The structural and functional diversity of the shallow-water benthic community at Terra Nova Bay
Entry ID: K082_2001_2002_NZ_2

Abstract: The biodiversity of the seafloor community at Terra Nova Bay was investigated to determine the structural and functional diversity of the benthic community and to extend the latitudinal gradient survey beyond McMurdo Sound. Three dive sites were established in Tethys Bay in the 02-03 season. Two 20m transect lines were laid on the seafloor within the 15-25m depth stratum starting from haphazardly ... View entire text
