Sabellidae (Annelida) from the Faro coastal lake (Messina, Ionian Sea), with the first record of the invasive species Branchiomma bairdi along the Italian coast.
TLDR
M morphological and ecological observations on 4 sabellid taxa, Branchiomma bairdi , B. luctuosum , Megalomma lanigera and Myxicola sp. Expand
Key research questions of global importance for cetacean conservation
TLDR
This list of 15 themes and component questions prioritized during a dedicated workshop to identify where lack of data was hindering cetacean conservation and which questions need to be addressed most urgently is hoped to remove some of the current obstacles to science-based cetACEan conservation. Expand
The new potential invader Linopherus canariensis (Polychaeta: Amphinomidae) in a Mediterranean coastal lake: colonization dynamics and morphological remarks.
TLDR
Linopherus was found to be a new potential invader of stressed environments that is probably tied to the import of oysters and contributed significantly to the dispersion ability of this species. Expand
THE CSI OF THE FARO COASTAL LAKE (MESSINA): A NATURAL OBSERVATORY FOR THE INCOMING OF MARINE ALIEN SPECIES IL S.I.C. DEL LAGO COSTIERO DI FARO (MESSINA): UN OSSERVATORIO NATURALE DELL'ARRIVO DI
Sixteen allochthonous species of Mollusca, Crustacea Peracaridea and Annelida Polychaeta are herein reported for the first time in the marine lake of Faro (Central Mediterranean). Distinction betweenExpand
JNCC guidelines for minimising the risk of injury and disturbance to marine mammals from seismic surveys: We can do better.
TLDR
Increasing scientific recognition of the scope and magnitude of non-injurious impacts of sound on marine life has become much more widespread since the last revisions in 2010, and feasible and realistic recommendations for improvements are presented. Expand
Associated fauna of the fan shell Pinna nobilis (Mollusca: Bivalvia) in the northern and eastern Tunisian coasts
TLDR
The fan shell played an important ecological role, providing new hard substrate to colonise, increasing the spatial heterogeneity for the surrounding soft-bottom communities, and contributing to the overall increase of the local biotope complexity level. Expand
A case study of mollusc and polychaete soft-bottom assemblages submitted to sedimentary instability in the Mediterranean Sea
In the Strait of Messina (Sicily, Central Mediterranean Sea) strong tidal currents, very irregular hydrological regime and related solid load, and local seismic activity cause sediment instability;Expand
Aspects of epizoobiontic mollusc assemblages on Pinna shells. I. Composition and structure
TLDR
Multivariate analyses supported the hypothesis of a gradual multi-species differentiation between the two basibionts, with P. nobilis zoobionts more abundant and less variant in species composition, and P. rudis zoOBionts showed a wider trophic spectrum in accordance with enduring epizoophytes. Expand
Aspects of epizoobiontic mollusc assemblages on Pinna shells. II. Does the Mediterranean P. nobilis represent an isle of biodiversity
TLDR
La presence frequente des micro-gasteropodes, qui sont proches en termes de relation cladistique ainsi que de strategie trophique, peut indiquer une possible redondance specifique ou une fonctionnalite complementaire, dependante des macrophytes ephemeres. Expand
Description of a new species of Abyssoninoe (Polychaeta: Lumbrineridae) from north-east Sicily (central Mediterranean Sea)
A new species of Abyssoninoe (Polychaeta: Lumbrineridae) has been found on sublittoral soft bottoms in the Gulf of Milazzo (central Mediterranean Sea). The description is based on eleven specimensExpand
