A critical review of representative wetland rapid assessment methods in North America
The modular approach developed in the Coastal Wetland Project of Massachusetts, Office of Coastal Zone Management emerges as the most promising one, as it allows us to combine the short-term benefits of a rapid assessment method with the precision of detailed field analysis of biogeochemical parameters that usually requires more time and financial resources.

Reproduction and growth of Euterpina acutifrons (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) under experimental conditions
The influence of food concentrations on adult life-span and reproductive activity of E. acutifrons was analyzed and a good correlation was found between concentration of algal suspension and egg production. Expand
Nitrogen cycling networks of coastal ecosystems: influence of trophic status and primary producer form
Abstract We have used ecological network analysis to compare nitrogen cycles from five well-researched coastal ecosystems. These included a representative ricefield and two lagoons (Tancada andExpand
Abundance and diversity of planktonic rotifers in the Po River
Zooplankton samples from the middle reach of the Po River were collected daily from 27 July to 24 August 1988 from a station located near Viadana. Changes in the biocoenosis structure were analyzedExpand
Feeding habits of juvenile stages of Sparus auratus L., Dicentrarchus labrax L. and Mugilidae in a brackish embayment of the Po River Delta
The composition of the stomach contents of the different fry species was analyzed in relation to the composition of some zooplankton and zoobenthos taxocoenoses in the embayment. Expand
Species diversity, spatial distribution, and assemblages of zooplankton within the Strait of Magellan in austral summer
Plankton assemblages of the Strait of Magellan seem closely linked to the remote sub-Antarctic and adjacent ocean biota, but populations may have independent evolutionary lines and population dynamics. Expand
Role of abiotic and biotic factors in structuring the metazoan plankton community in a lowland river
Water temperature, chlorophyll-a, and soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP) were found to be the most important variables in explaining the observed rotifer assemblages by Canonical Correspondence Analysis. Expand
Zooplankton variability related to environmental changes in a eutrophic coastal lagoon in the Po Delta
Zooplankton variability in a lagoon of the Po Delta, the Sacca di Goro, was studied in relation to changes in its hydrodynamic and hydrological features. From 1987 to 1992 the lagoon was affectedExpand
