The dataset contains information of the samples taken during the first leg of the ANTARXXVII campaign in the Southern Ocean aboard BAP Carrasco from December 24, 2019 to January 25, 2020. Samples were collected using an amphipod trap, Isaacs-Kidd midwater trawl (IKMT) and van veen grab sampler deployed in the stations within Admiralty bay, along Bransfield Strait and within Maxwell Bay. All the samples that were caught were identified and grouped to the lowest taxonomic level possible using the keys of Marine Wildlife King George Island Antarctica by Schories & Kohlberg (2016) and Rauschert & Arntz (2015). Other taxonomic keys and photographs provided by Cédric d'Udekem d'Acoz were also used for confirmation. The dataset gives an overview on the distribution and abundance of these species in the Admiralty bay, Bransfield Strait and Maxwell Bay during the summer season.

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 346 records.

1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Occurrence (core)

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Project Data

RECTO applies a multidisciplinary approach in studying evolution and diversity of Southern Ocean faunas. RECTO has 6 main objectives: 1) Reconstruct population histories and phylogenies of selected faunas; 2) Link population histories and refugia to past climate changes; 3) Estimate variation of morphological traits and width of ecological niches; 4) Use physiological and energy limits and traits to model current and future species distributions; 5) Integrate distribution models into hydrodynamic and particle models; and, 6) Develop different scenarios on how target taxa will respond to future climate change. RECTO will focus on six different animal groups, comprising different trophic levels from the micro- over macro-benthos and pelagic crustaceans to fish and seabirds. The selected species differ in their biology, life history traits and dispersal capacities, which are all factors affecting their abilities to cope with environmental changes.
