Glacial retreat and subglacial bedrock erosion are consequences of rapid regional warming on the West Antarctic Peninsula. Sedimentation of fine-grained eroded particles can impact the physiology of filter-feeding benthic organisms. We investigated the effect of increasing concentrations of sediment on the oxygen consumption of suspension feeding species,(More)
The Antarctic Peninsula (AP) is one of the three places on Earth that registered the most intense warming in the last 50 years, almost five times the global mean. This warming has strongly affected the cryosphere, causing the largest ice-shelf collapses ever observed and the retreat of 87% of glaciers. Ecosystem responses, although increasingly predicted,(More)
The native solitary ascidian Corella eumyota Traustedt, 1882) is commonly found in the Southern Hemisphere in the cold-temperate waters of the Subantarctic and Antarctic regions. Its recent spread into the Northern Hemisphere throughout the NE Atlantic gave the species the status of invasive. Together with its widespread distribution, reports on its wide(More)
The first open-sea (non-coastal) Marine Protected Area (MPA) in Argentina was created in 2013 (and named “Namuncurá”), at Burdwood Bank, an undersea plateau located about 200 km south from Malvinas/Falkland Islands, SW Atlantic Ocean. This contribution represents the most recent and complete checklist of benthic organisms (mainly mega and macrofauna) that(More)
In Antarctica, ascidians are among the most conspicuous and abundant organisms in benthic ecosystems and many species present wide distribution patterns. Two similar forms of ascidians of the colonial genus Synoicum were sampled along the South Shetland Islands, one greenish-yellow with elongated colony stalks and the other yellow-orange with shorter stalks(More)
