Species lists included in the Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS)
In this section, you can find the list of species composing the SCAR-MarBIN Register of Antarctic Marine Species. The starting point of RAMS was a compilation by Andrew Clarke and Nadine Johnston from the British Antarctic Survey. Individual lists are being implemented progressively in order to reach the final objective of a full coverage during the International Polar Year (2007-2008).
It is intended that this register, managed through SCAR-MarBIN, will provide the most up-to-date information on the marine diversity of the Southern Ocean. It is also intended to build thematic species lists, grouped by geographic, lifestyle, realm, ecosystem, etc...
More details on the Register of Antarctic Marine Species can be found here. More details on contributors and editing history are included with individual lists. The number between parentheses is the number of valid species. The menu items 'Browse taxa' and 'Search taxa' will show results from all lists combined.
