Is the Species Flock Concept Operational? The Antarctic Shelf Case
There has been a significant body of literature on species flock definition but not so much about practical means to appraise them. We here apply the five criteria of Eastman and McCune for detectingExpand

Possible effects of global environmental changes on Antarctic benthos: a synthesis across five major taxa
Because of the unique conditions that exist around the Antarctic continent, Southern Ocean (SO) ecosystems are very susceptible to the growing impact of global climate change and other anthropogenicExpand

Could the acid-base status of Antarctic sea urchins indicate a better-than-expected resilience to near-future ocean acidification?
Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration alters the chemistry of the oceans towards more acidic conditions. Polar oceans are particularly affected due to their low temperature, lowExpand

Origin and evolutionary plasticity of the gastric caecum in sea urchins (Echinodermata: Echinoidea)
BackgroundThe digestive tract of many metazoan invertebrates is characterized by the presence of caeca or diverticula that serve secretory and/or absorptive functions. With the development of variousExpand

Genetic Evidence Confirms Polygamous Mating System in a Crustacean Parasite with Multiple Hosts
Mating systems are diverse in animals, notably in crustaceans, but can be inferred from a limited set of parameters. Baeza and Thiel (2007) proposed a model predicting mating systems of symbioticExpand

To see or to smell: the role of vision in host-recognition by an ectoparasitic crab
Crustaceans are associated with a wide diversity of hosts, using both chemical and visual cues to recognize them. The pea crab Dissodactylus primitivus is an ectoparasite of two species of irregularExpand
