Benthic macro- and megafauna of the West Antarctic Peninsula ShelfEntry ID: FOODBANCS_invertebrates
Abstract: Macrofaunal abundances and diversity from box cores and megacores down
to 10cm sediment depth from three 600m stations on the West Antarctic
Peninsula Shelf. Megafaunal abundances from towed camera surveys,
using otter trawl collections for species identification.
Reproductive biology of five species of echinoderms. Stable isotope
food web analysis of megafauna, including isotope data for
phytodetritus, sediments, net-collected plankton, and ice algae.
Seasonal recruitment of mega- and macrofauna, including larval
abundances in the plankton.
