Characteristics ofMacrobenthic Assemblage from sublittoral sediment off the Lazarev Sea , E ~ t Antarctica
Comparative account of the occurrence and aliundance of benthic rnacro-organisms collected frOm the Lazarev Sea in Queen Maud Land, (east Antarctica), during austral summer of 1984-85 and 1992-93Expand
The distribution of benthic invertebrates in Holbæk Fjord (Denmark) in relation to environmental factors
The principal components analyses show that distribution patterns, even though correlated with the same environmental parameters, change throughout the year, and it is hypothesized that they are, at least partly, due to interspecific intera... Expand
A Preliminary Survey of the Subtidal Macrobenthic Invertebrates of Cobscook Bay, Maine
The results of a 1975 benthic grab survey of outer Cobscook Bay prior to recent salmon aquaculture and port development result in the identification of 172 taxa, including large filter feeders that may be important in the nutrient budget of the Bay. Expand
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.

Characteristics of Macrobenthic Assemblage from sub-littoral sediment off the Lazarev Sea, East Antarctica
Comparative account of the occurrence and abundance of benthic macro-organisms collected from the Lazarev Sea in Queen Maud Land, (east Antarctica), during austral summer of 1984-85 and 1992-93Expand
Environmental control on the structure of echinoid assemblages in the Bellingshausen Sea (Antarctica)
The present work aims at characterizing the structure and spatial distribution of echinoid assemblages in the Bellingshausen Sea, as well as identifying the environmental factors that determine assemblage structuring. Expand
Quantitative characterization of shallow marine benthic assemblages at Ryder Bay, Adelaide Island, Antarctica
The results emphasise the general requirement for sampling methodologies to be matched to the size spectra of the organisms under study and highlight the need for studies to assess the relative importance of biotic and physical factors in structuring the Antarctic benthos. Expand
macroepifauna for assessing the benthic system in the Bay of Brest (France)
Macroepifauna of mixed sediments was quantitatively studied at three stations in the Bay of Brest. Samples were collected with the quantitative video dredge Aquareve II. Sampling performance variedExpand
Macrobenthic molluscs from a marine - lagoonal environmental transition in Lesvos Island (Greece)
The dataset described in the present paper partially fills a significant gap in the scientific literature: Because ecological research of coastal lagoons has seldom explicitly considered the marine - lagoonal habitats interface, there are no openly accessible datasets pertaining to the particular structural component of the transitional waters benthoscapes of the Mediterranean Sea.

Benthic macrofauna of the New York Bight, 1979-89. Technical report
The benthic macrofauna of the New York Bight has been monitored extensively, primarily to determine trends over space and time in biological effects of waste inputs. In the present study, from 44 toExpand
