Dataset: Tasmanian Seamounts Study 1997 (SS 01/97): Biological Data Overview


This record is an overview entry for biological data collected on Southern Surveyor cruise SS 01/97. This cruise took place in southern Tasmanian Continental Slope waters during 20 January - 1 February 1997, under the leadership of Tony Koslow. Biological data collected on this cruise include photographic surveys of four seamounts, dredge samples, faunal samples (including corals and many other benthic invertebrates) and fish samples. Samples of several species of corals, including Solenosmilia variabilis, were also taken for genetic analysis, and rock samples taken for age determination of the seamounts.
