Rarefaction and extrapolation with Hill numbers: a study of diversity in the Ross Sea
The Ross Sea can be considered, in a biological sense, one of the better-known areas in Antarctica due to the high number of expeditions engaged since 1899. Hundreds of mollusc species have beenExpand
Distributional records of Antarctic fungi based on strains preserved in the Culture Collection of Fungi from Extreme Environments CCFEE Mycological Section associated with the Italian National
This dataset includes information regarding fungal strains collected during several Antarctic expeditions: the Italian National Antarctic Research program (PNRA) expeditions “X” (1994/1995), “XII”Expand
Benthic biodiversity in the South Orkney Islands Southern Shelf Marine Protected Area
ABSTRACT The South Orkney Islands Southern Shelf (SOISS) Marine Protected Area (MPA) was the first MPA to be designated entirely within the high seas and is managed under the Commission for theExpand
Ross Sea Mollusca from the Latitudinal Gradient Program: R/V Italica 2004 Rauschert dredge samples
This data set represents the first large-scale survey of benthic micro-molluscs for the area and provides important information about the distribution of several species, which have been seldom or never recorded before in the Ross Sea. Expand
Distributional records of Ross Sea (Antarctica) Tanaidacea from museum samples stored in the collections of the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA) and the New Zealand National Institute of Water
Distributional data for Tanaidacea specimens collected during several Antarctic expeditions to the Ross Sea are reported for a total of 2953 individuals belonging to 33 genera and 50 species. Expand
Porifera collection of the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA), with an updated checklist from Terra Nova Bay (Ross Sea)
This new dataset presents occurrence data for Porifera collected in the Ross Sea, mainly in the Terra Nova Bay area, and curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum, and a 3D model of an uncommon species from theRoss Sea is presented. Expand
Diversity, abundance and composition in macrofaunal molluscs from the Ross Sea (Antarctica): results of fine-mesh sampling along a latitudinal gradient
The study of the smaller macrofaunal benthic fraction showed that Antarctic marine research still has far to go to have robust reference baselines to measure possible changes in benthics communities, even in the case of the assumed well-known, well-sampled and well-studied group of Ross Sea shelf molluscs.

Distributional records of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic Ophiuroidea from samples curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA): check-list update of the group in the Terra Nova Bay area (Ross
The distributional records of Ophiuroidea stored at the Italian National Antarctic Museum are presented, corresponding to 1595 individuals that belong to 35 species and 17 genera, whose check-list of species increases from 15 to 18 species. Expand
First record of living Acesta (Mollusca: Bivalvia) from an Antarctic seamount
The genus Acesta H. Adams & A. Adams, 1858 (Fam. Limidae) comprises species mainly occurring in the deep sea on hard substrates or canyon walls (Johnson et al. 2013), where hydrodynamic conditionsExpand
