Surface-associated diatoms from marine habitats at Cape Evans, Antarctica, including the first record of living Eunotogramma marginopunctatum

Abstract

The diversity of diatom communities found epiphytically on red macroalgae collected under the sea ice at Cape Evans, Antarctica, was studied microscopically. Comparison of communities along a depth profile showed that species diversity decreased as depth below sea ice increased. Dominant taxa also changed with depth, with Cocconeis fasciolata dominant at 10… (More)
