PELAGIC LARVAL DURATION AND MORPHOLOGY AT RECRUITMENT OF STIPHODON PERCNOPTERYGIONUS ( GOBIIDAE : SICYDIINAE )
– We examined the pelagic larval duration (PLD) of Stiphodon percnopterygionus (Gobiidae: Sicydiinae) using the sagittal otoliths of pelagic larvae, settled larvae and juveniles before or afterExpand
Reproductive biology of three amphidromous gobies, Sicyopterus japonicus, Awaous melanocephalus, and Stenogobius sp., on Okinawa Island
TLDR
Les trois especes eclosent sous la forme de petites larves peu developpees d'aspect similaire mais pouvant etre differenciees selon l'arrangement des melanophores sont tous des elements caracteristiques communs a la sous-famille des Sicydiinae. Expand
Hydrothermal sulfide-bearing Fe-Si oxyhydroxide deposits from the Coriolis Troughs, Vanuatu backarc, southwestern Pacific
Abstract The Coriolis Troughs located in the Vanuatu backarc of the southwestern Pacific consist of the Vate Trough to the north, the Erromango Basin in the middle and the Futuna Trough to the south.Expand
SIZE AND AGE AT RECRUITMENT AND SPAWNING SEASON OF SLEEPER, GENUS ELEOTRIS (TELEOSTEI: ELEOTRIDAE) ON OKINAWA ISLAND, SOUTHERN JAPAN
Prior to recruitment into streams, pelagic larvae of three Eleotris species (E. acanthopoma, E. fusca and E. melanosoma) occur in the surf zone along the coast of Okinawa Island. Their size and ageExpand
Diel and Seasonal Occurrence Patterns of Drifting Fish Larvae in the Teima Stream, Okinawa Island1
TLDR
It is suggested that larvae of amphidromous fishes spawned in freshwater streams on Okinawa Island begin to drift soon after hatching at dusk and complete their exit from freshwater areas into the estuary and sea by midnight. Expand
Pelagic larval duration of three amphidromous Sicydiinae gobies (Teleostei: Gobioidei) including widespread and endemic species
TLDR
Otolith microstructure of three Sicydiinae species was analysed and it is shown that the PLD could not explain endemism, and other elements must be taken into account to explain the differences observed in the distribution range. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal symbiosis in vitro between Tricholoma matsutake and Pinus densiflora seedlings that resembles naturally occurring ‘shiro’
TLDR
An in vitro ectomycorrhizal symbiosis between Tricholoma matsutake and Pinus densiflora was established and mycorrhiza formed in a substrate of Modified Norkrans' C medium and granite-based soil promoted the growth of plants with smaller root/shoot ratios. Expand
Instream distributions and feeding habits of two species of sleeper, Eleotris acanthopoma and Eleotris fusca, in the Teima River, Okinawa Island
TLDR
Two species of sleeper, Eleotris acanthopoma and E. fusca, were studied in the Teima River on Okinawa Island, southern Japan, and were found to coexist at the upper limit of the tidally influenced area and the lower part of the freshwater area. Expand
Fish Fauna in the Teima Stream, Okinawa Island
Diadromous life cycle and behavioural plasticity in freshwater and estuarine Kuhliidae species (Teleostei) revealed by otolith microchemistry
TLDR
The ability of otolith multi-elemental microchemistry and microstructure to provide important insights on life history traits of species that lack basic biological information, such as those in the genus Kuhlia, is demonstrated. Expand
