The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
BACKGROUND The question of how many marine species exist is important because it provides a metric for how much we do and do not know about life in the oceans. We have compiled the first register ofExpand
The Biology of Pycnogonida
Publisher Summary The Pycnogonida or “sea spiders” are exclusively marine invertebrates numbering, to-date, about 1000 species in 84 genera. In the past they were referred to as the Podosomata orExpand
The effects of acidic seawater on three species of lamellibranch mollusc
Three species of commercial bivalve mollusc, Ostrea edulis, Crassostrea gigas and Mytilus edulis, were maintained in seawater over a pH range of 5.4–8.2 (control), normally for 30 days. SignificantExpand
Size-selective overwintering mortality in the sand smelt, Atherina boyeri Risso, and its role in population regulation
The fat laid down as a winter reserve by O-group sand smelt, Atherina boyeri, was found to be size-dependent. The larger, earlier-spawned fish lay down more fat prior to the onset of winter. DuringExpand
The effects of acidic sea water on young carpet-shell clams Venerupis decussata (L.) (Mollusca: Veneracea)
Abstract Young carpet-shell clams Venerupis decussata (L.) were maintained in sea water over a pH range of 3.5 to 8.2 (control), for periods from 8 to 30 days. Shell dissolution occurred at pH ⩽Expand
A holistic re-interpretation of the phylogeny of the Pycnogonida Latreille, 1810 (Arthropoda)*
The internal and external relationships within the Class Pycnogonida are rationalized based on the entire history of whole-animal understanding, detailed morphometrics, the fossil record, larvalExpand

The Macaronesian Islands in the mid-Atlantic pose a number of questions relating to their colonization by littoral tanaidaceans, as these taxa have no obligate dispersive phase. Recent surveys of theExpand
Diversity of Tanaidacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) in the World's Oceans – How Far Have We Come?
Tanaidaceans are small peracarid crustaceans which occur in all marine habitats, over the full range of depths, and rarely into fresh waters. Yet they have no obligate dispersive phase in theirExpand
The effects of acidified seawater on the polychaete Nereis virens Sars, 1835
Abstract The ragworm Nereis virens was maintained in seawater over a pH range of 5.1–8.1 (control). At 18°C the worms were active and demonstrated deleterious effects at pH ≤6.5 within 10 days, shownExpand
