Peracarida of Bernardo O’Higgins National Park (S Chile)

Latest version published by Universidad de Magallanes on Nov 15, 2019 Universidad de Magallanes

Bernardo O’Higgins National Park is placed in the Chilean geopolitical regions of Aysén and Magallanes, between 48.0–51.6°S and 73.3–75.8°W, in the central part of the the Chilean Fjords and Channels Ecoregion, and adjacent to the Southern Ice Fields. The intricate geomorphology of the coastline, together with the freshwater inputs from the ice fields provide to the area very unique ecological characteristics and variety of habitats that favour a great marine biodiversity. A total of 60 peracarid species were identified in the area, making up for a total of 141 georeferenced records. The amphipoda were the most diverse, accounting for an 85% (52 species), followed by the isopoda (10%, 6 species) and the Tanaidacea (8%, 5 species).

Sampling Methods

The rocky sublittoral bottoms of the Channels and fjords of the BONP were sampled between January and March 2010, in two cruises onboard the vessel MV Nueva Galicia with the objective of characterizing and mapping the benthic communities. The data pertaining the mollusc faunas were published in Aldea et al. (2011), and a taxonomic study of some of the Tanaidacea species can be found in Esquete et al. (2012). A total of 23 sites were sampled with SCUBA: Samples consisted in five replicate squares of 25×25 cm (0.063 m2) that were scrapped off all the organisms (in-cluding fauna and smaller algae), but not the kelps. Two samples were taken at both 5 and 15 m depth at each site (totalling 10 squares per site).

Study Extent Bernardo O’Higgins National Park (henceforward BONP) is placed in the Chilean geopolitical regions of Aysén and Magallanes, between 48.0–51.6°S and 73.3–75.8°W, in the central part of the the Chilean Fjords and Channels Ecoregion (Spalding et al., 2007), and adjacent to the Southern Ice Fields. The intricate geomorphology of the coastline, together with the freshwater inputs from the ice fields provide to the area very unique ecological characteristics and variety of habitats that favour a great marine biodiversity (Aravena et al., 2018).

Method step description:

  1. Samples were fixed in 5% buffered formalin and subsequently sorted, preserved in 70% alcohol, and finally the organisms identified to the lowest possible taxonomic level.
