Title: Study of the benthic fauna and flora of the seabeds in southern area of Livingston Island
Description:
Abstract:
In English: Estimate of the plentifulness of the different benthic species, by means of samples collected in radial areas with drag box-corer, Agassiz drag and suprabenthic grip slipper, on the southern and northern areas of Livingston Island, Deception Island and Straight of Bransfield. Prospecting of the sampling area with echo sounders EA-500 and EK-500 over the radial in order to determine the nature of the substrate. Collection of the basis oceanographic parameters using CTD in all of the sampling stations. Submarine diving in Livingston Island and Deception Island in order to carry out photographic sampling following paths, quantitative sampling and submarine films. Bionomic mapping using sampling with submarine video (robot HYBALL). Study of the trophic relations fish-benthos by means of analysis of stomachal contents of fish. Study of the stock, phenology and production of the main communities of macrophytes. En Espanol: Estimacion de la abundancia de las diferentes especies bentonicas, mediante muestreos en radiales con draga box-corer, arrastre Agassiz y pat?n de arrastre suprabentonico, en las zonas sur y norte de Livingston, Deception y estrecho de Bransfield. Prospeccion del area de muestreo con ecosondas EA-500 y EK-500, sobre los radiales, para la determinacion de la naturaleza del substrato. Recogida de parametros oceanograficos basicos mediante CTD en todas las estaciones de muestreo. Inmersiones submarinas en Livingston y Decepcion para la realizacion de muestreos fotograficos siguiendo trasectos, muestreos cuantitativos y filmaciones submarinas. Cartografiado bionomico mediante muestreo con video submarino (robot HYBALL). Estudio de las relaciones troficas peces-bentos mediante analisis de contenidos estomacales de peces. Estudio del stock, fenolog?a y produccion de las principales comunidades de macrofitos.
