Ecological quality assessment of Kor River in Fars Province using macroinvertebrates indices
Modifications in the ecological structure of macroinvertebrate communities could reflect changes in environmental conditions. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to identify macroinvertebrate
Examining the Research on Business Information-Entropy Correlation in the Accounting Process of Organizations
Analysis of research trends at the international level on business information–entropy correlation in the accounting process of organizations presents an upward trend, which allows a growing interest in the subject to be deduced in the academic and scientific community worldwide.


Multi-scale spatio-temporal patchiness of macrozoobenthos in the Sacca di Goro lagoon (Po River Delta, Italy)
1 - In this study, the macrobenthos from different habitats in the Sacca di Goro lagoon (Po River Delta, Italy) is analysed by following a multi-scale spatio-temporal approach, with the aim of
Spatial and temporal variation in benthic macrofauna and relationships with environmental variables in an estuarine, intertidal soft-sediment environment
We quantified the distribution, abundance, biomass and assemblage structure of ben- thic macrofauna at different spatio-temporal scales in a temperate estuarine, intertidal soft-sediment environment
Hydrological constraints to macrobenthic fauna biodiversity in transitional waters ecosystems
Lagoons are habitat islands in the coastal landscapes characterised by heterogeneity among ecosystems, due to the different terrestrial–freshwater–marine interfaces, as well as by heterogeneity
Geographic patterns of biodiversity in European coastal marine benthos
It is concluded that latitudinal trends and regional differences in diversity and densities are strongly influenced by particular sets and ranges of environmental factors and location characteristics specific to certain areas, such as the Baltic with typical salinity clines and the Mediterranean, with higher temperatures.
Biodiversity conservation in Mediterranean and Black Sea lagoons: a trait-oriented approach to benthic invertebrate guilds
The results support the relevance of constraints imposed by individual body size on community organization in transitional water ecosystems and the adequacy of size patterns as an indicator for ecological conservation of these fragile ecosystems.
Spatial patterns of benthic invertebrate assemblages within atoll lagoons: importance of habitat heterogeneity and considerations for marine protected area design in French Polynesia
We investigated spatial patterns of stony corals, molluscs and echinoderms among six habitat types within the lagoons of six atolls in the Tuamotu Archipelago (French Polynesia). Percent cover (stony
