Is the Scotia Sea a centre of Antarctic marine diversification? Some evidence of cryptic speciation in the circum-Antarctic bivalve Lissarca notorcadensis (Arcoidea: Philobryidae)
The bivalve Lissarca notorcadensis is one of the most abundant species in Antarctic waters and has colonised the entire Antarctic shelf and Scotia Sea Islands. Its brooding reproduction, lowExpand

Bait-attending fauna of the Kermadec Trench, SW Pacific Ocean: Evidence for an ecotone across the abyssal–hadal transition zone
The bait-attending fauna of the abyssal–hadal transition zone of the Kermadec Trench, SW Pacific Ocean (4329–7966 m), was investigated using a baited camera and a trap lander. The abyssal stationsExpand

Diversity and distribution of mollusc assemblages on the Victoria Land coast and the Balleny Islands, Ross Sea, Antarctica
In 2004 as part of the joint Latitudinal Gradient Project in the Ross Sea, cruises of RV Tangaroa and RV Italica along the Victoria Land coast and the Balleny Islands collected 142 species of molluscExpand

High intraspecific variability in the diet of a deep-sea nematode: Stable isotope and fatty acid analyses of Deontostoma tridentum on Chatham Rise, Southwest Pacific
Small deep-sea organisms may exhibit a high degree of intraspecific variability in diet due to their ability to exploit a wide range of food sources and patchiness in food availability. TrophicExpand

Mitochondrial DNA (COI) analyses reveal that amphipod diversity is associated with environmental heterogeneity in deep‐sea habitats
The relationship between species diversity and environmental parameters is poorly understood for the mobile macrofauna of deep‐sea habitats due to under‐sampling and subsequent lack of accurateExpand

High genetic diversity within Epimeria georgiana (Amphipoda) from the southern Scotia Arc
DNA barcoding revealed four well-supported clades among amphipod specimens that keyed out to Epimeria georgiana Schellenberg, 1931, three clades with specimens from the southern Scotia Arc and oneExpand

Diversity of Peracarida (Crustacea, Malacostraca) caught in a suprabenthic sampler
The composition of suprabenthic Peracarida from a depth between 1 and 1.33 m above the seafloor was investigated. In order to study the abundance and diversity quantitatively, the samples were takenExpand
