Antarctic Porifera database from the Spanish benthic expeditions: Bentart, Gebrap and Ciemar
This database includes information on porífera collected during several Spanish Antarctic expeditions: Bentart 94; Bentart 95; Gebrap 96; Ciemar 99/00 and Bentart 2003. The expeditions focused from the Antarctic Peninsula to Bellingshausen Sea.
Porifera were collected using rock dredge, Van Veen dredge, anchor dredge, suprabenthic sledge, fish traps, scuba diving, Box corer and Agassiz trawl.
The dataset now reaches 771 occurrence data that have checked for systematic reliability. This database is not finished and the collection is growing. The data are available in Gbif.
Systematics reliability and consistency have been checked by Pilar Rios and Javier Cristobo, identification being based on species descriptions produced by different authors of the literature and compiled in the Systema Porifera (Hooper & Soest, 2002) and for Antarctic species, the doctoral thesis by Rios (2007). The classification system adopted in this work is that proposed by Van Soest & Hajdu (2002).
