The evolution and the historical biogeography of the Southern Ocean marine benthic fauna are closely related to major tectonic and climatic changes that occurred in this region during the last 55 million years (Ma). Several families, genera and even species of marine organisms are shared between distant biogeographic provinces in this region. This pattern of distribution in marine benthic invertebrates has been commonly explained by vicariant speciation due to plate tectonics. However, recent… CONTINUE READING
