Abbau- und Managementstrategien

Felix Janssen, Thomas Soltwedel & Matthias Haeckel
Momentan wird erwartet, dass Schädigungen durch den Abbau reduziert werden können, wenn gestörte Flächen durch ungestörte Areale unterbrochen sind. Es besteht jedoch noch umfassender Forschungsbedarf, um wissenschaftlich fundierte Empfehlungen zu geeigneten Abbaustrategien zu geben. Es kann gegenwärtig noch nicht vorhergesagt werden, inwieweit diese geeignet sind, durch Tiefseebergbau verursachte Umweltfolgen abzumildern und irreversible Schädigungen abzuwenden.

Baseline-Studien für die Erkundungsgebiete. Wie tief reicht der Sauerstoff, was sind die Sedimentationsraten?

Sabine Kasten
Ohne die Kenntnisse der Sedimentationsbedingungen sowie der ökologischen und geochemischen Zustände in der Tiefsee können die Auswirkungen zukünftiger menschlicher Eingriffe in die Tiefsee nicht ermittelt werden. Insbesondere die Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ) im äquatorialen Pazifik ist für den Manganknollen-Abbau potentiell interessant und Gegenstand der Untersuchungen.

Humpback whale song presence in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean

Elena Schall, Karolin Thomisch, Olaf Boebel, Gabriele Gerlach, Sari Mangia Woods, Irene Roca & Ilse Van Opzeeland
Humpback whale song most likely fulfills a multi-purpose role in the humpback whale mating system including both inter- and intrasexual interactions. Humpback whale males produce most of their songs on the low-latitude breeding grounds, but evidences increase, showing that songs are also produced ‘off-season’ on the feeding grounds or during migration. This opens exciting opportunities to investigate migratory aggregations, study humpback whale behavioral plasticity and potentially even assign individual singers to specific breeding grounds. In...

Repositories for taxonomic data: Where we are and what is missing

Aurélien Miralles, Teddy Bruy, Katherine Wolcott, Mark Scherz, Dominik Begerow, Bank Beszteri, Michael Bonkowski, Janine Felden, Birgit Gemeinholzer, Frank Glaw, Frank Oliver Glöckner, Oliver Hawlitschek, Ivaylo Kostadinov, Tim Nattkemper, Christian Printzen, Jasmin Renz, Nataliya Rybalka, Marc Stadler, Tanja Weibulat, Thomas Wilke, Susanne Renner & Miguel Vences
Natural history collections are leading successful large-scale projects of specimen digitization (images, metadata, DNA barcodes), transforming taxonomy into a big data science. Yet, little effort has been directed towards safeguarding and subsequently mobilizing the considerable amount of original data generated during the process of naming 15–20,000 species every year. From the perspective of alpha-taxonomists, we provide a review of the properties and diversity of taxonomic data, assess their volume and use, and establish criteria for...

Evolution and phylogeny of the deep-sea isopod families Desmosomatidae Sars, 1897 and Nannoniscidae Hansen, 1916 (Isopoda: Asellota)

Robert Jennings, Saskia Brix, Christoph Held, Stefanie Kaiser, Amy Driskell & Angelika Brandt
In the deep sea, the phylogeny and biogeography of only a few taxa have been well studied. Although more than 200 species in 32 genera have been described for the asellote isopod families Desmosomatidae Sars, 1897 and Nannoniscidae Hansen, 1916 from all ocean basins, their phylogenetic relationships are not completely understood. There is little doubt about the close relationship of these families, but the taxonomic position of a number of genera is so far unknown....

Water temperature at time series station Liliguapi, Paso Comau, Patagonia, Chile in 2017/2018

Jürgen Laudien, Verena Häussermann & Günter Försterra
Comau Fjord, Northern Patagonia, Chile is a core monitoring area to reveal the impact of climate change on benthic cold-water communities. In order to record the water temperature at shallow cold-water coral banks, several long-term stations have been established in 2009. This data set provides the water temperature logged at an interval of 15 min at the station Liliguapi in a depth of 18 m between 2017-01-21 and 2018-04-18.

Species distribution, hybridization and connectivity in the genus Chionodraco: unveiling unknown icefish diversity in Antarctica

Luca Schiavon, Valérie Dulière, Mario La Mesa, Ilaria Marino, Giuditta Codogno, Elisa Boscari, Emilio Riginella, Alessandra Battistotti, Magnus Lucassen, Lorenzo Zane & Chiara Papetti
Aim The species of the genus Chionodraco (Notothenioidei) are the most abundant icefish on the continental shelf of the Weddell Sea. While previous studies indicated that only Chionodraco hamatus and Chionodraco myersi inhabit the Weddell Sea, the third Chionodraco species, Chionodraco rastrospinosus, was recently sampled in the area. Since C. rastrospinosus is supposed to be found only at the Antarctic Peninsula and Scotia Arc, this study aimed at confirming the species classification of C. rastrospinosus...

Phenotypic data for M. edulis responses to warming and ocean acidification

Omera Matoo, Gisela Lannig, Christian Bock & Inna Sokolova
1. In mosaic marine habitats, such as intertidal zones, ocean acidification (OA) is exacerbated by high variability of pH, temperature, and biological CO2 production. The non-linear interactions among these drivers can be context-specific and their effect on organisms in these habitats remains largely unknown, warranting further investigation. 2. We were particularly interested in Mytilus edulis (the blue mussel) from intertidal zones of the Gulf of Maine (GOM), USA for this study. GOM is a hot...

Data from: Machine learning identifies ecological selectivity patterns across the end-Permian mass extinction

William Foster, Georgy Ayzel, Jannes Münchmeyer, Tabea Rettelbach, Niklas Kitzmann, Terry Isson, Maria Mutti & Martin Aberhan
The end-Permian mass extinction occurred alongside a large swathe of environmental changes that are often invoked as extinction mechanisms, even when a direct link is lacking. One way to elucidate the cause(s) of a mass extinction is to investigate extinction selectivity as it can reveal critical information on organismic traits as key determinants of extinction and survival. Here we show that machine learning algorithms, specifically gradient boosted decision trees, can be used to identify determinants...

Strategien zur Renaturierung von Abbaugebieten

Felix Janssen, Thomas Soltwedel & Matthias Haeckel
Mehr als 100.000 verschiedene Arten in den Ozeanen sind mittlerweile bekannt, die biologische Vielfalt ist jedoch noch weit größer und viele Arten noch nicht entdeckt. Gerade in der Tiefsee stößt man bei jeder Probenentnahme auf weitere unbekannte Arten. Belastbare Aussagen zu einer potentiellen Wiederbesiedelung abgebauter und gestörter Flächen können nur auf der Basis intensiver wissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen getroffen werden.

It is an alpine freshwater lake with a maximum water depth of 36.7 m, an open surface area of 1.7 km2, a specific conductivity of 0.045 mS/cm,...

Data from: Seasonal and diel cycles of fin whale acoustic occurence near Elephant Island, Antarctica

Elke Burkhardt
This study investigates the relevance of the Elephant Island region for Southern Hemisphere fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus) in their annual life cycle. We collected three years of passive acoustic recordings (Jan 2013 to Feb 2016) northwest of EI to calculate time series of fin whale acoustic indices, daily acoustic occurrence, spectrograms, as well as abundance of their 20-Hz pulses. Acoustic backscatter strength, sea ice concentration and chlorophyll a composites provided concurrent environmental information for graphic...

Plant sedimentary ancient DNA data from Far East Russia

Sichao Huang, Kathleen R. Stoof-Leichsenring, Sisi Liu, Jeremy Courtin, Andrej A. Andreev, Luidmila Pestryakova & Ulrike Herzschuh
Woody plants are expanding into the Arctic in response to the warming climate. The impact on arctic plants is not well understood due to the limited knowledge about plant assembly rules. Past plant diversity over long time series is rare. Here, we applied sedimentary ancient DNA metabarcoding targeting the P6 loop of the chloroplast trnL gene to a sediment record from Lake Ilirney (central Chukotka, Far Eastern Russia) covering the last 28 thousand years. Our...
