Structural diagnosis of benthic invertebrate communities in relation to salinity gradient in Baltic coastal lake ecosystems using biological trait analysis
This study is based on biological trait analysis (BTA), which provides a link between the distribution and biological characteristics of species. The paper investigates differences in the structure
Functional Trait Responses of Macrobenthos to Anthropogenic Pressure in Three Temperate Intertidal Communities
With the increasing impact of human activities on marine ecosystems, there is a growing need to assess how the components of marine ecosystems (e.g., macrobenthos) respond to these anthropogenic
Crustacean diversity in the Puget Sound: reconciling species, phylogenetic, and functional diversity
Biodiversity has critical phylogenetic and functional components, yet many prior studies of marine communities focus only on taxonomic diversity. Here, we surveyed intertidal crustacean communities
Los poliquetos como indicadores biológicos en Latinoamérica y el Caribe
This work shows an upgrade referring to Latin America including an extensive literature review on polychaetes, a fundamental item in invertebrates feeding and for migratory birds and fishes.


Assessing functional diversity of macrobenthic assemblages in sewage-affected intertidal shores
Biological traits analysis and functional diversity indices, especially FRic that reveals differences in macrobenthic functional structure between impacted and reference sites during all seasons, represent an informative and useful tool to describe the different aspects of sewage impacts in benthic assemblages on rocky shores.
Functional diversity of marine macrobenthic communities from sublittoral soft-sediment habitats off northern Chile
Benthic communities show changes in composition and structure across different environmental characteristics and habitats. However, incorporating species biological traits into the analysis can
Influence of sewage pollution on a rocky intertidal community dominated by the mytilid Brachidontes rodriguezi
The characteristic Brachidontes rodriguezi community was absent from the highly polluted intertidal area surrounding a sewage outfall at Quequen (Argentina). It began to recover in lower tidal levels
