Description
In preparing this atlas, a complete inventory of published records for all known species that can be geo-positioned with reasonable accuracy was compiled. These data have been supplemented with a considerable body of unpublished data derived from material collected by Discovery Investigations mostly in the 1930's (identified by MVA). The aim is ultimately to generate a global atlas for all the species. Here as an initial step focused on the species that have been recorded from the Southern Ocean Southern Ocean list.
