A Coastal Seawater Temperature Dataset for Biogeographical Studies: Large Biases between In Situ and Remotely-Sensed Data Sets around the Coast of South Africa
It is suggested that in shallow, inshore marine habitats, temperature is best measured directly in order to arrive at a causal understanding of the determinants of biogeographical patterns.

A TAXONOMIC REVIEW OF THE GENUS ASTEROMORPHA LÜTKEN (ECHINODERMATA: OPHIUROIDEA: EURYALIDAE)
A new combination of AsterosChema capense (Euryalidae: Asteroschematinae) with the genus Asteromorpha is proposed, which includes four species, which are all redescribed.
New or notable records of brittle stars (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea) from South Africa
Ophiuroid research in South Africa has not kept pace with global taxonomic research with the last major taxonomic review of the group being published in 1976. This paper documents all new records of…
Ophiocoma (Ophiurida: Ophiocomidae) species of the east coast of South Africa, including observations of parental care
This study raises the number of Ophiocoma species recorded from the South African coast from four to eight extending the records for the genus southwards to the Eastern Cape. All species are briefly…
Taxonomy, biodiversity and biogeography of the brittle stars (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea) of South Africa
- Jennifer Olbers
The South African Ophiuroidea were last reviewed by Clark and Courtman-Stock in 1976 and the systematics of the group is thus revised in its entirety for the first time in 40 years, raising the total known number of ophiuroid species in the region to 136.
