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). more

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 This updates the well-known and useful but largely outdated biogeographic Folios of the Antarctic Map Folio Series (American Geographical Society).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.
The Geographic coverage includes the Antarctic and Subantarctic regions of the Southern Ocean (as defined by SCAR-MarBIN).
Taxonomic coverage: All benthic Ostracoda (all Podocopida, all Platicopida, all Myodocopina, from the Halocypridina only the Clydocopina and the Thaumatocypridoidea). A few records of Halocypridoidea (i.e. planktonic Ostracoda) are also included in the present dataset.
