Sea cucumbers (Echinodemata, Holothuroidea) from the JR275 expedition to the Eastern Weddell Sea, Antarctica - Data
37 holothuroid species including 6 potentially new are reported from the Eastern Weddell Sea in Antarctica. Information regarding sea cucumbers in this dataset is based on Agassiz Trawl (AGT) samples collected during the British Antarctic Survey cruise JR275 on the RRS James Clark Ross in the austral summer of 2012. Species presence by site and an appendix of holothuroid identifications are included. Species occurrence in the Weddell Sea as reported by O’Loughlin et al. 2010 is updated to include new holothuroids from this expedition.
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 348 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.
