Record #186048:

Biogeographic patterns of benthic invertebrate megafauna on shelf areas within the Southern Ocean Atlantic sector / S.J. Lockhart, C.D. Jones.

Title: Biogeographic patterns of benthic invertebrate megafauna on shelf areas within the Southern Ocean Atlantic sector / S.J. Lockhart, C.D. Jones.
Author(s): Lockhart, S. J.
Jones, C. D.
Date: 2008.
In: CCAMLR Science. (2008.), Vol. 15 (2008)
Abstract: Analyses data from trawl catches of four research cruises between 1999-2006 to show distributional patterns of benthic invertebrate megafaunal assemblages. For northern Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands, data indicate two-layered pattern based on standardised total biomass data and composition of phyla that contribute to that biomass. Examination of physical oceanographic data reveals pattern of shelf faunal zonation, such that communities on northern shelves can be separated into zones based on physical properties of Antarctic circumpolar current and Weddell Sea water masses that meet and mix in region. Effects of disturbance regimes by iceberg scouring or historical commercial bottom trawling are evident at smaller spatial scales. Patterns of benthic invertebrate biomass are also described for South Orkney Islands, as well as general patterns of phylum-level composition for South Georgia, South Sandwich and Bouvet Islands. These regions are generally echinoderm-dominated, compared to hexactinellid sponge-dominated northern Antarctic Peninsula region.
