SCAR Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean - macroalgae

Latest version published by Antarctic Biodiversity Information Facility (ANTABIF) on Oct 17, 2016 Antarctic Biodiversity Information Facility (ANTABIF)

This dataset represents a literature study on the distribution of marcoalgae in Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic waters. Dataset supplied in the framework of the SCAR Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean (BASO). The Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean is a collection of representative maps and syntheses on the distribution of the Southern Ocean organisms, providing a general overview of the biogeography of the Southern Ocean (s.l.) and a benchmark of current biogeographic knowledge at the end of the Census of Antarctic Marine Life. This updates the well-known and useful but largely outdated biogeographic Folios of the Antarctic Map Folio Series (American Geographical Society). This dataset contains species records of macro algae from the Southern Ocean (locations below 40°S) reported in 72 publications published between 1890 and 2011.

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 590 records.

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.

Sampling Methods

/

Study Extent Literature study
Quality Control A common first step in data cleaning was to check the data-type constraints for all variables. In the provided template, each variable was associated with a particular data type (e.g. text for species names, or numeric values for latitudes and longitudes). Where possible, incorrect data types were transformed to the correct ones. The taxonomic information of the records was validated using RAMS through the taxon match tool on the WORMS website. For samples lacking geographic coordinates but possessing verbatim localities, approximate localities were determined using the SCAR gazetteer. In cases where records were georeferenced using degrees minutes seconds or degrees decimal seconds, these values were converted to decimal degrees. Plots of the data points were used to identify obvious outliers (e.g. points over land, or in the wrong hemisphere) and errors due to swapping of latitude and longitude values, or in the sign of decimal degrees.
