The larvae of bothids were found to be sparsely distributed in the Indian Ocean, being only 7.6% in IIOE collections (1960-65) and 13.5% in FORV Sagar Sampada (1986-90) samples. They were confined mostly to the coastal waters. Their density was high in Bay of Bengal, with maximum number in Malacca Strait. Bay of Bengal may be considered as the cradle for larval bothids holding 45.9% while only 38.4% occurred in the Arabian Sea. They were more during northeast monsoon period. There is no direct… Expand
Bothid larvae (Pleuronectiformes - Pisces) of the Gulf of Thailand and South China Sea
The larvae of bothids were found to be sparsely distributed in the Gulf of Thailand and South China Sea being only 11.9% in the Naga Expedition Collections. They were confined mostly to the coastalExpand
Near reef abundance and on–offshore distribution of tuna larvae around Minicoy Island in Lakshadweep Sea, India
ABSTRACT Near reef abundance and coast–offshore distribution of tuna larvae around Minicoy Island were studied based on three cruises carried out on board FORV Sagar Sampada during 2014–15. TheExpand
Denitrification activity in mangrove sediments varies with associated vegetation
Abstract To test the hypothesis that mangrove vegetation associated sediment characteristics could influence an ecologically important function such as denitrification, a study was carried out at theExpand
Denitrification prevails over anammox in tropical mangrove sediments (Goa, India).
In these estuarine habitats prone to high nutrient input, N₂-fixation is minimal and denitrification rather than Anx serves as an important mechanism for counteracting N loading. Expand
Manganese-Tolerant Bacteria from the Estuarine Environment and Their Importance in Bioremediation of Contaminated Estuarine Sites
Eco-sensitive environs such as coastal and marine ecosystems of the world are constantly facing the risk of destruction. Estuaries, mangroves and solar salterns being fragile econiches are veryExpand
Nitrate levels modulate denitrification activity in tropical mangrove sediments (Goa, India)
Results reveal that mangrove sediments could act as a sink for nitrate and microbially mediated denitrification could effectively reduce N load controlling any adverse environmental impact in the adjoining estuarine system. Expand
Denitrification activity is closely linked to the total ambient Fe concentration in mangrove sediments of Goa, India
Denitrification activity (DNT) and associated environmental parameters were examined in two mangrove ecosystems of Goa, India- the relatively pristine Tuvem and the anthropogenically influencedExpand
Denitrification: an important pathway for nitrous oxide production in tropical mangrove sediments (Goa, India).
Net N2O production in these mangrove systems are comparatively higher than those reported from other natural estuarine sediments and therefore warrant mitigation measures, affirm that denitrification is the major pathway responsible for production of the greenhouse gas. Expand
Nitrogen-limited mangrove ecosystems conserve N through dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium
It is shown that up to 99% of nitrate removal in mangrove sediments is routed through dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium (DNRA), which highlights the significance of DNRA in buffering the climate by modulating the production of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide. Expand
An appraisal of biological responses and network of environmental interactions in non-mining and mining impacted coastal waters
It is hypothesized that there could be a shift in biological response along with changes in network of interactions between environmental and biological variables in these mining and non-mining impacted regions, lying 160 nmi apart. Expand
