Depth distribution data were compared for 172 European and 157 Antarctic benthic invertebrate species occurring in the respective shelf areas. Antarctic species showed significantly wider depth ranges in selected families of the groups Bivalvia, Gastropoda, Amphipoda and Decapoda. No differences were found in Polychaeta, Asteroidea and Ophiuroidea, where European species also showed comparatively wide bathymetric ranges. These extended levels of eurybathy in the Antarctic benthos may be… Expand

A benthic richness hotspot in the Southern Ocean: slope and shelf cryptic benthos of Shag Rocks
Abstract Shelf and slope cryptofauna were sampled at the most northerly shelf environments within the Southern Ocean, Shag Rocks. The area is remarkably rich, with seven phyla, 10 classes, 40Expand
Effects of Late-Cenozoic Glaciation on Habitat Availability in Antarctic Benthic Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea)
TLDR
Effects of habitat contraction during the Last Glacial Maximum on the three most common benthic caridean shrimp species that exhibit a strong depth zonation on the Antarctic continental shelf support the hypothesis that habitat contraction at the LGM resulted in a loss of genetic diversity in shallow water benthos.

Biogeography of Antarctic sea anemones (Anthozoa, Actiniaria): What do they tell us about the origin of the Antarctic benthic fauna?
The present study of the biogeography of the Antarctic sea anemone fauna is based on new records and redescriptions of material collected from the Weddell Sea and Peninsula Antarctica, and on anExpand
Antarctic marine benthic diversity: patterns and processes
TLDR
It is now recognised that the diversity of Antarctic continental shelves exceeds that of the Arctic, and is comparable with temperate and even some non-reef tropical shelves. Expand
The role of iceberg scours in niche separation within the Antarctic fish genus Trematomus
TLDR
Findings indicate that small-scale horizontal patterns caused by iceberg scours play a distinct role in Trematomus niche separation, which is higher in preferred than in non-preferred areas. Expand
Polychaete diversity in the Scotia Arc benthic realm: Are polychaetes tracers for faunal exchange?
TLDR
It is suggested that the islands of the Scotia Sea may constitute a bridge for exchange of benthic species, particularly for polychaetes with eurybathic distribution and high dispersal capabilities. Expand
Composition and distribution of benthic isopod (Crustacea, Malacostraca) families off the Victoria-Land Coast (Ross Sea, Antarctica)
TLDR
The benthic fauna off the Victoria-Land-Coast, Ross Sea (Antarctica) was investigated during the 19th Italica expedition in February 2004 and Paramunnidae was the most frequent taxon and was collected at all stations, in contrast to the Desmosomatidae, which did not occur at any station off Cape Adare.

Evolution of Antarctic biodiversity in the context of the past: the importance of the Southern Ocean deep sea
Present day Southern Ocean benthic biodiversity is the result of climatic changes based on the break-up of Gondwana in the Cretaceous and the Cenozoic and the physiological potential of the fauna toExpand
Climate Change and Invasibility of the Antarctic Benthos
TLDR
As sea temperatures continue to rise, the invasion of durophagous predators will modernize the shelf benthos and erode the indigenous character of marine life in Antarctica. Expand
Ophiuroid biodiversity patterns along the Antarctic Peninsula
TLDR
This study provides a baseline for detecting potential effects related to climate change, and it furnishes a basis for the implementation of monitoring schemes of Antarctic assemblages. Expand

The Southern Ocean Benthic Fauna and Climate Change: A Historical Perspective
TLDR
The present benthic marine fauna of the Southern Ocean is rich and diverse, consisting of a mixture of taxa with differing evolutionary histories and biogeographical affinities, suggesting that at no time in the Cenozoic did continental ice sheets extend sufficiently to eradicate all shallow-water faunas around Antarctica at the same time.
