Parameter Estimations of Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) Model over the Life History of a Key Antarctic Species: The Antarctic Sea Star Odontaster validus Koehler, 1906
Marine organisms in Antarctica are adapted to an extreme ecosystem including extremely stable temperatures and strong seasonality due to changes in day length. It is now largely accepted thatExpand

Genetic Evidence Confirms Polygamous Mating System in a Crustacean Parasite with Multiple Hosts
Mating systems are diverse in animals, notably in crustaceans, but can be inferred from a limited set of parameters. Baeza and Thiel (2007) proposed a model predicting mating systems of symbioticExpand

No evidence of host specialization in a parasitic pea-crab exploiting two echinoid hosts
The pinnotherid crab Dissodactylus primitivus lives parasitically on 2 burrowing echinoid species, Meoma ventricosa and Plagiobrissus grandis. The fecundity of female crabs varies between hosts, andExpand

Reproductive strategy as a piece of the biogeographic puzzle: a case study using Antarctic sea stars (Echinodermata, Asteroidea)
Aim To describe and analyse asteroid biogeographic patterns in the Southern Ocean (SO) and test whether reproductive strategy (brooder versus broadcaster) can explain distribution patterns at theExpand

Dwarf brooder versus giant broadcaster: combining genetic and reproductive data to unravel cryptic diversity in an Antarctic brittle star
Poecilogony, or multiple developmental modes in a single species, is exceedingly rare. Several species described as poecilogenous were later demonstrated to be multiple (cryptic) species with aExpand

The Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS): a ten-year appraisal
Abstract The Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS) is a marine species database that manages an authoritative taxonomic list of species occurring in the Southern Ocean. RAMS links with severalExpand

Is reproductive strategy a key factor in understanding the evolutionary history of Southern Ocean Asteroidea (Echinodermata)?
Abstract Life traits such as reproductive strategy can be determining factors of species evolutionary history and explain the resulting diversity patterns. This can be investigated usingExpand

To see or to smell: the role of vision in host-recognition by an ectoparasitic crab
Crustaceans are associated with a wide diversity of hosts, using both chemical and visual cues to recognize them. The pea crab Dissodactylus primitivus is an ectoparasite of two species of irregularExpand

Highly contrasted population genetic structures in a host–parasite pair in the Caribbean Sea
Abstract Evolution and population genetic structure of marine species across the Caribbean Sea are shaped by two complex factors: the geological history and the present pattern of marine currents.Expand

Southern Ocean Asteroidea: a proposed update for the Register of Antarctic Marine Species
Abstract Background The Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS, De Broyer et al. 2015) is the regional component of the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS Editorial Board 2015) in theExpand
