Redescription of the deep-sea colonial ascidian Synoicum molle (Herdman, 1886): first record since its original finding during the Challenger Expedition
TLDR
The colonial ascidian Synoicum molle (Herdman, 1886) was recorded for the first time after its original description, and 7 colonies of S. molle were collected few km from the type locality, allowing to perform a complete morphological description of this species. Expand
Hidden diversity in Antarctica: Molecular and morphological evidence of two different species within one of the most conspicuous ascidian species
TLDR
The genetic variation within Cnemidocarpa verrucosa sensu lato, one of the most widely distributed abundant and studied ascidian species in Antarctica, is studied to give new insights into patterns of differentiation between closely related species that are distributed in sympatry. Expand
Ascidian distribution provides new insights to help define the biogeographic provinces in the South American Region
TLDR
The ascidian fauna of this region is assessed for the first time to determine if the distribution of benthic sessile filter feeders corresponds to these biogeographic provinces and proposes a separation of the South American Region into three Provinces: SCH, TDF, and SAR/MAI. Expand
The ecological role of brachiopods in the Namuncurá MPA/Burdwood Bank, off southern South America
TLDR
It is interpreted that brachiopods from the Namuncurá MPA/Burdwood Bank appear to play an important role in the biotic and trophic interactions of benthic Subantarctic marine fauna, whether acting as substrates, refuges, or food. Expand
Not as clear as expected: what genetic data tell about Southern Hemisphere corellids (Ascidiacea: Phlebobranchia)
ABSTRACT The morphology of corellids (Ascidiacea) has led to numerous misidentifications and wrong taxonomic decisions over the last century. Paradoxically, the morphology has also enabled newExpand
Hidden diversity in Antarctica: molecular and morphological evidence of two different species within one of the most conspicuous ascidian species
TLDR
The genetic variation within Cnemidocarpa verrucosa sensu lato, one of the most widely distributed abundant and studied ascidian species in Antarctica, is studied to give new insights to patterns of differentiation between closely related species that are distributed in sympatry. Expand
Deep-sea ascidians (Chordata, Tunicata) from the SW Atlantic: species richness with descriptions of two new species.
The understudied deep-sea benthic communities from the Southwestern Atlantic continental slope (200 m-3000 m depth) were sampled on August 2012 in an area located around 38°S that included the MarExpand
A new record of Ascidiella scabra (Müller, 1776) (Ascidiacea, Phlebobranchia) in the southwestern Atlantic
TLDR
The previously known distribution of this species was restricted to its native area (Mediterranean Sea and northeastern Atlantic); its presence in the southwestern Atlantic may have been masked in the past by the occurrence of its congener Ascidiella aspersa. Expand
Ascidiacea (Chordata, Tunicata) from Uruguay (SW Atlantic): Checklist and zoogeographic considerations
TLDR
This research extends beyond the natural history of Uruguay into the social and economic history of the city and its people, using examples from the 20th Century as well as from modern times. Expand
[Chlordesmethyldiazepam as an anesthesia-inducing agent: time of loss of consciousness. Statistical analysis in man].
TLDR
It is concluded that the reflex times to spontaneous closing of the eyes and to disappearance of the palpebral reflex are not significantly different in both groups. Expand
