On abyssal plains, demersal fish are believed to play an important role in transferring energy across the seafloor and between the pelagic and benthic realms. However, little is known about their spatial distributions, making it difficult to quantify their ecological significance. To address this, we employed an autonomous underwater vehicle to conduct an(More)

Abstract A time series from 1977–1989 and 2000–2002 of scientific trawl surveys in the Porcupine Seabight and adjacent Abyssal Plain of the NE Atlantic was analysed to assess changes(More)
The phenotypic plasticity of the muscle performance and locomotory physiology of a wide phylogenetic range of eurythermal vertebrates allows the maintenance of essential activity capacity in the face of environmental change. This study used the scallop, Aequipecten opercularis, as a model eurythermal invertebrate. Animals caught in different seasons(More)
An experimental group of seven nonparanoid schizophrenic adults was given eight weeks of sensory-stimulating treatment, while a control group of seven similar subjects was given eight weeks of sedentary activities. Three components of language, in response to 16 questions, were measured pre- and post-treatment: number of words used, speed of response, and(More)
