marine Bacteria from Denmark University (51 records) Antarctic Marine Amoebae (7 records) Antarctic Jellyfish (3968 records) Biogeographic distribution of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic Cu... (1498 records) Antarctic and sub-Antarctic Lophogastrida occurrences (43 records) Biogeographic distribution of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic My... … Continue reading 8 new datasets
The only Antarctic review about brachiopods has been done by Forster in 1974. Since about 100 publications dealing with living Antarctic brachiopods have been issued and nearly 50 on fossil Antarctic brachiopods, until 2009. The classification of the Brachiopoda has been basically changed in 1996 and developed in the 6 volumes of the “Treatise” (1997-2007). … Continue reading New Dataset: Biogeographic distribution of the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic brachiopods (living forms)
This dataset was provided by Dhugal Lindsay (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC)). The data is extracted from a paper by Mark C. Benfield (Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences, Louisiana State University) and William M. Graham (Dauphin Island Sea Lab and University of South Alabama). Four individuals of the large scyphozoan jellyfish … Continue reading New Dataset: In situ observations of Stygiomedusa gigantea
