The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely. Expand
Invertebrate diversity of the unexplored marine western margin of Australia: taxonomy and implications for global biodiversity
It is shown that infaunal macrofauna (crustaceans and polychaetes) of the lower bathyal depth range are underrepresented among available data and documented results from Australia, and estimates of global species, however made, are based on limited data. Expand
Productivity enhances benthic species richness along an oligotrophic Indian Ocean continental margin
Aims Marine soft sediments cover much of the deep ocean and are one of the largest habitats in the world, yet much of our understanding about their diversity is based on sampling in the NorthExpand
New Zealand Ceratocumatidae and Nannastacidae (Crustacea: Cumacea)
The cumacean fauna of New Zealand has been little studied, and recent collecting on the Chatham Rise and ChallengerPlateau has yielded many new species and new genera. The first record of the familyExpand
The Lampropidae (Crustacea: Cumacea) of the World.
Prior to the present study, the cumacean family Lampropidae included 114 species, but revisions and investigation of museum collections yielded 12 new genera and 23 new species and genera. Expand
Investigation of the collections of Museum Victoria, the Australian Museum, and the South Australian Museum yielded six new genera and 45 new species, diagnosed and figured in this monograph. Expand
A new species of Cumacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) from Chile, Lamprops kensleyi
Lamprops kensleyi is distinguished from all other members of the genus by the combination of an unornamented carapace and 3 terminal setae on the telson. Expand
Phylogenetic and functional evidence suggests that deep-ocean ecosystems are highly sensitive to environmental change and direct human disturbance
It is concluded that deep-ocean communities are highly sensitive to their physical environment and vulnerable to environmental perturbation, including by direct disturbance through fishing, and indirectly through the changes brought about by climate change. Expand
