Abstract Information regarding the molluscs in this dataset is based on the Rauschert dredge samples collected during the Latitudinal Gradient Program (LGP) on board the R/V “Italica” in the Ross Sea (Antarctica) in the austral summer 2004. A total of 18 epibenthic dredge deployments/samplings have been performed at four different locations at depths ranging from 84 to 515m by using a Rauschert dredge with a mesh size of 500μm. In total 8,359 specimens have been collected belonging to a total… Expand
Distributional records of Ross Sea (Antarctica) planktic Copepoda from bibliographic data and samples curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA): checklist of species collected in the Ross Sea sector from 1987 to 1995
TLDR
Distributional data on planktic copepods collected in the framework of the IIIrd, Vth, and Xth Expeditions of the Italian National Antarctic Program to the Ross Sea sector from 1987 to 1995 are provided. Expand
Diversity, abundance and composition in macrofaunal molluscs from the Ross Sea (Antarctica): results of fine-mesh sampling along a latitudinal gradient
TLDR
The study of the smaller macrofaunal benthic fraction showed that Antarctic marine research still has far to go to have robust reference baselines to measure possible changes in benthics communities, even in the case of the assumed well-known, well-sampled and well-studied group of Ross Sea shelf molluscs.

Mollusc species richness and abundance from shelf to abyssal depths in the Ross Sea (Antarctica): the importance of fine-mesh-towed gears and implications for future sampling
TLDR
Fine-mesh trawling appears to be of fundamental importance in accelerating the census of the fine fraction, which is the one containing the highest diversity, and is recommended for future sampling in Antarctica and in polar areas in general. Expand
The Bryozoa collection of the Italian National Antarctic Museum, with an updated checklist from Terra Nova Bay, Ross Sea
TLDR
Taxonomic and distributional data of bryozoan species from the Ross Sea area, mainly around Terra Nova Bay, based on specimens curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum are provided. Expand
Porifera collection of the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA), with an updated checklist from Terra Nova Bay (Ross Sea)
TLDR
This new dataset presents occurrence data for Porifera collected in the Ross Sea, mainly in the Terra Nova Bay area, and curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum, and a 3D model of an uncommon species from theRoss Sea is presented. Expand
Distributional records of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic Ophiuroidea from samples curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA): check-list update of the group in the Terra Nova Bay area (Ross Sea) and launch of the MNA 3D model ‘virtual gallery’
TLDR
The distributional records of Ophiuroidea stored at the Italian National Antarctic Museum are presented, corresponding to 1595 individuals that belong to 35 species and 17 genera, whose check-list of species increases from 15 to 18 species. Expand
Distributional records of Ross Sea (Antarctica) Tanaidacea from museum samples stored in the collections of the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA) and the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)
TLDR
Distributional data for Tanaidacea specimens collected during several Antarctic expeditions to the Ross Sea are reported for a total of 2953 individuals belonging to 33 genera and 50 species. Expand
Oceanographic moorings as year-round laboratories for investigating growth performance and settlement dynamics in the Antarctic scallop Adamussium colbecki (E. A. Smith, 1902)
TLDR
The remarkable survival rate of caged specimens supports the feasibility of caging experiments, even for a species with a fragile shell such as the Antarctic scallop, and represents a baseline for the characterization of Antarctic fouling biodiversity. Expand
The End of the Cold Loneliness: 3D Comparison between Doto antarctica and a New Sympatric Species of Doto (Heterobranchia: Nudibranchia)
TLDR
The combination of thorough morphological and anatomical description and molecular analyses provides a comprehensive means to characterize and delineate species, thus suggesting evolutionary scenarios. Expand

Distribution and composition of macrozoobenthic communities along a Victoria-Land Transect (Ross Sea, Antarctica)
TLDR
Abundance and biomass proportions of major taxa changed gradually along the latitudinal transect and total number of abundance decreased with depth with an exception at Cape Russell, whereas a trend in biomass was not documented. Expand
