The distribution and abundance of planktonic calanoid copepods were studied from samples collected at 13–20 stations during four oceanographic cruises (pre- and post- monsoons, and during northeast (NE) and southwest (SW) monsoons) performed between 1998 and 2000 in the Straits of Malacca. Space and time variations of calanoid copepods were described using(More)

The study of scyphozoan jellyfishes is crucial due to their significant influence on aquatic environments such as blooming. Species identification is the first step in prediction and management of jellyfish influences. The present paper describes the new records of four scyphozoan jellyfishes in the northern part of the Gulf of Oman. This area has(More)
A submarine pipeline, constructed in 1997–1998 to provide water to Redang Island, Malaysia traverses an area covered with corals. Biological studies were conducted before and following pipeline construction to monitor the changes in the biota at selected sites. Benthic invertebrates (including corals) were used as monitoring tools. Student's t-test and(More)
