This dataset represents a literature study on the distribution of fossil and recent benthic Ostracoda (Crustacea) from the Southern Ocean, with only a few records of planktonic taxa. 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 This updates the well-known and useful but largely outdated biogeographic Folios of the Antarctic Map Folio Series (American Geographical Society). These records were compiled from 81 papers. A few papers were not included in the dataset because they were either compilations of previous studies: i.e., Brandt, Gooday, Brandão,et al., 2007; Dingle, Lord, Boomer, 1989; Majoran, Dingle, 2001; Majoran, Dingle, 2002; Seeling, Colin, Fauth, 2004. Some "old" papers are included in the dataset but their records should not be included in biogeographic, macroecological analyses, because there are too many misidentifications (i.e. Brady, 1880; Chapman, 1915; CHapman, 1919). The following papers contain information on Southern Ocean Ostracoda, but were not included in the dataset because I (Brandao, S.N.) did not have access to them: Chapman, 1916a; Chapman, 1916; Cusminsky, Whatley, 2008; Gao, Zhang, 1986; Gazdzicki, 1996; Gazdzicki, 2001; Gou, 1994; Lofthouse, 1967; Müller, 1911; Poulsen, 1962; Setty, 1984; Scott, 1912; Whatley, Ramos, Moguilevsky, Chadwick, 1998.

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 8,100 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.
