A aplicação dos ostracodes (Crustacea) em pesquisas paleoceanográficas e paleoclimáticas

Ostracodes constitutes a microfossil group with many applications to geosciences as denoted by their paleoenvironmental and biostratigraphic uses. From the middle of 20th century ostracode

Salinity-driven size variability in Cyprideis torosa (Ostracoda, Crustacea)

A bimodal distribution between shell size (which can be determined directly from optical microscopy) and the salinity of the water in which the carapace formed is demonstrated and coincides with a physiologically important switch between hypo- and hyper-osmotic regulation.

Morphological and geochemical variations of Cyprideis (Ostracoda) from modern waters of the northern Neotropics

A contribution to the understanding of environmental influences on modern ostracod shell characters as basis for paleontological applications is presented.

Size effect on the mineralogy and chemistry of Mytilus trossulus shells from the southern Baltic Sea: implications for environmental monitoring

Mussels have the ability to control biomineral production and chemical composition, producing shells with a range of functions. In addition to biological control, the environment also seems to

Magnesium and strontium distributions within valves of a recent marine ostracode, Neonesidea oligodentata: Implications for paleoenvironmental reconstructions

Ostracodes are bivalved microcrustaceans that live in nearly all types of aquatic environments. The chemical compositions of the calcified part of their carapaces are frequently used as an empirical

Modeling calcification periods of Cytheridella ilosvayi from Florida based on isotopic signatures and hydrological data

Abstract. The isotopic signatures of ostracod shells are the result of the temperature and composition of their host water and the phenology and ecology of the target species. Investigations

A global evaluation of temperature and carbonate ion control on Mg/Ca ratios of ostracoda genus Krithe

Improving estimates of past ocean temperatures is paramount to our understanding of ocean circulation and its role in climate change. Magnesium/calcium (Mg/Ca) ratios of carapaces of the benthic



Magnesium content of non-marine ostracod shells: A new palaeosalinometer and palaeothermometer

An ecological study of seasonal distribution of Ostracoda, Solomons Island, Maryland, region

The seasonal distribution of the species was compared with hydrographical records furnished for the same period by the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory to determine the correlation between ecological factors and seasonal fluctuations in numbers and species of Ostracoda.

Contrasting population ecology of two species of Loxoconcha (Ostracoda, Crustacea) in Recent Zostera (eelgrass) beds : adaptive differences between phytal and bottom-dwelling species

Some ecological features, such as the main breeding season and fecundity, are shown to be preserved in sub-fossil population structure, which will help in paleoecological reconstructions and in the understanding of fossil paleocommunities.

Magnesium and strontium in non-marine ostracod shells as indicators of palaeosalinity and palaeotemperature

Measurements of the Ca, Sr, and Mg contents of individual calcitic shells of non-marine ostracods and their host waters, both in lakes and controlled aquaria, permit the calculation of the

Magnesium in Calcite of Marine Ostracoda

Results of 255 microprobe analyses of Holocene marine Ostracoda show that, for the 21 specimens analyzed, the greatest variation in mole percent MgCO 3 occurs within calcite of individual carapaces

Uptake of Mg and Sr in the euryhaline ostracod Cyprideis determined from in vitro experiments

Magnesium content of calcite in carapaces of benthic armine Ostracoda

The inner region of the carapace was found to contain the most magnesium in all four superfamily groups, the mean ranging from 2.1 mole percent MgCO3 for the cytheraceans to 6.2 mole percentMgCO 3 for the Cypridaceans.

Morphology and ecology of two podocopid ostracodes from Redfish Bay, Texas

The external and internal anatomy and the ecology of two ostracode species, Aurila conradi (Howe and McGuirt) subsp. littorala Grossman, new subspecies, and Loxoconcha purisubrhomboidea Edwards, are
