Juvenile recruitment, growth and maturation of Lipophrys pholis (Pisces: Blenniidae), from the west coast of Portugal
Data on the juvenile recruitment, growth and size at maturation of Lipophrys pholis in Portuguese waters are compared with the information available on the biology of this species at higherExpand
The science of European marine reserves: Status, efficacy, and future needs
The ecologically and socio-economically important marine ecosystems of Europe are facing severe threats from a variety of human impacts. To mitigate and potentially reverse some of these impacts, theExpand
Patterns of diversity of the north-eastern Atlantic blenniid fish fauna (Pisces: Blenniidae)
This paper presents an analysis of the distributional patterns of blenniids (Pisces: Blenniidae) in the north-eastern Atlantic. Two peaks of species diversity were found, both in terms of number ofExpand
Embryonic and larval development of Lipophrys pholis (Pisces: Blenniidae)*
TLDR
This paper describes for the first time the full developmental sequence from egg to juvenile in controlled conditions of Lipophrys pholis, and some notes on the spawning behaviour of adults and the behaviour of larvae are provided. Expand
Courting females: ecological constraints affect sex roles in a natural population of the blenniid fish Salaria pavo
TLDR
Evidence for ecological modulation of sex roles in a natural population of the blenniid fish Salaria pavo (Risso) is presented, where nest sites are very scarce, courtship is almost entirely initiated by females, and both male and female intra-sexual competition occurs. Expand
Sex Differences in the Dorsolateral Telencephalon Correlate with Home Range Size in Blenniid Fish
TLDR
The results suggest that the DLv is involved in spatial abilities in blenniid fish and that sexual selection may be promoting this divergence as already described for mammals and birds. Expand
Female mimicry as a mating tactic in males of the blenniid fish Salaria pavo
TLDR
Evidence for female mimicry in a population of Salaria pavo (Pisces: Blenniidae) is presented, finding a proportion of smaller and younger males that are almost identical to females both in morphology and behaviour. Expand
Early reserve effects linked to small home ranges of a commercial fish, Diplodus sargus, Sparidae
TLDR
The results show that even small, recently established coastal MPAs can increase the abundance and biomass of commercial fish species, provided that target species have small home ranges and exhibit high site fidelity. Expand
USE OF A TEMPERATE REEF-FISH COMMUNITY TO IDENTIFY PRIORITIES IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A MARINE PROTECTED AREA
Few studies have dealt with biodiversity, composition and dynamics of temperate reef fish. The present study area is a 25 km stretch of coastline (53 km 2 ) on the west Portuguese coast that hasExpand
