Title: Integrative taxonomy of marine organisms: A case study of diatoms and porifera
Meeting: 3rd International Workshop “Research in Shallow Marine and Fresh Water Systems”
Location and date: Bremen, Njemačka, 14.02.-15.02.2013
Keywords: the northern Adriatic Sea; diatoms; porifera; molecular diversity; 18 S; 28S
The observation of elusive and difficult or unexplored areas is supposed to discover new species. However also rather well examined regions like e.g. the northern Adriatic Sea are spatially highly structured and diverse ecosystems containing almost unexamined mini habitats. Our examination of such mini habitats revealed an unexpected high content of species knew to the aria and new to science. We present a case study of diatoms and porifera using integrative taxonomy. Choosen taxonomic markers were the 18S and 28S rDNA sequences, morphological features that were observed with microscopic methods and in some cases ecological data. Diatom species from the northern Adriatic Sea showed a high degree of complexity in spatial and temporal distribution. However the combination of molecular and morphological as well as ecological characters delivered a more accurate and detailed view on the NA ecosystem. In searching the benthic habitats as well we also found a new sponge from the genus Clathrina. Based on molecular and morphological data we were able to characterize a novel sponge species.
