Peracarid assemblages of Zostera meadows in an estuarine ecosystem (O Grove inlet, NW Iberian Peninsula): spatial distribution and seasonal variation
The presence of the seagrasses should influence in a major way the hydrodynamic and sedimentary features of the habitat and utterly the spatial and temporal patterns observed in the peracarid assemblage in the O Grove inlet. Expand
First record of Perioculodes aequimanus (Crustacea: Amphipoda) in the north-east Atlantic, with remarks on taxonomic characters
The amphipod Perioculodes aequimanus from the north-east Atlantic is reported for the first time and can be distinguished from other Atlantic species according to the features of the propodus of the first gnathopod, the first coxa, the pereiopod 7 basis and the antennal peduncle. Expand
Redescription and postmarsupial development of Apseudopsis latreillii (Crustacea: Tanaidacea)
Apseudopsis latreillii is a common tanaidacean species widely-distributed in the north-east Atlantic, but its diagnostic characters remain unspecified. Furthermore, intraspecific variation inExpand
A Blueprint for an Inclusive, Global Deep-Sea Ocean Decade Field Program
The ocean plays a crucial role in the functioning of the Earth System and in the provision of vital goods and services. The United Nations (UN) declared 2021–2030 as the UN Decade of Ocean ScienceExpand
Apseudopsis adami, a new species of tanaidacean (Crustacea: Peracarida) from the NW Iberian Peninsula: postmarsupial development and remarks on morphological characters
The number of segments of the antennular and antennal flagella and uropod endopods, as well as the development and ornamentation of the mandibular palp, are meristic changes that occur during development and allow rapid identification of the developmental instar. Expand
New records of Sea Spiders (Arthropoda: Pycnogonida) for continental Portugal and notes on species distribution
A sampling effort carried out in the Northern coast of Portugal revealed the presence of two species of sea spiders that are recorded for the first time in Portugal: Anoplodactylus angulatus andExpand
On some shallow-water Tanaidomorpha (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea) of Chilean fjords, with description of a new species of Zeuxoides Sieg, 1980
Species sampled from shallow rocky bottoms of Chilean fjords are investigated, and morphological and taxonomic considerations included, and a new species of the Tanaidae, Zeuxoides tronco- soi sp. Expand
The family Apseudidae Leach, 1814 (Crustacea: Tanaidacea) in the Gulf of Gabès (Mediterranean Sea): taxonomic and biogeographic remarks and description of Apseudopsis gabesi Esquete sp. nov.
During a benthic survey carried out in the Gulf of Gabès (Tunisia), one Apseudes Leach, 1814 and four Apseudopsis Norman, 1899 species were identified, including one species new to science, which is herein accepted and elevated to species rank. Expand
Bottom-trawling fisheries influence on standing stocks, composition, diversity and trophic redundancy of macrofaunal assemblages from the West Iberian Margin
Abstract Bottom-trawling fisheries operating in Portugal (West Iberian Margin) impose one of the largest footprints per unit of biomass landed in European waters at depths greater than 200 m,Expand
