Benthic Invertebrates in Icelandic waters more
The objectives of the Bioice program are to increase our understanding of the biodiversity and the distribution patterns of individual species that are thriving on the sea floor, in Icelandic waters.
Iceland is a part of the Greenland-Scotland Ridge, which marks boundaries between the biogeographic regions of the Arctic and the North Atlantic Boreal region. There are thus entirely different sets of species that are thriving north and south of the Greenland-Scotland Ridge.
The main objectives of Bioice are to gather comprehensive information on what species of benthic invertebrates are thriving in Icelandic waters, their physical enviroment and to promote international research on their ecology, taxonomy, systematics, and biogeography.
