Effects of Experimental Otter Trawling on Surficial Sediment Properties of a Sandy‐Bottom Ecosystem on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland
We conducted a 3-year experiment on the effects of otter trawling on benthic habitat and communities on a sandy-bottom ecosystem of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland that has supported commercial

Abstract Wismar Bay is a shallow coastal embayment in the Western Baltic Sea which is polluted by various industries. Macrobenthos data collected between 1986–91 are examined for qualitative and
A Review of the Species of Geraeus Pascoe and Linogeraeus Casey Found in the Continental United States (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Baridinae)
The baridine weevils with a smooth inner mandibular face and unmodified antenna are reviewed for the continental United States and several species appear to have been dispersed by man since the early 1900s, but lack of taxonomic expertise prevented the systematic monitoring of their range expansions.
Effects of experimental otter trawling on the macrofauna of a sandy bottom ecosystem on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland
A 3-year otter trawling experiment was conducted on a deepwater (120-146 m) sandy bottom ecosystem on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland that had not experienced trawling for at least 12 years. The
Life history and larval morphology of Eurhinus magnificus Gyllenhal (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), a new weevil to the United States.
The pre-imaginal life stages of E. magnificus are described for the first time and Predators and pathogens appeared to be responsible for considerable mortality in the field; there was no evidence of parasitism of any of the life stages.
Effects of eutrophication on macrobenthos zonation in Wismar Bay (Western Baltic Sea)
To evaluate the current status of Wismar Bay, the distribution of macrobenthos is analysed and compared to that of other coastal regions in the Western and Southern Baltic Sea. Although salinity
Larval lobster (Homarus americanus) distribution and drift in the vicinity of the Gulf of Maine offshore banks and their probable origins
Examination of weather records prior to and during the 1988 and 1989 sampling periods indicates that winds were not of sufficient intensity and duration to induce larval transport off Georges Bank, which supports the possibility that wind and eddy events may be important in the transport of stage III and IV lobsters off ofGeorges Bank.
Odontocorynus Schonherr is reviewed and transferred from Madopterini, Zygobaridina to Madarini, Leptoschoinina (new placement), and the following new synonymies are proposed.
Non-target plant use by a weed biocontrol agent in idaho: host expansion or opportunistic behavior?
Larinus curtus Hochhuth was first introduced into the western United States from Greece for the biological control of yellow starthistle (YST), Centaurea solstitialis L., in 1992 but this weevil might be expanding its host range to include a non-target crop species closely related to YST.
A synopsis of the orchid weevil genus Orchidophilus Buchanan (Curculionidae, Baridinae), with taxonomic rectifications and description of one new species
Six species of the weevil genus Orchidophilus Buchanan are recognized: O. aterrimus (Waterhouse), O. peregrinator Buchanan, O. ran Morimoto and O. insidiosus Prena sp.
