Nyctiphanes couchii as intermediate host for the acanthocephalan Bolbosoma balaenae in temperate waters of the NE Atlantic.
Taxonomic affiliation of parasites and trophic ecology in the sampling area suggest that N. couchii is the intermediate host for B. balenae, and it is suggested that the whales Balaenoptera physalus and B. acutorostrata are its definitive hosts.
Morphological and genetic evidence that Octopus vulgaris Cuvier, 1797 inhabits Amsterdam and Saint Paul Islands (southern Indian Ocean)
The coastal octopus at Saint Paul and Amsterdam Islands is Octopus vulgaris Cuvier 1797, and the range of the species is expanded to include the oceanic islands of the central southern Indian Ocean.
Morphological assessment of the Octopus vulgaris species complex evaluated in light of molecular‐based phylogenetic inferences
The hypothesis that multiple O vulgaris‐like species are currently being incorrectly treated under a single species name, O. vulgaris, is supported.
Short-term meso-scale variability of mesozooplankton communities in a coastal upwelling system (NW Spain)
Abstract The short-term, meso-scale variability of the mesozooplankton community present in the coastal upwelling system of the Ria de Vigo (NW Spain) has been analysed. Three well-defined
Life strategies of cephalopod paralarvae in a coastal upwelling system (NW Iberian Peninsula): insights from zooplankton community and spatio‐temporal analyses
The early life stages of cephalopods - octopods, squids, sepiolids and ommastrephids -, are uncommon in zooplankton samples and little is known about their life strategies. Accordingly, cephalopod
Nyctiphanes couchii as intermediate host for Rhadinorhynchus sp. (Acanthocephala, Echinorhynchidae) from NW Iberian Peninsula waters.
The morphological and phylogenetic analyses suggested that the status of Rhadinorhynchus pristis should be re-examined and the presence of these cystacanths in different mesozooplankton communities throughout the study suggests that the recruitment of parasites may be affected by the oceanography.
New insights into the morphology, reproduction and distribution of the large-tuberculate octopus Graneledone macrotyla from the Patagonian slope
The simultaneous occurrence of oocyte cohorts at different oogenic stages suggests that the large-tuberculate octopus Graneledone macrotyla is a multiple spawner.
Diet Composition and Variability of Wild Octopus vulgaris and Alloteuthis media (Cephalopoda) Paralarvae: a Metagenomic Approach
The results provide new clues about dietary preferences of wild cephalopod paralarvae, thus opening up new scenarios for research on trophic ecology and digestive physiology under controlled conditions.
Anisakis simplex complex (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in zooplankton communities from temperate NE Atlantic waters
The euphausiid Nyctiphanes couchii and an unidentified mysid have been found, for the first time, with third-stage larvae (L3) of the Anisakis simplex complex in the mesozooplanktonic community of
You Are What You Eat: A Genomic Analysis of the Gut Microbiome of Captive and Wild Octopus vulgaris Paralarvae and Their Zooplankton Prey
A comprehensive overview of the bacterial communities inhabiting the gastrointestinal tract of O. vulgaris paralarvae is provided, and new research lines to challenge the current bottlenecks preventing sustainable octopus aquaculture are revealed.
