Recent discovery of non-indigenous bryozoans in the fouling assemblage of Quequén Harbour (Argentina, Southwest Atlantic)
The non-indigenous bryozoans Aspidelectra melolontha and Amathia verticillata are recorded for the first time in Argentina and seems to have the ability to continue its dispersal and to become a stable component of this and neighbouring harbours. Expand
Latitudinal gradients in macroalgal biodiversity in the Southwest Atlantic between 36 and 55°S
A database summarizing the distributional ranges of macroalgae along the coast of Argentina found a clear trend of decreasing biodiversity with decreasing latitude, suggesting an upper thermal tolerance limit for most Antarctic/sub-Antarctic seaweeds. Expand
Two new species and a new genus of Calloporidae (Bryozoa: Cheilostomata) from the Southwest Atlantic.
Examination of new calloporid material from the southern Patagonian shelf revealed the existence of two new species and a new genus, deemed to include Aplousina grandipora Moyano, an allied species from the Chilean continental slope. Expand
Macrofaunal assemblages associated with coralline turf: species turnover and changes in structure at different spatial scales
Our aim was to analyse changes in species turnover and structure of macrofaunal assemblages associated with intertidal coralline algal turfs at 4 spatial scales along the coast of ArgentinaExpand
Seismic damage recognition based on field survey and remote sensing: general remarks and examples from the 2016 Central Italy earthquake
One of the most critical issues in the management of post-earthquake emergency is the prompt identification of the most damaged urban areas. Rapid detection of damage distribution is crucial forExpand
A new genus and species of cheilostome bryozoan associated with hermit crabs in the subantarctic Southwest Atlantic
Some bryozoan species occur on gastropod shells occupied by hermit crabs, often dominating the shell surface to the exclusion of other encrusters. Symbioses between bryozoans and pagurid crabs areExpand
A transferable remote sensing approach to classify building structural types for seismic risk analyses: the case of Val d'Agri area (Italy)
A transferable methodology for rapid and robust classification of building structural types (STs) in multispectral remote sensing imagery aiming to assess buildings’ seismic vulnerability is proposed and the problem of unbalanced classes is addressed. Expand
Algae as hosts for epifaunal bryozoans: Role of functional groups and taxonomic relatedness
Testing whether the taxonomic relatedness of the algal hosts and the functional groups to which they belong influence the species richness and composition of their epifaunal bryozoans found 36 algal genera from the Atlantic coast of South America to be non-significant. Expand
A New Species of Leptochiton (Polyplacophora: Leptochitonidae) from the Southwestern Atlantic
The new species has pectinated dorsal scales, with 14–21 ridges; a low number of ctenidia (up to six on each side in the largest specimens); and the second lateral tooth with three denticles in the cusp. Expand
