This resource has not been registered with GBIF

Echinoid occurrences available on the Kerguelen Plateau. Data from 1872 to 2015 collected with different sampling strategies and objectives, during different campaigns. Visited areas during Marion Dufresne (MD03, MD04), POKER and PROTEKER campaigns are also provided as "noOccurrence" data.

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 656 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.

Taxonomic Coverage

The present dataset focuses on all species of the class Echinoidea (Echinodermata) that are distributed on the Kerguelen Plateau. Echinoids are common species of benthic communities in the Southern Ocean and on the Kerguelen Plateau (David et al. 2005). They are diversified and well-studied. Historical data are available since 1872, starting with the Challenger Expedition, and are completed with recent occurrences collected nearshore areas of the Kerguelen Islands during the PROTEKER campaigns (2013-2015). Echinoid studies take part in conservation issues. Ctenocidaris nutrix is considered a Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VME) indicator species by CCAMLR (Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) and is widely distributed on the Kerguelen Plateau. On the Kerguelen Plateau, the Class Echinoidea includes five families, 10 genera, and 12 species. Species distribution is shown in Figure 2.
