Advance of the Study on the Macrobenthos from the Yellow Sea and East China Sea
Based on the collection and analysis of the references concerning the ecological study on the mac- robenthos from the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea, the advances of the study on the speciesExpand
Aspects of the ecology of macrobenthic abyssal key species in the South Atlantic Ocean with focus on the Isopoda Crustacea: Malacostraca
Sediment samples were taken during and after a phytoplankton bloom at 52°S 0°E in 2007/2008 to assume that low temperatures and ecological strategies are the underlying factors for the delayed response of benthic deep-sea copepods to the modified environmental situation in terms of egg and larval production.

Estimating the Productivity of the Black Sea Bivalve Chamelea gallinafrom the Size and Biomass of Its Populations
Characteristics of annual production based on various mass data (whole animal mass; shell mass; and wet, dry, and ash-free dry soft tissue mass), the P/B coefficient, and specific production wereExpand
Benthic control freaks: Effects of the tubiculous amphipod Haploops nirae on the specific diversity and functional structure of benthic communities
It is shown that the occurrence of Haploops tubes and individuals significantly modifies sediment features but also largely affect species diversity and benthic composition, and H. nirae appears to be a bioengineer and a foundation species that largely modifies its hydro-sedimentary features, controlling diversity and abundances of associated species, and creating a complex set of positive and negative interactions.

Evaluation of Brey’s production/biomass model on the basis of a long-term data set on a clam population
The Brey model cannot be recommended for precise and unbiased P estimates in a single species when no more than a once-only assessment of Wand B is available. Expand
A polychaete-dominated community in the NW Mediterranean Sea, 20 years after cessation of sewage discharges
Abstract Benthic recovery following cessation of wastewater discharges in shallow soft-bottom environments off Barcelona was assessed by revisiting an old sampling site in 2008 that had been studiedExpand
Indirect estimation of benthic secondary production in the Lagoon of Venice (Italy)
Five published indirect methods to estimate benthic secondary production of intertidal mudflats and a new proposed formulation based on quarter-power allometric scaling and the “Universal TemperatureExpand
Estimating Secondary Production from the Epifaunal and Infaunal Macrobenthos
The benthic infauna and benthic respiration off the Banc d'Arguin (Mauritania, Northwest Africa)
In May 1988, a study was made of the benthic community structure and benthic respiratory activity along two transects across the Mauritanian shelf off Banc d'Arguin. The main emphasis of the presentExpand
Zygochlamys patagonica beds on the Argentinian shelf. Part I: Energy flow through the scallop bed community
The scallop bank, “Reclutas”, on the Argentinian shelf was sampled on two occasions, first, somemonths after initial settlement of the scallip Zygochlamys patagonica (1995) and again, 4 years later (1998), when the proportion of Z. patagonicas rose to > 60 % for both. Expand
