Juvenile mortality in benthic marine invertebrates
TLDR
It is suggested that extreme vulnerability at the onset of luvenile life is a shared t r a ~ t hat is largely responsible for the surv~vorship trend Natural variation within this trend would be largely due to variation in intensity of mortality factors. Expand
Pyrosequencing reveals highly diverse and species-specific microbial communities in sponges from the Red Sea
TLDR
The results suggest that the Red Sea sponges possess highly sponge-specific or even sponge-species-specific microbial communities that are resistant to environmental disturbance, and much of their microbial diversity remains to be explored. Expand
Natural products as antifouling compounds: recent progress and future perspectives
TLDR
This mini-review describes important AF compounds discovered from a variety of organisms from 2004 until mid 2009, and discusses recent and general trends in the discovery of AF compounds. Expand
Conservative Fragments in Bacterial 16S rRNA Genes and Primer Design for 16S Ribosomal DNA Amplicons in Metagenomic Studies
TLDR
The primers recommended in this report shall facilitate a comprehensive and reliable survey of bacterial diversity in metagenomic studies, and the three predominant phyla, Firmicutes, Gemmatimonadetes and Proteobacteria, are best covered by the predicted primers. Expand
Larval settlement of the silver- or goldlip pearl oyster Pinctada maxima (Jameson) in response to natural biofilms and chemical cues
TLDR
The results show that some pharmacological agents are potent artificial inducers of larval settlement for P. maxima and this result indicates that, in nature, bacteria may play an important role in the settlement of P.maxima larvae. Expand
Owenweeksia hongkongensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel marine bacterium of the phylum 'Bacteroidetes'.
TLDR
Analysis of its ecophysiology and biochemistry suggests that this strain represents a new genus in the phylum 'Bacteroidetes', the name Owenweeksia hongkongensis gen. nov., sp. Expand
Diversity and quantity of ammonia-oxidizing Archaea and Bacteria in sediment of the Pearl River Estuary, China
TLDR
The terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism results showed that the relative abundance of AOB species in the sediment samples of different salinity were significantly different, indicating that salinity might be a key factor shaping the AOB community composition. Expand
Bacterial community succession and chemical profiles of subtidal biofilms in relation to larval settlement of the polychaete Hydroides elegans
TLDR
The results suggest that the larval settlement response cannot be predicted by the overall chemical composition of the biofilm alone and the chemical cues that mediate this response remain unknown. Expand
Diversity and acyl-homoserine lactone production among subtidal biofilm-forming bacteria
TLDR
This is the first report of AHL-producing marine bacteria in the genera Flammeovirga, Pseudoalteromonas and Thalassomonas, which suggests that AHLs may play a role in theComunity development in this environment. Expand
Description of Fabibacter halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov. and Roseivirga spongicola sp. nov., and reclassification of [Marinicola] seohaensis as Roseivirga seohaensis comb. nov.
TLDR
The results of phylogenetic analyses in this study support the reclassification of [Marinicola] seohaensis as Roseivirga spongicola comb, and propose that strain UST030701-097T represents a novel genus and that strainUST030301-084T represent a novel species in the phylum Bacteroidetes. Expand
