Antarctic Deep Sea (ANDEEP): Isopods occurence (Isopoda, Crustacea)
Brandt, A., Brökeland, W., Choudhury, M., Brix, S., Kaiser, S & Malyutina, M. [date accessed]: Deep-sea isopod diversity (occurence data) in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean - the ANDEEP I - III expeditions. World Wide Web electronic publication.
Contact: Danis, Bruno

Three expeditions were performed in the framework of ANDEEP (ANtarctic benthic DEEP-sea biodiversity, colonisation history and recent community patterns) in order to understand the Southern Ocean (SO) biodiversity of the Isopoda and to investigate faunal connections with other deep-sea areas in the world oceans. We sampled mainly in the Atlantic sector of the SO (Drake Passage along the Shackleton Fracture Zone, off Elephant Island, in the South Shetland Islands area, in the northwestern Weddell Sea, and at the South Sandwich Islands), but also took two stations in each Bellingshausen Sea and Cape Basin. In total, three expeditions yielded 13,046 specimens of Isopoda. During ANDEEP I–II 5525 specimens and 317 species of Isopoda were sampled, and 7521 specimens and 496 species were discriminated from the ANDEEP III material.
