Spatial variability of planktonic invertebrate larvae in the Canary Islands area
In October 1991, invertebrate larvae abundances were analysed to study the influence of the disturbance of the Canary Current flow by the Canary Islands archipelago on the variability of larvalExpand

Horizontal distribution of invertebrate larvae around the oceanic island of Gran Canaria: the effect of mesoscale variability
the horizontal distribution of the invertebrate larvae groups showed that the highest values of abundance occurred in an elongated zone around the island oriented in the overall direc tion of flow,Expand

Migrant biomass and respiratory carbon flux by zooplankton and micronekton in the subtropical northeast Atlantic Ocean (Canary Islands)
Abstract Diel Vertical Migration (DVM) in marine ecosystems is performed by zooplankton and micronekton, promoting a poorly accounted export of carbon to the deep ocean. Major efforts have been madeExpand

In situ video and fluorescence analysis (VFA) of marine particles: applications to phytoplankton ecological studies.
Recent advances in laser and video technologies have enabled single particles to be visualized in aqueous solution. Here, we describe a new instrument enabling the analysis of the fluorescenceExpand

Phylogenetics reveals the crustacean order Amphionidacea to be larval shrimps (Decapoda: Caridea)
We present evidence that the single representative of the crustacean order Amphionidacea is a decapod shrimp and not a distinct order. After reviewing available morphological evidence, it isExpand

Biophysical Interactions Control the Size and Abundance of Large Phytoplankton Chains at the Ushant Tidal Front
Phytoplankton blooms are usually dominated by chain-forming diatom species that can alter food pathways from primary producers to predators by reducing the interactions between intermediate trophicExpand

Description of the first five larval stages of Plesionika narval (Fabricius, 1787) (Crustacea, Decapoda, Pandalidae) obtained under laboratory conditions.
The first five zoeal stages of Plesionika narval were obtained from 15 days of laboratory culture. All larval stages are described and illustrated in detail. Zoeal characters are compared with theExpand

Temporal and alongshore distribution of decapod larvae in the oceanic island of Gran Canaria (NW Africa)
Larval transport strongly influences neritic populations of oceanic islands. We investigated the spatial-temporal variability of the assemblage of decapod larvae at the shelf edge off Gran CanariaExpand

Abundance, development stage, and size of decapod larvae through the Bering and Chukchi Seas during summer
Crustacean decapods are key components that structure the benthic ecosystems in the Subarctic/Arctic regions and support one of the largest fishery industries, but their larval dynamics are largelyExpand

Colonization patterns of decapods into artificial collectors: seasonality between habitat patches
Understanding colonization of new habitats by recruits is essential to comprehend local abundance patterns of adult populations. Colonization of benthic habitats by new colonizers is achieved throughExpand
