Reef-dwelling Holothuroidea (Echinodermata) of the Spermonde Archipelago (South-West Sulawesi, Indonesia)
During a survey at the Spermonde Archipelago (22.viii-5.x.1994) 56 holothurian species were collected; ten are new to the fauna of Indonesia and one is new to science: Stichopus quadrifasciatus spec.Expand
Spatial variability of epifaunal communities from artificial habitat: Shipwrecks in the Southern Bight of the North Sea
We investigated the cover, community structure and abiotic environment of nine shipwrecks lying at increasing distance from the Belgian coast. Results indicated that all shipwrecks were stronglyExpand
Artificial hard substrata from the Belgian part of the North Sea and their influence on the distributional range of species
A comprehensive list of the macrospecies recorded on ten shipwrecks from the Belgian Part of the North Sea is presented, with a total of 12 southern species presented an extension of their known geographical range to the North. Expand
Temporal variation of Tubularia indivisa (Cnidaria, Tubulariidae) and associated epizoites on artificial habitat communities in the North Sea
The conclusion that shipwrecks in Belgian waters allow the development of assemblages dominated by a high biomass of T. indivisa which in turn provides shelter for high densities and biomass of epizoites is supported. Expand
Results of the Rumphius Biohistorical Expedition to Ambon (1990) Part. 4. The Holothurioidea (Echinodermata) collected at Ambon during the Rumphius Biohistorical Expedition
During the Rumphius Biohistorical Expedition (4.xi-14.xii.l990) 52 specimens representing 27 holothurian species were collected, and six species are new to the fauna of Ambon; two of these arenew to thefauna of Indonesia and two are new species: Afrocucumis stracki and Chiridota smirnovi. Expand
Epifaunal Inventory of Two Shipwrecks from the Belgian Continental Shelf
Shipwrecks are almost the only subtidal substrata available for epifaunal colonization along the Belgian coastal waters and have never been scientifically prospected up to now. Two shipwrecks haveExpand
The fine structure of the buccal tentacles of Holothuria forskali (Echinodermata, Holothuroidea)
It is suggested that the buccal tentacles of H. forskali are sensory organs that would recognize the organically richest areas of the sediment surface through the chemosensitive abilities of their apical buds. Expand
