Fauna of the Mediterranean Hydrozoa
This work is the most complete fauna of hydrozoans made in the Mediterranean, which includes planktonic hydromedusae, benthic polyps stages and the siphonophores. Expand
Gelatinous zooplankton assemblages associated with water masses in the Humboldt Current System, and potential predatory impact by Bassia bassensis (Siphonophora: Calycophorae)
The results indicate that B. bassensis was the most important secondary predator in the top 50 m of the water column, and could have had a significant trophic impact on the population of small copepods off the Mejillones Peninsula during the sampling period, where smallCopepods constituted 80.6% of the total mesozooplankton community.

Drifting plastic debris as a potential vector for dispersing Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) species
Macroscopic observations of floating plastic debris collected at several places along the Catalan coast showed conspicuous green-yellow patches adhered to them, which are suggested to be drifting plastic debris as a potential vector for microalgae dispersal. Expand
Is global ocean sprawl a cause of jellyfish blooms
Jellyfish (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) blooms appear to be increasing in both intensity and frequency in many coastal areas worldwide, due to multiple hypothesized anthropogenic stressors. Here, we proposeExpand
DNA Barcoding the Medusozoa using mtCOI
Intra- and inter-specific variation of the mtCOI gene for the Medusozoa are appropriate for this gene to be used as a DNA barcode for species-level identification, but not for phylogenetic analysis or taxonomic classification of unknown sequences at higher taxonomic levels. Expand
Planktonic cnidarian distribution and feeding of Pelagia noctiluca in the NW Mediterranean Sea
The temporal and spatial co-occurrence of P. noctiluca with early life stages of fish suggests that P.NoCTiluca may be an important predator on summer ichthyoplankton. Expand
Origin and biogeography of the deep-water Mediterranean Hydromedusae including the description of two new species collected in submarine canyons of Northwestern Mediterranean
Two new species of hydromedusae (Foersteria antoniae and Cunina simplex) are described from plankton collected in sediment traps placed in the Lacaze-Duthiers Submarine Canyon and alongExpand
Medusae, siphonophores and ctenophores of the Magellan region*
SUMMARY: Medusae, siphonophores and ctenophores were conspicuous and relatively abundant organisms in the Magellan Straits, Beagle Channel and adjacent waters during the “Victor Hensen” campaign inExpand
