Feeding habits of the seahorse Hippocampus patagonicus in San Antonio Bay (Patagonia, Argentina)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the dietary composition of the Patagonian seahorse Hippocampus patagonicus in San Antonio Bay, Patagonia, Argentina. To this end, analyses of stomach and gutExpand
Genetic evidence and new morphometric data as essential tools to identify the Patagonian seahorse Hippocampus patagonicus (Pisces, Syngnathidae).
A genetic study to support morphometric analyses was used to improve the description and validate the Patagonian seahorse Hippocampus patagonicus (Syngnathidae) on the basis of a large number ofExpand
Growth and life span of the small octopus Octopus tehuelchus in San Matías Gulf (Patagonia): three decades of study
Phenotypic plasticity in response to environmental variability is one of the main characteristics of cephalopods. This study compares growth and life span of Octopus tehuelchus in different coastalExpand
Transgressive dunefield landforms and vegetation associations, Doña Juana, Veracruz, Mexico
Transgressive dune fields often comprise a multiplicity of landforms where vegetation processes largely affect landform dynamics, which in turn, also affect vegetation processes. These associationsExpand
Reproductive traits of the small Patagonian octopus Octopus tehuelchus
This study evaluated the reproductive features of Octopus tehuelchus in three coastal environments of San Matías Gulf (Patagonia). Monthly samples of O. tehuelchus were used to estimate size atExpand
Seasonal density and distribution of Octopus tehuelchus in the intertidal of North Patagonia
The abundance and distribution of coastal cephalopods are strongly influenced by the environmental conditions. This study evaluates the seasonal distribution and density of Octopus tehuelchus inExpand
Prey selectivity and trophic behavior of the Patagonian seahorse, Hippocampus patagonicus, in captivity.
This study aims at evaluating the Patagonian seahorse, Hippocampus patagonicus, feeding behavior in captivity with regard to type and size of prey selectivity and time-investment-related activitiesExpand
Marine Protected Areas: reserve effect or natural variability? The Patagonian octopus case
Population characteristics can be influenced by specific factors of the habitat and the natural variability of populations can confuse the effect related to protected environments. This studyExpand
Spatial patterns of the Argentine hake Merluccius hubbsi and oceanographic processes in a semi-enclosed Patagonian ecosystem
Abstract Time-series of fishing position, landings, satellite-derived sea-surface temperature and chlorophyll a concentrations were used to relate the spatial–temporal distribution of the ArgentineExpand
Effects of competition and egg predation on shelter use by Octopus tehuelchus females
Parental care in the ocean ranges from provision to eggs and embryos to protection from predators. In particular, nest attendance has several benefits associated with relatively higher survivalExpand
