It is suggested that there may be no significant difference between the rates of radiation of tropical and cold-temperate/polar taxa, and what data are available from the fossil record indicate that there is no appreciable latitudinal variation in rates of extinction.

On the origin of Antarctic marine benthic community structure.

North Atlantic phylogeography and large‐scale population differentiation of the seagrass Zostera marina L.

The identification of a high genetic diversity hotspot in Northern Europe provides a basis for restoration decisions and links between historical and contemporary processes are discussed in terms of the projected effects of climate change on coastal marine plants.

Back to the sea: secondary marine organisms from a biogeographical perspective☆

Here biogeographical analyses on the global distribution of 12 groups of land-dependent secondary marine plants and animals show evidence that secondary marine organisms diversified independently in cold-temperate and tropical regions, and suggests that colonization from terrestrial habitats took place independently in the three species-rich latitudinal bands.

Evolution and adaptive radiation of antarctic fishes.

Cenozoic climate change and diversification on the continental shelf and slope: evolution of gastropod diversity in the family Solariellidae (Trochoidea)

It is shown that although fossil data suggest that solariellid gastropods likely arose in a shallow, tropical environment, interpretation of the molecular data is equivocal with respect to the origin of the group, and that Antarctic species sampled represent a recent invasion, rather than a relictual ancestral lineage.

Diversity of calanoid copepods in the North Atlantic and adjacent seas: species associations and biogeography

It is shown that temper- ature, hydrodynamics, stratification and seasonal variability of the environment are likely to be the main factors contributing to the ecological regulation of diversity of calanoid copepods.

2 Biodiversity and Biogeographical Relationships of Antarctic and Arctic Seaweeds

The natural environment of polar seaweeds is characterized by strong seasonal light conditions and constant low temperatures (Zacher et al. 2011). At the northern and southern distribution limits of

The thermohaline expressway: the Southern Ocean as a centre of origin for deep‐sea octopuses

It is suggested that the initiation of the global thermohaline circulation provided a mechanism for the radiation of Southern Ocean fauna into the deep sea and acted as an evolutionary driver enabling the Southern Ocean to become a centre of origin for deep‐sea fauna.
