The Sponge Population of the Cabrera Archipelago (Balearic Islands): Characteristics, Distribution, and Abundance of the Most Representative Species
. The abundance, distribution, and species richness of the littoral sponges (0–55 m) from the Cabrera Archipelago (Balearic Islands) were studied along light gradients from the surface to the seaExpand
Excavating and endolithic sponge species (Porifera) from the Mediterranean: species descriptions and identification key
Abstract The present study is a review of the excavating and endolithic sponges present in the Mediterranean. A dichotomic key to 22 species is presented. Detailed species descriptions are providedExpand
Infestation by excavating sponges on the oyster ( Ostrea edulis ) populations of the Blanes littoral zone (north-western Mediterranean Sea)
In order to estimate the degree of implantation of excavating sponges in the oyster populations from the littoral zone at Blanes (north-western Mediterranean Sea), a representative sample of oystersExpand
Relationships of biological and taxonomic characteristics to chemically mediated bioactivity in Mediterranean littoral sponges
The aim of this study was to detect relationships of bioactive properties (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral antimitotic and cytotoxic activities) of Mediterranean littoral sponges with some ofExpand

Morphological and ecological relationships of two clionid sponges
Abstract Cliona vastifica and Cliona lobata, collected from 90–330 m depth, were found excavating shells of Glycimeris glycimeris and Pecten magellanicus (Mollusca, Bivalvia) off the coast ofBlanesExpand
Parasitism, commensalism or mutualism? The case of Scyphozoa (Coronatae) and horny sponges
This study was supported by Project CICYT MAR91-0528 (Marine Resources and Aquaculture National Program) and a 'Generalitat de Catalunya' fellowship.
Phylogenetic Relationships within the Excavating Hadromerida (Porifera), with a Systematic Revision
Abstract This study was performed to ascertain the relationships among clionid and spirastrellid species from the Mediterranean Sea, based on phylogenetic criteria. A matrix of 34 taxa and 20Expand
Do associated zooxanthellae and the nature of the substratum affect survival, attachment and growth of Cliona viridis (Porifera: Hadromerida)? An experimental approach
Massive specimens of Cliona viridis, collected off the coast of Blanes (North-Western Mediterranean Sea) in January 1987, were exposed to different light (natural day-night irradiance/constantExpand
Sponges from bathyal depths (1000-1750 m) in the western Mediterranean Sea
This note deals with a study of sponge fauna at seven deep stations (1000–1750 m) in the Western Mediterranean Sea. The species found exhibit a broad geographical distribution, mainly centred in theExpand
