Abstract

Early essays on the regionalization of the marine fauna were made by Dana (1853), Forbes (1856), and in reference to mollusks, by Woodward (1856) in his Manual of Conchology. Lately, several authors improved the knowledge of the global distributional patterns of the marine organisms; Briggs (1995) among others offered a synthesis. A tripartite scheme is usually accepted today, being recognized the Brazilian, Argentinean and Magellan provinces.
