The Black Sea — A Recipient, Donor and Transit Area for Alien Species
There is evidence of large-scale biological contamination of the Black Sea ecosystem by nonindigenous species: benthic communities are mostly altered in the western and northwestern parts of the Sea,Expand
Review of the biogeography of Artemia Leach, 1819 (Crustacea: Anostraca) in Russia
The present work consists of a short review of the distribution and biology of Artemia in Russia and suggests that the origin of all Artemia species in Eurasia resulted from the division of the ancient Tethys Ocean into the Mediterranean Sea and the Paratethys. Expand
Chironomidae larvae in hypersaline waters of the Crimea: diversity, distribution, abundance and production
Chironomidae larvae may represent more than 70% of total Arthropoda numbers in hypersaline waters and nonlinear dependence of chironomid abundance from salinity was observed; maximum abundance was at salinity levels of between 150 and 170 g/L. Expand
The political decision caused the drastic ecosystem shift of the Sivash Bay (the Sea of Azov)
Abstract Political and economic decisions have led to more drastic changes of aquatic ecosystems, than those caused by hydrological extremes (drought, floods). Examples of this are twoExpand
Does salinity change determine zooplankton variability in the saline Qarun Lake (Egypt)?
Zooplankton and 14 abiotic variables were studied during August 2011 at 10 stations in Lake Qarun, Egypt. Stations with the lowest salinity and highest nutrient concentrations and turbidity wereExpand
[Effect of abiotic and biotic factors on the structural and functional organization of the saline lake ecosystems in Crimea].
Comparison of total amount of rations of zooplankton and macrozoobenthos with amount of primary production indicates intense trophic interactions in the lakes under study. Expand
Current Invasions of Asian Cyclopid Species (Copepoda: Cyclopidae) in Crimea, with Taxonomical and Zoogeographical Remarks on the Hypersaline and Freshwater Fauna
Species accumulation curves showed that significantly larger sampling efforts could yield a total of 6–8 species in the hypersaline waters and 47–50 species in all types of continental waters of Crimea. Expand
Long-term changes of physicochemical parameters and benthos in Lake Qarun (Egypt): Can we make a correct forecast of ecosystem future?
Biotic changes and a salinity increase (from 13 to 40 g.L-1 ) occurred in Lake Qarun (Egypt) since 1901. Was salinity increasing a cause of observed biotic changes? To answer this question we usedExpand
History of research on biodiversity in Crimean hypersaline waters
It has been concluded that the diversity of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms is still understudied. Expand
