The macrobenthic infaunal communities of polychaetes from South Shetland Islands (Antarctica) were studied. A total of 3700 specimens of polychaetes belonging to 29 families were identified; 89 species are herein reported. The families Maldanidae and Terebellidae were the most abundant and frequent in the studied areas. The polychaete communities was studied in two ways: Comparison among sampling stations (diversity, richness and eveness; similarity in faunistic composition and determination of… Expand
Biodiversity, zoogeography and ecology of polychaetes from the Magellan region and adjacent areas = Diversität, Zoogeographie und Ökologie von Polychaeten der Magellanregion und angrenzender Gebiete
TLDR
It is suggested that the polychaete assemblage structures in both regions are influenced by environmental stress through ice and physical complexity of the areas resulting in many different habitats. Expand
Polychaete fauna associated with holdfasts of the large brown alga Himantothallus grandifolius in Admiralty Bay, King George Island, Antarctic
TLDR
The polychaete community associated with holdfasts of the brown alga Himantothallus grandifolius in Admiralty Bay has been studied and a positive correlation was found between the number of individuals and holdfast volume. Expand
Is polychaete diversity in the deep sublittoral of an Antarctic fiord related to habitat complexity
TLDR
High richness and diversity was noted in the third assemblage, associated with the deep sublittoral (400-500 m) of Admiralty Bay, where the assemblages was dominated by Tharyx cincinnatus, Sternaspis sp. Expand
Polychaete assemblages on the Magellan and Weddell Sea shelves: comparative ecological evaluation
TLDR
It is suggested that the polychaete assemblage structures in both regions are influenced by environmental stress through ice and the physical complexity of the areas, which results in many different habitats. Expand
Bathymetric distribution of the meiofaunal polychaetes in the nearshore zone of Martel Inlet, King George Island, Antarctica
Polychaetes, the dominant macrofaunal taxa of the Antarctic soft sediments, provided more than 40% of the animals found in Martel Inlet. However, little information is available on the composition ofExpand
Distribution of polychaetes in the shallow, sublittoral zone of Admiralty Bay, King George Island, Antarctica in the early and late austral summer
This study assessed the spatial distribution pa- ttern of soft-sediment polychaetes on the near-shore of Admiralty Bay, King George Island, Antarctica. In the early and late summer of 2003 /04, sevenExpand
Macroinvertebrate communities from the shallow soft-bottoms of Deception Island (Southern Ocean): A paradise for opportunists.
TLDR
A general trophic web is proposed for the shallow waters of Port Foster linking the unusually high densities of macroinvertebrates with the also high occurrence of megafaunal echinoderms present in this area. Expand
Distribution patterns and biodiversity in polychaete communities of the Weddell Sea and Antarctic Peninsula area (Southern Ocean)
During the expedition EASIZ II with RV ‘POLARSTERN’ in 1998 a multibox corer yielded 151 quantitative samples from 26 stations between 120 and 2415 m water depth for benthic community analysis. FromExpand
Quantitative analysis of soft-bottom polychaetes of the Bellingshausen Sea and Gerlache Strait (Antarctica)
TLDR
The present study provides further support to previous ones that considered the shelf of the Bellingshausen Sea as a differentiated region within the Southern Ocean, clearly distinct to the adjacent Weddell and Scott Seas and the Antarctic Peninsula. Expand
Seasonal dynamics of soft-bottom polychaetes in Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea, Eastern Mediterranean)
Seasonal dynamics of soft-bottom polychaetes were investigated at 29 stations (depths: 8-77 m) in Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea, eastern Mediterranean) between 1997 and 2002. A total of 396 species belongingExpand
