High sympagic metazoan abundance in platelet layers at Drescher Inlet, Weddell Sea, Antarctica
The finding of a profuse meiofauna in platelet layers may explain enigmatic concentrations of ammonium and phosphate commonly detected there and indicate competitive exclusion among the three dominant species. Expand
New phylogenetic aspects of the cristacoxidae huys (Copepoda, Harpacticoida), including the description of a new genus from the Magellan Region
Une nouvelle espece d'Harpacticoide du versant continental de Patagonie (Chili) est decrite. La presence des cristae sur la coxa du P1 de Laophontisochra maryamae gen. et sp.n. signale qu'elleExpand
Description of two new species of Bodinia, a new genus incertae sedis in Argestidae Por, 1986 (Copepoda, Harpacticoida), with reflections on argestid colonization of the Great Meteor Seamount plateau
The question is discussed how members of Argestidae, previously seen as a deep-sea taxon, may have colonized the shallow-water habitat of the Great Meteor Seamount plateau. Expand
Polyascophorus, a new genus of Ancorabolidae (Crustacea, Copepoda), including the description of two new species and the re-allocation of Ceratonotus gorbunovi
Deux especes nouvelles de Copepodes Harpacticoides sont decrites. L'une provient de la Mer de Barents (Arctique), l'autre de la Mer de Weddell (Antarctique). Polyascophorus martinezi gen. et sp. n.Expand
Sublittoral and bathyal Harpacticoida (Crustacea, Copepoda) of the Magellan region. Composition, distribution and species diversity of selected major taxa
Similarity analyses applying non-metrical multidimensional scaling, as well as diversity analyses using the rarefaction method, suggest that the observed differences in distribution and diversity patterns are due to small-scale, local conditions, which may overlay possible large-scale ones. Expand
Description of four new species of Mesocletodes Sars, 1909 (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Argestidae) and redescription of Mesocletodes robustus Por, 1965 from the South Atlantic, including remarks on the
Four new species belonging to the Mesocletodes abyssicola-group (Harpacticoida, Argestidae) which includes ten species so far are described, including four new species bear cuticular processes on the cephalothorax and/or telson, which are supposed to be of high phylogenetic value. Expand
The paramesochrid fauna of the Great Meteor Seamount (Northeast Atlantic) including the description of a new species of Scottopsyllus (Intermedopsyllus) Kunz (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Paramesochridae)
Of the 28 paramesochrid species determined from the GMS, 26 are new to science; the vast majority were found on the plateau; only two species were detected in the deep-sea stations. Expand
Argestes angolaensis sp. nov. (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Argestidae) from the Angola Basin (Southeast Atlantic), and the phylogenetic characterization of the taxon Argestes Sars, including the
This investigation, concentrating on the systematic status of Argestes and first remarks on its relationships to Parargestes Lang, is the first in a series dedicated to the phylogeny of Argesidae Por, 1986. Expand
New species of Echinoderes (Kinorhyncha: Cyclorhagida) from Mediterranean seamounts and from the deep-sea floor in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean, including notes on two undescribed species.
Two new species of Echinoderes from the Eratosthenes Seamount and a deep-sea station near the Sedlo Seamount are described and the morphological data of two undescribed species are given. Expand
Faunistic research on metazoan meiofauna from seamounts - a review
The present contribution reviews the scientific research on seamount meiofauna over the past > 40 years, including remarks on fundamental questions such as the potential role of seamounts as stepping stones/staging posts or “trapping stones” for meiobenthic species. Expand
