In-water and dry-dock hull fouling assessments reveal high risk for regional translocation of nonindigenous species in the southwestern Atlantic
To assess the potential of domestic traffic for the regional spread of nonindigenous species (NIS), we surveyed the hull of an oceanographic vessel serving routes in the southwestern Atlantic and
State of the art of the meiofauna of Brazilian Sandy Beaches
No Brasil, os estudos da meiofauna iniciaram em meados do seculo passado, com enfoque puramente taxonomico e voltado para a descricao de especies de diferentes grupos zoologicos. Apos essa fase
First record of the taxon Echinopsyllus (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Ancorabolidae) from the deep sea of Campos Basin, Brazil, with the description of three new species and their contribution to
TLDR
The discovery of new species of Echinopsyllus extends the distributional range of the genus to the southern hemisphere and is further evidence for the formerly unexpected wide genus-level distribution of Ancorabolidae in the world's oceans.
SPATIO-TEMPORAL STUDY AND POPULATION STRUCTURE OF DAPTONEMA OXYCERCA (NEMATODA: XYALIDAE) IN COROA GRANDE, RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL*
Daptonema oxycerca was originally described from the North Sea and, up to now, nothing is known of this species in tropical regions. The spatio-temporal distribution and the population structure of
Population structure of Comesoma arenae Gerlach (Nematoda, Comesomatidae) in a Brazilian tropical tidalflat, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
The species showed its highest population densities during the colder months and most individuals in the population were adults, of which non-ovigerous females were the most abundant.
Distributional patterns of deep-sea representatives of Ancorabolidae and Argestidae (Crustacea: Copepoda)
TLDR
The body of Argestidae is of compact, cylindrical shape whereas the body of Ancorabolidae appears to be more delicate through conspicuous processes on all body somites, indicating different life styles and needs to the habitat in the two families.
Integrating of the seahorse Hippocampus reidi in multi-trophic organic farms of oysters and shrimp: Effects of density and diet
TLDR
The present study confirms the technical feasibility of organic multi-trophic seahorse production in net cages and shows that even at the highest density tested the seahorses grew well and could generate high profits.
Population structure of Oncholaimus cobbi (Nematoda: Oncholaimidae) in a tropical tidal flat
TLDR
The species reached its highest population density during the warmest months, and the highest densities of males and ovigerous females were seen in February 1999.
