Impacts of discarded plastic bags on marine assemblages and ecosystem functioning.
TLDR
A field experiment was conducted to assess the impact of conventional and biodegradable plastic carrier bags as litter on benthic macro- and meio-faunal assemblages and biogeochemical processes on an intertidal shore near Dublin, Ireland, indicating that both conventional andBiodegradables bags can rapidly alter marine assemblage and the ecosystem services they provide.

Feeding rates and scope for growth of green mussels, Perna viridis (L.) and their relationship with food availability in Kat O, Hong Kong
TLDR
Food availability was the key factor influencing feeding behaviour of P. viridis, and ARs and AEs were significantly correlated with TPM and f (P<0.001), showing that food availability wasThe feeding and absorption rates of the green mussel Perna viridis were studied from December 1997 to November 1998.

Cyclical Events in the Life and Death of an Ephemeral Polychaete Reef on a Tropical Mudflat
The polychaete (sabellariid-spionid) reefs at Jeram shore (Malaysia) grow up on soft-bottom mudflats and appear short-lived. It is postulated that such reef building results from the succession ofExpand
The application of two benthic indices to investigate the effects of land-based fish farms in coastal transitional ecosystems: two case studies in Tuscany region (Italy)
The effects on the benthic ecosystem deriving from the activities of two land-based fish farms located in Italian coastal transitional ecosystems (CTEs) were investigated. Together with chemical andExpand
