Comparative marine biodiversity and depth zonation in the Southern Ocean: evidence from a new large polychaete dataset from Scotia and Amundsen seas

first_imgBased on a dataset of 16,991 and 307 morphospecies of polychaete worms collected from 58 epibenthic sledge deployments across the Scotia and Amundsen Seas, we show that the structures of their shelf, deep-shelf and slope communities are composed of distinct polychaete assemblages spanning regions with “high”, “intermediate”, and “low” biodiversity. Depth has been identified as the main factor structuring the polychaete communities in both seas, countering the prevalent notion of extended eurybathy of the Southern Ocean benthos. From an evolutionary perspective, this strong dissimilarity between shelf and slope fauna could be interpreted as evidence for survival in shelf refugias, rather than migration into deeper waters during glacial maxima. The previously unsampled Amundsen Sea is shown to be diverse, harbouring a high level of taxonomic novelty, with many species new to science. The polychaete community of the inner shelf in the Amundsen Sea (Pine Island Bay) has also been shown to be of deep-sea character, likely due to intrusion of the Circumpolar Deep Water onto the shelf. In the Scotia Sea, our data support the notion of relatively high biodiversity of waters around the South Orkney Islands, South Georgia, and Shag Rocks (all recently established as Marine Protected Areas) and depressed diversity in the extreme environment of Southern Thule.last_img read more

Memories of Lesotho 2007 as Uganda Cranes encounter Force Majeure again

first_img DR Congo9623186+2  Uganda11632183+5 2007: FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa and Uganda’s new German Cranes coach share a light moment before the Lesotho game in 2007. FILE PHOTOS NEW VISIONExactly 10 years ago, Ugandan football came face to face for the first time in a big way with the clause Force Majeure.The Uganda Cranes had arrived in full force in the South African state of Lesotho for a make-or-break match. Having beaten Lesotho 3-0 in Kampala on September 2, 2006, Uganda looked a good bet to snatch all three points June 17, 2007 in the away match.The mathematics in the group meant that while Nigeria looked set to top the group, victory in Lesotho would give Uganda Cranes the points needed to advance as the second best team to the 2008 Nations Cup finals.Ugandan football was riding a new wave 2006-2007, with FUFA President Lawrence Mulindwa leading a drive to break the Nations Cup jinx, for Cranes had last appeared at the finals in 1978.Uganda had recently brought in a foreign coach, German-Hungarian Laszlo Csaba, and had just beaten Nigeria 2-1 at Namboole with goals from David Obua and captain Ibrahim Sekagya.Because of  difficult travel plans, Uganda would travel to face “tiny” Lesotho without Obua and Sekagya.Csaba however still had a strong team. This was his starting line up: D. Onyango, S. Masaba, N. Kizito,T. Batabaire, A. Mwesigwa, J. Bagoole, A. Bajope, D. Wagaluka, G. Massa, G. Serunkuma, A. Kadogo.Mbidde led the fans to Lesotho June 2007Save Uganda Soccer’s Dennis Mbidde, Aldrine Nsubuga and Fred Muwema had led the drive to oust Denis Obua as FUFA head, and had joined the new Mulindwa and Moses Magogo team, giving fans a lot of hope.Mbidde, in charge of FUFA marketing, led travelling Uganda fans who had paid Shs2 million each, to Cranes base in South Africa, then they crossed over to Lesotho for the game. Hours to the match, it was revealed the Sunday June 17 game had to be postponed because the referees could not fly in on time for kick off!CAF mentioned their Force Majeure and it hit the headlines in the Ugandan media.The Force Majeure clause is a contract provision that allows a party to suspend or terminate the performance of its obligations when circumstances beyond their control arise, making performance inadvisable, commercially impracticable, illegal, or impossible.In football, it is included for exceptional circumstances when a football match may not be played.Tanzanian match officials Victor Mwandike, Charles Ndagala and Hamis Changwalu were held up inJohannesburg for lack of South African visas.The change left hundreds of Ugandan supporters mainly from Lesotho and neighbouring Southern African states disappointed as they would not be able to watch the game mid-week.FUFA Lawyer Muwema then got busy as Uganda prepared to play under protest. An appeal against the circumstances of the decision was prepared but there was fear that if Lesotho was knocked out of the group, Uganda would not get the three points anyway. The group would then not qualify to vie for the best runner up slots in the 2008 qualification.Group 3, 2008 qualifiers TeamPtsPldWDLGFGAGD Best runners up, 2008 qualifiers  Uganda11632183+5  Equatorial Guinea10631267-1 TeamPtsPldWDLGFGAGD  Mauritania76213910-1  South Africa116321104+6  Tunisia136411123+9center_img  Niger46114511-6 The change in kick-off date clearly upset the Ugandans, and it showed on the pitch. Key marksman Geoffrey Massa missed chance after chance, and the game ended goalless. Not the result Uganda had travelled for, especially as it emerged Nigeria had won 3-1 away in Niger, and had virtually secured top spot.At the end of the qualification run, Tunisia snatched one of the three places reserved for the best group runners-up with 13 points, with Uganda losing out on the other two places on goal difference.Fast forward to 2017, the circumstances are different in many ways this time, with Uganda actually benefiting from the Force Majeure clause.Moses Magogo is now president of FUFA, Mbidde is leader of delegation – fresh from a war of words with his former boss Mulindwa, and Cranes are fresh from a Nations Cup finals appearance.Uganda’s players have travelled to Cape Verde in batches, and the last one was delayed.The CAF statement below explains the circumstances:The‎ Group L Day One clash between Cape Verde and Uganda, originally scheduled for Saturday, 10 June 2017 in Praia has been postponed for 24 hours.  The decision was taken by the Organising Committee for the Total Africa Cup of Nations due to the difficulties faced by the Ugandan team in arriving in Praia. The ‎flight of the Ugandan team didnot take-off as expected from Dakar (Senegal), where they held a training camp due to a technical problem, which constitutes a case of force majeure. The match will therefore take place on Sunday, 11 June 2017 at the same‎ time and venue with the same officials.A clear case of Force Majeure!But the story might not be over, as Uganda is again grouped with Lesotho in the 2019 Nations Cup final qualifiers that got underway this weekend.*** Sources New Vision, Wikepedia  Benin116321104+6  Mozambique9623154+1  Eritrea9623158-3  Lesotho4611439-6  Algeria86222660  Nigeria156501103+7 Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Pressure on Pepe and Lacazette with Aubameyang suspended, says Arteta

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp “Probably the most important player is missing so it is not nice, but we have other players who can play in that position and we will find a way and be as competitive as possible.”Arteta’s alternative would be to call on younger players such as Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli, who is Arsenal’s second top goalscorer this season with a tally of eight, although the majority of them have occurred in cup competitions.Another alternative is the talented Eddie Nketiah, who returned early from his loan spell at Championship side Leeds having failed to secure regular first team football.“At the moment we have to think mid-to-long term with Eddie,” he said.“We have to respect his evolution and development and we don’t have to make a decision just based on two or three games.” Alexandre LacazetteLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  The pressure is on record signing Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette to score goals with Arsenal’s leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suspended for three matches, according to manager Mikel Arteta.Aubameyang took his tally to 16 goals in all competitions this season in the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday but was also sent off, earning the suspension at a critical time for the Premier League side.The dropped points leave the Gunners 11 points adrift of a Champions League spot next season and only seven points clear of the relegation places.Hence Arteta’s call for both Pepe and Lacazette especially to be more clinical in front of goal for the three matches which will not feature Aubameyang.They host sixth-placed Sheffield United next weekend and also have a tricky league match with Chelsea as well as an FA Cup fourth round tie away at out of form Bournemouth.Pepe has yet to live up to his £72 million ($93 million) fee scoring just five times this term while Lacazette has six goals to his name, but has not found the net in six matches since scoring in the Europa League match with Standard Liege on December 12.“They have to make a step forward now,” said Arteta.“If he (Aubameyang) is not able to contribute to the team with goals like this, then someone else has to do it and I want to see that reaction too.last_img read more
