Macrobenthic Mollusca from Prince Gustav Channel and Duse Bay, Eastern Antarctic Peninsula collected by epibenthic sledge in March 2018Katrin Linse & Madeline Anderson
In 2018 RRS James Clark Ross investigated the marine benthic biodiversity of the Prince Gustav Channel area and the macrobenthic molluscan fauna collected by epibenthic sledge (EBS) has been assessed for species richness, abundance and assemblage composition as well as for functional traits. In total 20,307 mollusc specimens assigned to 50 morphospecies and 4 classes (Solenogastres, Bivalvia, Gastropoda and Scaphopoda) were identified. Assemblage analyses across the Prince Gustav Channel area did not show apparent pattern...
Macrobenthic Cumacea collected by epibenthic sledge from the Amundsen Sea in March 2008 and from the Prince Gustav Channel and Duse Bay, Eastern Antarctic Peninsula in March 2018Katrin Linse, Laura Steib, Angelika Brandt & Davide Di Franco
In 2008 RRS James Clark Ross investigated the marine benthic biodiversity in Amundsen Sea and in 2018 the marine benthic biodiversity of the Prince Gustav Channel (PGC) area and the macrobenthic cumacean fauna (Peracarida, Crustacea) collected by epibenthic sledge (EBS) has been assessed for species richness, abundance and assemblage composition. In total 4431 cumacean specimens assigned to 58 morphospecies and 5 families were identified. To set the cumacean dataset into a wider context, published cumacean...
Macrobenthic Isopoda collected by epibenthic sledge from the southern Weddell Sea in 2012, South Orkney Islands in 2016, Prince Gustav Channel in 2018 and Eastern Antarctic Peninsula in 2019Davide Di Franco, Angelika Brandt & Katrin Linse
In 2012 RRS James Clark Ross investigated the marine benthic biodiversity of the southern Weddell Sea (JR275), in 2016 the marine benthic biodiversity of the South Orkney Islands (JR15005) and in 2018 the marine benthic biodiversity of the Prince Gustav Channel area. In 2019 RV Polarstern investigated the marine benthic biodiversity of the eastern Antarctic Peninsula (PS119). During all expeditions macrobenthic isopod fauna (Peracarida, Crustacea) was collected by a total of 37 epibenthic sledge (EBS)...
Do all roads lead to resistance? State road density is the main impediment to gene flow in a flagship species inhabiting a severely fragmented anthropogenic landscapeKatharina Westekemper, Annika Tiesmeyer, Katharina Steyer & Carsten Nowak
The wildcat population in Germany is currently estimated between 6,000 and 15,000 individuals, and the European wildcat serves as an umbrella species due to its diverse habitat demands. Our study took place in the core range of the European wildcat in Germany, covering an area of ca. 186.000 km², and we used genotypes of 975 pure-bred wildcat individuals. Data were largely based on non-invasively sampled hair, but also included tissue, saliva, faeces and blood samples...
1. Sodium (Na) is an essential element for all animals, but not plants. Soil Na supplies vary geographically. Animals that primarily consume plants thus have the potential to be Na limited and plants that uptake Na may be subject to higher rates of herbivory, but their high Na content also may attract beneficial partners such as pollinators and seed dispersers. 2. To test for the effects of Na biogeochemistry on herbivory, we conducted distributed Na...
