2006 Antarctica Cruise


May 9th -  June 14th 2006

Ship in Antarctic

A group of scientists studying the biology of marine invertebrate animals will board the ship R/V Laurence M. Gould and embark on a four-week voyage through Argentine and Antarctic waters. During the cruise they will examine invertebrates (animals without backbones) which live in the water column and on the ocean’s bottom. The team will explore how larval forms might disperse between South America and Antarctica, and if there is unrecognized genetic variation in marine Antarctic species.
