The ones outlined above are the only papers to come to the writer’s attention. S. Challenger (1872-76). The magnificent set of volumes recording the biological results of this expedition described many southern high latitude animals from the plankton and from the benthos especially in the vicinity of Kerguelen, Prince Edward Islands, the Crozets and Heard Island. The Challenger penetrated to 66’40’5 in latitude 7S022’E, the first steam vessel to cross the Antarctic Circle. The appearance of the biological results of the Challenger Expedition mark the end of a period of biological exploration that can rate as little more than preliminary skirmishing with the problem.

The two genera Haliclona (with 20 species) and Adocia (with seven species) are the best represented genera. The Poecillosclerida as might be expected, is as well represented in the Antarctic as it is elsewhere, with 124 Antarctic species grouped in 47 genera. Most of these are widely distributed genera, with strong Antarctic representation. Many are circumpolar in distribution and seem to be related to the faunas of the Falkland Islands and southern South America. Burton (1932, p. 369) brought together the available information on the breeding seasons of Antarctic sponges.

As Kennett (1968, p. 35) suggested, “A study of the distribution of calcareous and arenaceous foraminifera1 assemblages in long cores from the Ross Sea may provide evidence of the climatic history of the area ”. From his analysis of bathymetric ranges for Foraminifera from his own samples, and from those recorded by McKnight (1962) and Pflum (1963) in the Ross Sea, ranging in depth from 90 to 3 570 m Kennett (1968) noted several abrupt changes with increasing depth. These main changes occurred a t about 270, 450 to 550 m, and at 1 300 and 2 200 m.
