BENTHIC ORGANISMS FROM ADMIRALTY BAY

(species list alphabetical)

This list, a result of the cooperation of Polish, Belgian and Brazilian scientists, is prepared within the framework of Admiralty Bay Benthos Diversity Database (ABBED) project. This project is included and supported within the Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) initiative. The present list falls in International Polar Year Core programme, namely the SCAR-Marine Biodiversity Information Network (SCAR-MarBIN).

The species list is compatible with Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS) and it supplements the multi-authored article published in Deep Sea Research II.

When using these data the proper citation is the following:

Siciński J., Jażdżewski K., De Broyer C., Presler P., Ligowski R., Nonato E.F., Corbisier T.N., Petti M.A.V., Brito T.A.S., Lavrado H.P., Błażewicz-Paszkowycz M., Pabis K., Jażdżewska A., Campos L.S. 2010. Admiralty Bay Benthos Diversity?A census of a complex polar ecosystem. Deep-Sea Res. II: Topical Studies in Oceanogrraphy,  58 (1-2), 30-48.
