Systematic and Evolutionary Insights Derived from mtDNA COI Barcode Diversity in the Decapoda (Crustacea: Malacostraca)
TLDR
Decapod biological diversity was quantified by identifying putative cryptic species allowing a rapid assessment of taxon diversity in groups that have until now received limited morphological and systematic examination. Expand
The ocean sampling day consortium
TLDR
This commentary outlines the establishment, function and aims of the Ocean Sampling Day Consortium and describes the vision for a sustainable study of marine microbial communities and their embedded functional traits. Expand
THE TANAIDACEANS (ARTHROPODA: PERACARIDA: TANAIDACEA) OF SÃO MIGUEL, AZORES, WITH DESCRIPTION OF TWO NEW SPECIES, AND A NEW RECORD FROM TENERIFE
TLDR
An attempt is made to investigate the provenance of the Azorean tanaidacean fauna, although the general lack of data from the North-east Atlantic precludes any reasonable interpretation other than some possible links with the Mediterranean. Expand
Geographic Information System in a Multi-Criteria Tool for Mariculture Site Selection
The continuous growth in fish consumption and related activities is stressing the fishing industry worldwide. To counteract this, mariculture might represent an opportunity for consumers, industryExpand
EXPLOITATION AND CONSERVATION OF ECHINODERMS
TLDR
The demands on echinoderms from commercial fisheries, aquarium and souvenir trades, as part of the global search for bioactive compounds from marine organisms, and as experimental models in evolution and toxicology are summarized, and the urgent need for an integrated global strategy for their protection and conservation is highlighted. Expand
Experimental studies on the effect of food in early larvae of the cleaner shrimp Lysmata amboinensis (De Mann, 1888) (Decapoda: Caridea: Hippolytidae)
TLDR
Results showed that enriched rotifers result in higher larval survival during the first days of life when compared with larvae fed with non-enriched rotifer and that survival is not dependent on the relation between larval density and food concentration. Expand
Causes of spatial distribution of subfossil diatom and chironomid assemblages in surface sediments of a remote deep island lake
Until recently, the distribution of diatom and chironomid assemblages and their attributes (species richness/diversity) in relation to water depth and sedimentary environments have been identifiedExpand
Echinoderms from Azores islands: an unexpected source of antibiotic resistant Enterococcus spp. and Escherichia coli isolates.
The prevalence of antibiotic resistance and the implicated mechanisms of resistance were evaluated in Enterococcus spp. and Escherichia coli, isolated from a total of 250 faecal samples ofExpand
