MOLUSCOS RECIENTES DEL CANAL BEAGLE, TIERRA DEL FUEGO: UN ANÁLISIS CUALITATIVO Y CUANTITATIVO DE LOS ENSAMBLES DE VALVAS FÓSILES Y ACTUALES

In the Isla Grande of Tierra del Fuego, the marine Holocene (ca. 8.000 years BP) is represented by littoral deposits, mostly up to 10 m a.s.l. raised marine terraces, extending along the modern coast, and characterized by the presence of mollusk shells, mainly bivalves and gastropods. In this work, which is focused on Holocene mollusk assemblages from the Beagle channel, a...

Marine debris: global and regional impacts

A synthesis on the Marine Debris problem is given upon de basis of the general knowledge on the matter as well as that obtained at Cape Shirreff, Livingston Island, South Shetland, Antarctica. It is suggested to improve the database on marine debris through permanent scientific research as well as with monitoring activities. It is necessary to coordinate key groups to apply...

Caracterización de la diversidad de moluscos bentónicos sublitorales en Isla Carlos III y áreas adyacentes, Estrecho de Magallanes, Chile

Despite the knowledge of marine benthic ecology in the Strait of Magellan, few studies have been focused on malacofauna. During April and June (2007), an extensive region on Carlos III Island and adjacent areas were studied under the project "Diagnosis of Macrobenthos in the Multiple-use Marine Protected Area Francisco Coloane". Subtidal benthic samples (5-20 m deep) were...

Foraminíferos Bentónicos recientes del Estrecho de Magallanes, y canales australes chilenos CIMAR 3 FIORDOS (52° - 56°S)

Results of taxonomic analysis and comunity structure of benthic foraminifers collected during CI-MAR 3 FIORDOS expedition (1997, 1st. Stage), Comité Oceanográfico Nacional (CONA) were presented. A total of 33 samples of marine sediment from estrecho de Magallanes and southernmost channels and fjords, Chile (52° - 56° S) were analyzed. Abundance, density, species richness...

Los Coccinélidos (Coleóptera: Coccinellidae) de la región de Magallanes: Nuevos registros y distribución regional

Although ladybirds are the most charismatic beetles, are practically unknown in the Magellan region. For this reason, the purpose of this study is to compile, update and submit new records of ladybirds, also provide regional distribution, biogeographical and ecological data. 13 species of ladybirds from Magellan region are recorded in the literature and fve new records are added...

Estado actual del conocimiento de la familia Stercorariidae en el extremo sur de Chile

Chilean skua belongs to a relatively low studied family, and the investigations on this group involve mostly sightings during expeditions for birds in extreme southern of Chile. They are also called "salteadores" (robbers) because of their opportunistic costumes; usually, they are described as big, aggressive and scavenger sea gulls. The term "skua" comes from the faroese "sk...
