Intertidal macrofaunal communities in an intensely polluted estuary
Fauna on hard substrates was more diverse, while soft bottom communities exhibited a more consistent structure, which provides a reliable biomonitoring tool for assessing the effectiveness of a sewerage and remediation scheme ongoing on the river and evaluating the future use of each area in the urban development.
A Marine Biodiversity Observation Network for Genetic Monitoring of Hard-Bottom Communities (ARMS-MBON)
Marine hard-bottom communities are undergoing severe change under the influence of multiple drivers, notably climate change, extraction of natural resources, pollution and eutrophication, habitat
A census of deep-water sipunculans (Sipuncula)
The conclusion drawn from this census is that sipunculan fauna down to a depth of 2000 m is characterised as remarkably sensitive to bathymetry, with the lowest species richness values recorded in the deeper bottoms.
