The Subtropical Estuarine Complex of Paranaguá Bay, Brazil
Paranagua Bay, on the coast of Parana State in southeastern Brazil (48°25′W, 25°30′S), is part of a large interconnected subtropical estuarine system that includes the Iguape-Cananeia Bay system onExpand
Land-ocean fluxes in the Paranaguá Bay estuarine system, southern Brazil
A worldwide modeling effort has been proposed by the LOICZ (Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone) Program to foster the acquisition of intercomparable data on land-ocean fluxes in estuariesExpand
Multiannual trends in fronts and distribution of nutrients and chlorophyll in the southwestern Atlantic (30–62°S)
Abstract This paper presents the first data on the vertical distribution of chlorophyll and nutrients in the upper layers of the southern southwestern Atlantic and interprets it in relation toExpand
Fukuyoa paulensis gen. et sp. nov., a New Genus for the Globular Species of the Dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus (Dinophyceae)
The morphological and molecular data in concert support the split of Gambierdiscus sensu lato into two genera, and the new genus name Fukuyoa contains the new species FukuyOA paulensis gen. et sp. Expand
Zooplankton and ichthyoplankton distribution on the southern Brazilian shelf: an overview
The southern Brazilian coast is the major fishery ground for the Brazilian sardine, a species responsible for up to 40% of marine fish catches in the region, and cold neritic waters originating off Argentina, and subtropical waters from the Subtropical Convergence exert a strong seasonal influence on zooplankton and ichthyoplankton distribution towards more southern areas.

Omnivory in the calanoid copepod Temora longicornis: feeding, egg production and egg hatching rates
The relatively low EPE and egg hatching success suggest that reproduction and recruitment in this study were severely constrained by the biochemical composition of the diet, or the physiological condition of the females towards the end of their season of growth in Long Island Sound. Expand

  • 1 September 1994
Abstract The structure and seasonal variability of zooplanktonic associations were analysed over a 1-year period in the Guarau River Estuary (south-east Brazil). The spatial segregation of theExpand
Distribution patterns of epipelagic copepods off Rio de Janeiro (SE Brazil) in summer 1991/1992 and winter 1992
The spatial distribution of copepod populations on the eastern continental shelf off Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, was analysed in relation to the hydrographic regime in December–January (summerExpand
Estuarine and oceanic influences on copepod abundance and production of a subtropical coastal area
The distribution and dynamics of the oceanic water masses seemed to be the most important influence on copepod diversity and production at this subtropical site. Expand
Current distribution of the exotic copepod Pseudodiaptomus trihamatus Wright, 1937 along the northeastern coast of Brazil
The introduction of exotic species is a major cause of depletion and extinction of native populations, a threat only surpassed by habitat destruction (Williamson, 1999). Expand
