Ecological patterns in the benthic macrobiota across the continental shelf off central Chile
Abstract The upper sublittoral benthic macrobiota off central Chile (36° 32'S) was sampled on six cruises during 1984 and 1985, at four fixed benthic stations. The aim of this study was to learnExpand

Sperm cell bioassays with the sea urchin Arbacia spatuligera on samples from two polluted Chilean coastal sites
Abstract A short-term sea urchin sperm cell bioassay was developed using Arbacia spatuligera from Chilean waters. Sperms of this species were exposed to serially diluted effluent and seawater samplesExpand

Theoretical analysis of the relationship between production per unit biomass and animal body size
An empirical generalization in ecology states that the relationship between production per unit biomass (P/B) and body mass (W) is an allometric (power) function with an exponent around -1/3, forExpand
