An annotated and updated checklist of the opisthobranchs (Mollusca: Gastropoda) from Spain and Portugal (including islands and archipelagos)
The present publication is a new annotated and updated checklist of the opisthobranchs (Mollusca, Gastropoda) from the Spanish and Portuguese coasts, including their Atlantic archipelagos (Azores,Expand
ENVIRONMENTALLY MEDIATED SEX CHANGE IN THE ENDANGERED LIMPET PATELLA FERRUGINEA (GASTROPODA: PATELLIDAE)
TLDR
It is indicated that sex change appears to occur at smaller sizes when large individuals (presumably females) are rare, and the fact that P. ferruginea may exhibit environmentally mediated sex change could influence population management decisions. Expand
Assessing habitat use of the endangered marine mollusc Patella ferruginea (Gastropoda, Patellidae) in northern Africa: preliminary results and implications for conservation
TLDR
The limpets were more abundant on artificial harbour stones than on natural rocky shores, and the areas under the highest human pressure were characterised by the lowest densities and the smallest specimens probably due mainly to the predation for food and fishing. Expand
Is the north side of the Strait of Gibraltar more diverse than the south side? A case study using the intertidal peracarids (Crustacea: Malacostraca) associated to the seaweed Corallina elongata
The objectives of this study were to describe the peracaridean fauna associated to the algae Corallina elongata from the Strait of Gibraltar, and explore possible biodiversity and biogeographicalExpand
Assessing pollution levels in sediments of a harbour with two opposing entrances: environmental implications.
TLDR
The design of Ceuta harbour should be taken into consideration in the design, construction and management of future harbours, with implications for sedimentary processes, levels of pollution and oxygen concentration. Expand
Ecological Analysis in a Polluted Area of Algeciras Bay (Southern Spain): External 'Versus' Internal Outfalls and Environmental Implications
The effects of organic effluents both inside and outside the Saladillo Harbour (Algeciras, southern Spain) are investigated. Although the external outfall has a greater rate of discharge, the lowExpand
Effects of environmental stress on ascidian populations in Algeciras Bay southern Spain Possible marine bioindicators
TLDR
The distribution and abundance of littoral ascidians were analyzed with respect to the possible relationships with environmental stress and some species, such as Ciona intestinalis, could be categorized as species very sensitive to stress, as well as ind~cators of good conditions. Expand
The Spatial Distribution of Caprellidea (Crustacea: Amphipoda): A Stress Bioindicator in Ceuta (North Africa, Gibraltar Area)
. The caprellid (Crustacea: Amphipoda) community associated with the alga Cystoseira usneoides (L.) Roberts 1967 was studied on a spatial scale in relation to the influence of environmental factorsExpand
Monitoring of marine benthic communities and taxonomic resolution: an approach through diverse habitats and substrates along the Southern Iberian coastline
TLDR
It is concluded that studies at the different levels of taxonomic resolution (species, family, order) lead to similar results both with regard to relative community distributions and the environmental variables associated with these. Expand
THE MOLLUSCAN EPIFAUNA OF THE ALGA HALOPTERIS SCOPARIA IN SOUTHERN SPAIN AS A BIOINDICATOR OF COASTAL ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
TLDR
The environmental parameters having the greatest effect on the molluscs associated with Halopteris scoparia are water movement, the morphological characteristics of the substrate, and most importantly the availability of food. Expand
