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,Expand

The distribution of chlorophyll- a and dominant planktonic components in the coastal transition zone off Concepción, central Chile, during different oceanographic conditions
Abstract The oceanographic setting and the planktonic distribution in the coastal transition zone off Concepcion (∼35–38°S, ∼73–77°W), an area characterized by its high biological production, wereExpand

Feeding ecology of dominant larval myctophids in an upwelling area of the Humboldt Current
The feeding of 2 sympatric larval myctophids, Diogenichthys laternatus and Triphoturus mexicanus aff. oculeus, was analyzed in an upwelling area off northern Chile (23° S, 71° W). Diel feedingExpand

Egg trait variation in anchoveta Engraulis ringens: a maternal response to changing environmental conditions in contrasting spawning habitats
The Engraulis ringens distribution (4 to 42° S) covers a wide variety of environmental conditions. We assessed the coping mechanisms used by this anchoveta in different spawning habi- tats, reportingExpand

UV radiation effects on the embryos of anchoveta (Engraulis ringens) and common sardine (Strangomera bentincki) off central Chile
It has been proposed that current levels of ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation could cause lethal or sublethal effects on fish embryos located in the upper layers of the water column. Observed levels ofExpand
