Polychaetes in the Southern Ocean are often thought to have wide distribution ranges on a horizontal and vertical scale. Here, this theory is tested for specimens commonly identified as the widely distributed glycerid Glycera kerguelensis using two molecular markers, the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase c subunit I (COI) and the nuclear 28S rDNA. Identical(More)
A number of natural and synthetic sugar analogues have been tested for their antiviral activity, using an influenza virus strain as a model. Hemagglutinating titres (HA) and cytopathic effect (CPE) were surveyed to estimate the virus production. It was found that introduction of the benzyl group into these sugars generally causes them to become antivirally(More)
The genus Terebellides is, despite its often low abundances, a common and diverse element of benthic, soft sediment communities at all depths. In recent years, careful examination of specimens has resulted in numerous descriptions of new species of Terebellides increasing the number of species in the genus to over forty. For the Southern Ocean currently(More)
During the austral summer of 2005, the Weddell deep sea and adjacent basins were sampled in the course of the ANDEEP III project. In this study, 19 epibenthic-sledge stations are analyzed, with a focus on species diversity and distribution patterns of polychaetes. The polychaete fauna of the deep Southern Ocean has been found to be similarly speciose and(More)
Cross-sections for the production of (181)Re, (182m)Re, (182g)Re, (183)Re, (184)Re, and (186)Re from proton bombardment of natural tungsten have been measured using the stacked foil technique for proton energies up to 17.6 MeV. Results are compared with the theoretical excitation functions as calculated by the EMPIRE II code (version 2.19) and experimental(More)
The richness of life in parts of the earth that to us appear inhospitable and remote never fails to fascinate scientists and non-scientists alike. The largest ecosystem of the planet, the abyssal plains of the world ocean, makes up about 90 percent of the seafloor and thus nearly 78 percent of the Earth’s surface, yet only a minor fraction of this huge(More)
