Stress tolerance of a subtropical Crassostrea virginica population to the combined effects of temperature and salinity
TLDR
The approach used a multidimensional response surface design to study the effects of temperature and salinity on sublethal measures of oyster performance and showed that there was a greater ability to withstand extreme salinity conditions at lower temperatures. Expand
SUITABILITY OF THREE STAINS TO MARK SHELLS OF CONCHOLEPAS CONCHOLEPAS (GASTROPODA) AND MESODESMA DONACIUM (BIVALVIA)
TLDR
Calcein was the best growth marker for both species because it produced bright, long-lasting bands even at low concentrations and immersion times without detectable lethal or sublethal effects. Expand
Distribution and composition of macrozoobenthic communities along a Victoria-Land Transect (Ross Sea, Antarctica)
TLDR
Abundance and biomass proportions of major taxa changed gradually along the latitudinal transect and total number of abundance decreased with depth with an exception at Cape Russell, whereas a trend in biomass was not documented. Expand
Biodiversity change after climate-induced ice-shelf collapse in the Antarctic
The marine ecosystem on the eastern shelf of the Antarctic Peninsula was surveyed 5 and 12 years after the climate-induced collapse of the Larsen A and B ice shelves. An impoverished benthic faunaExpand
Oxygen microoptodes: a new tool for oxygen measurements in aquatic animal ecology
TLDR
The results suggest that oxygen optodes are a reliable tool for oxygen measurements beyond the methodological limits of traditional methods. Expand
Age and productivity of the Antarctic scallop, Adamussium colbecki, in Terra Nova Bay (Ross Sea, Antarctica)
TLDR
The annual formation of shell growth bands visible on x-ray photographs was verified by stable isotope analyzis and it is likely that A. colbecki is likely to play a significant role in the trophic web of Terra Nova Bay. Expand
Growth efficiency and temperature in scallops: a comparative analysis of species adapted to different temperatures
TLDR
There is strong empirical evidence that elevated temperature constrains growth efficiency in scallops and that adaptation does not fully compensate for this effect, and SMRAvg-to-OGP is an inverse proxy for growth efficiency. Expand
Biogeochemistry of a low-activity cold seep in the Larsen B area, western Weddell Sea, Antarctica
Abstract. First videographic indication of an Antarctic cold seep ecosystem was recently obtained from the collapsed Larsen B ice shelf, western Weddell Sea (Domack et al., 2005). Within theExpand
Functional diversity of marine macrobenthic communities from sublittoral soft-sediment habitats off northern Chile
Benthic communities show changes in composition and structure across different environmental characteristics and habitats. However, incorporating species biological traits into the analysis canExpand
