Biopearl expedition: SeaStars (Echinodermata, Asteroidea)
This dataset has never been published
This dataset includes information on sea stars collected during the Biopearl (Biodiversity, Phylogeny, Evolution and Adaptive Radiation of Life in Antarctica) expedition (2006). The expedition focused on 29 stations along the Scotia Arc at 4 different depths (200, 500, 1000, 1500 m), using an Epibenthic Sledge (EBS). Synonymy was resolved by consulting the Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS), that is accessible via internet and that compiles the most recent information about Antarctic asteroid taxonomy (Danis & Jangoux, 2007), delivering us in this way the valid species names.
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 24 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.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
