The humboldt current system of northern and central chile : Oceanographic processes, ecological interactions and socioeconomic feedback
Interestingly, El Nino events in northern Chile do not appear to cause a dramatic decline in primary or zooplankton production but rather a shift in species composition, which affects trophic efficiency of and interactions among higher-level consumers.
Primary production and plankton dynamics in the Reloncaví Fjord and the Interior Sea of Chiloé, Northern Patagonia, Chile
Seasonal variability in freshwater discharge and solar radiation directly affects the struc- ture and functioning of the pelagic community in Chile's northern Patagonian fjords. The input of fresh
Seasonal plankton variability in Chilean Patagonia fjords: Carbon flow through the pelagic food web of Aysen Fjord and plankton dynamics in the Moraleda Channel basin
Abstract Two research cruises ( CIMAR 13 Fiordos ) were conducted in the N–S oriented macrobasin of the Moraleda Channel (42–47°S), which includes the E–W oriented Puyuhuapi Channel and Aysen Fjord,
Plankton Dynamics in the South-Central Caribbean Sea: Strong Seasonal Changes in a Coastal Tropical System
Between September 1999 and May 2000, seasonal changes of plankton communities were assessed in two contrasting tropical systems: Salamanca Gulf and Tayrona Natural National Park at the coastal,
Is the spawning frequency dependent on female size? Empirical evidence in Sardinops sagax and Engraulis ringens off northern Chile
An analysis of the relationship between female size and spawning frequency using information from Sardinops sagax and Engraulis ringens suggest that the daily spawning fraction also increases with the average weight of mature anchovy females and that such relationship may also be described using an asymptotic model.
Environmental factors affecting the early life history of bay anchovy Anchoa mitchilli in Great South Bay, New York
For bay anchovy Anchoa m~tchilli, 3 life-history parameters were studied in Great South Bay during late spring and summer of 1987 and 1988: intensity of spawning, larval growth rates, and egg and
Larval growth of the anchoveta Engraulis ringens during the winter spawning season off central Chile
Larval growth rates of the anchoveta Engraulis ringens were de- termined for two periods during the winter spawning season off Talcahuano, central Chile. Because winter is the season of minimum
Crustacean larvae distribution in the coastal upwelling zone off Central Chile
The relationship between the timing and depth range of larval release, with larval depth distribution and behavior, and offshore transport during early upwelling season (November) and up welling reversal (March) was identified.
Land–ocean gradient in haline stratification and its effects on plankton dynamics and trophic carbon fluxes in Chilean Patagonian fjords (47–50°S)
Patagonian fjord systems, and in particular the fjords and channels associated with the Baker/Pascua Rivers, are currently under conspicuous natural and anthropogenic perturbations, where limnetic and oceanic features overlap generating strong vertical and horizontal physicochemical gradients.
