Free-living marine nematodes from San Antonio Bay (Río Negro, Argentina).

Villares G, Lo Russo V, Pastor de Ward C, Milano V, Miyashiro L, Mazzanti R - Zookeys (2016)

Bottom Line: A total of 36 samples has been taken at three locations in the San Antonio Bay, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina on the coastal littoral at three tidal levels.This presents a unique and important collection for benthic biodiversity assessment of Patagonian nematodes as this area remains one of the least known regions.In total 7,743 specimens of free-living marine nematodes belonging to two classes, eight orders, 37 families, 94 genera and 104 species were collected.

ABSTRACT
The dataset of free-living marine nematodes of San Antonio Bay is based on sediment samples collected in February 2009 during doctoral theses funded by CONICET grants. A total of 36 samples has been taken at three locations in the San Antonio Bay, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina on the coastal littoral at three tidal levels. This presents a unique and important collection for benthic biodiversity assessment of Patagonian nematodes as this area remains one of the least known regions. In total 7,743 specimens of free-living marine nematodes belonging to two classes, eight orders, 37 families, 94 genera and 104 species were collected.

Figure 1: Taxonomic coverage by class, order and family.

Mentions: This is the first study on nematodes performed on a sub-Antarctic salt marsh along the coast of Río Negro Province, Argentina. This site has a high biodiversity and was declared a Protected Natural Area N°2.670 of the province of Río Negro in 1993 as well as an international reserve of the hemispheric network of Shorebird Reserve within the Wetlands program for the Americas. However, it is also an urban center where economic, industrial and tourist activities take place. The objectives of the study were to collect, identify and discover the structure and diversity of the nematode community of San Antonio Bay. The coverage (Figure 1) of this dataset includes two classes: Chromadorea (76%) and Enoplea (24%); eight orders: Monhysterida (39%), followed by Enoplida (23%) and Chromadorida (19%) as main occurrences; and thirty-seven families (see Figure 1).
