Systematic and Evolutionary Insights Derived from mtDNA COI Barcode Diversity in the Decapoda (Crustacea: Malacostraca)
Decapod biological diversity was quantified by identifying putative cryptic species allowing a rapid assessment of taxon diversity in groups that have until now received limited morphological and systematic examination.

Four seasonal sampling surveys were carried out between December 1985 and September 1986 in Canal de Mira (Ria de Aveiro, Portugal). A total of 40 sampling stations, distributed over 13 transects,…
Hydrothermal Vents and Methane Seeps: Rethinking the Sphere of Influence
Although initially viewed as oases within a barren deep ocean, hydrothermal vent and methane seep communities are now recognized to interact with surrounding ecosystems on the sea floor and in the…
Biodiversity of cold seep ecosystems along the European margins
During the European Commission's Framework Six Programme, HERMES, we investigated three main areas along the European margin, each characterized by the presence of seep-related structures exhibiting…
The amphipod Corophium multisetosum (Corophiidae) in Ria de Aveiro (NW Portugal). I. Life history and aspects of reproductive biology
The life-history pattern and reproductive features of C. multisetosum in Areão are closely related to temperature and salinity; other environmental conditions such as oxygen content of the water and food availability may also be relevant.
DNA barcoding reveals cryptic diversity in marine hydroids (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) from coastal and deep‐sea environments
The mitochondrial 16S rRNA proved to be a useful DNA ‘barcode’ gene for hydroids, not only allowing discrimination of species, but also in some cases of populations, genera and families, and their intra‐ or interphylogenetic associations.
Spatial and seasonal changes of brackish peracaridan assemblages and their relation to some environmental variables in two tidal channels of the Ria de Aveiro (NW Portugal)
The shallow-water fauna of 2 main channels in the Ria de Aveiro was sampled between June 1995 and June 1996 using a suprabenthic sled, providing an invaluable example for field studies and showing significant differences between the 2 channels.
Chemosymbiotic bivalves from the mud volcanoes of the Gulf of Cadiz, NE Atlantic, with descriptions of new species of Solemyidae, Lucinidae and Vesicomyidae
Although there is considerable similarity at the genus level between seep/mud volcano fields in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, there is little overlap at the species level, which indicates a high degree of endemism within chemosymbiotic bivalve assemblages.
