Biodiversity change after climate-induced ice-shelf collapse in the Antarctic
The marine ecosystem on the eastern shelf of the Antarctic Peninsula was surveyed 5 and 12 years after the climate-induced collapse of the Larsen A and B ice shelves. An impoverished benthic faunaExpand

Is the Species Flock Concept Operational? The Antarctic Shelf Case
There has been a significant body of literature on species flock definition but not so much about practical means to appraise them. We here apply the five criteria of Eastman and McCune for detectingExpand

Evolutionary pathways among shallow and deep-sea echinoids of the genus Sterechinus in the Southern Ocean
Antarctica is structured by a narrow and deep continental shelf that sustains a remarkable number of benthic species. The origin of these species and their affinities with the deep-sea fauna thatExpand

Phylogeny and origin of Jurassic irregular echinoids (Echinodermata: Echinoidea)
A phylogenetic analysis of Jurassic irregular echinoids is realized to explore the origin and early evolution of this important subset of echinoids. The phylogeny is based on 39 characters andExpand

Comparative biogeography of echinoids, bivalves and gastropods from the Southern Ocean
ABSTRACTAim Biogeographical patterns within three classes, the Echinoidea, Bivalvia andGastropoda, were investigated in Antarctic, sub-Antarctic and cold-temperateareas based on species occurrenceExpand

Combining embryology and paleontology: origins of the anterior-posterior axis in echinoids
Abstract The tendency of the periproct to move outside the apical system occurred in eight independent sea urchins lineages, but only one succeeded. The origin of the anterior-posterior axis inExpand

Large-scale distribution analysis of Antarctic echinoids using ecological niche modelling
Understanding the factors that determine the distribution of taxa at various spatial scales is a crucial challenge in the context of global climate change. This holds particularly true for polarExpand

Community structure and spatial distribution of benthic fauna in the Bellingshausen Sea (West Antarctica)
The structure and spatial distribution of the macrofauna community of the Bellingshausen Sea in the western sector of Antarctica was studied during the ‘BENTART–06’ oceanographic expedition. This isExpand

The macro- and megabenthic fauna on the continental shelf of the eastern Amundsen Sea, Antarctica
In 2008 the BIOPEARL II expedition on board of RRS James Clark Ross sailed to the eastern Amundsen Sea Embayment and Pine Island Bay, one of the least studied Antarctic continental shelf regions dueExpand
