Abstract: The Southern Ocean and Antarctica have been the focus of intense scientific study during the 20th century. But much scientific works has been accorded to oceanography and marine sciences than to terrestrial and lacustrine fauna of Antarctica. From the French Coquille expedition (1922-1925) to early 1990, it has been observed that, scientific research of Antarctic invertebrate fauna mostly restricted with their taxonomy, physiology, ecology and biology. It has also been observed that, maximum studies and publications have been made from maritime and sub-Antarctic Islands in contrast to East Antarctica and particularly the Schirmacher oaisis. The trends of scientific research mostly conducted on the responses of organisms to long-term environmental change.
