Oithona brevicornis Giesbrecht (Copepoda, Cyclopoida) in harborages of the northeastern part of the Black Sea shelf
Cyclopoid species Oithona brevicornis Giesbrecht, a new species for the Black Sea, was found in zooplankton samples collected in autumn of 2005 and 2006 in the Novorossiysk and Tuapse ports of the
Invasive alien species of tintinnid ciliates from the northeastern Black Sea, Russian and Abkhazian coast
The taxonomic composition and dynamics of numerical density of alien tintinnid species in the bays and harbours of the northeastern Black Sea were studied. The highest number of non-indigenous
Records of Polydora cornuta and Streblospio gynobranchiata (Annelida, Spionidae) from the Black Sea
Two spionid polychaetes, Polydora cornuta and Streblospio gynobranchiata , were identified in benthic samples collected in the northern Black Sea and adjacent waters. These species have earlier been

The pattern of distribution and biology of a cyclopoid copepod Oithona brevicornis new to the northeastern shelf of the Black Sea was studied. Penetration of this species will probably change the

For the first time, Tintinnopsis tocantinensis Kofoid & Campbell, 1929 was recorded in the ports of Novorossiysk and Tuapse in the Black Sea in October–November 2010. This tintinnid species is

TLDR
The results of the monitoring of ballast waters of commercial vessels and research on the ecosystem biodiversity of the Novorossiysk Port are reported and it has been hypothesized, that ship ballast water can become a primary factor of the “mediterranization” of the copepod fauna in the northeast of the Black Sea.
Taxonomic composition and interannual variations in numerical density of meroplankton in the Sea of Azov

TLDR
Under anthropogenic stress and predation pressure, most larvae of benthic invertebrates are apparently unable to complete metamorphosis and contribute to recruitment to parental populations, so the numerical density of meroplankton in the Sea of Azov can significantly vary, even over one month.
Seasonal dynamics of micro- and mesoplankton of the Temryuk estuarial pelagic ecosystem of the Sea of Azov
TLDR
Superdense communities of ciliates and detritophages in some periods of the vegetative season are typical for the hypereutrophic ecosystem and can testify to the catastrophic character of its transformation.

TLDR
In the aquatic area of the Novorossiisk Bay and the port of Tuapse, changes in the species composition and abundance and measurements of the rate of water self purification, destruction, reserves of assimilable organic matter, acid soluble sulfides, and oil products in bottom sediments are analyzed.
FIRST OCCURRENCE OF THE INVASIVE ALIEN SPECIES STREBLOSPIO GYNOBRANCHIATA (RICE & LEVIN, 1998) AND POLYDORA CORNUTA BOSC, 1802 (POLYCHAETA: SPIONIDAE) ON THE COAST OF ABKHAZIA (SUKHUM BAY, BLACK SEA)
TLDR
This study reports the first occurrence of an alien spionid polychaetes Streblospio gynobranchiata in the Abkhazian coast and new locality for distribution of the species in the Black Sea.
