Faster growth rates obtained for P. viridis in Hong Kong's summer are considered a result of enhanced feeding and absorption at high temperatures and f values. Expand
Mollusc assemblages of soft-sediments in subtropical eastern Australia
Measures of hydraulic dredge efficiency and razor clam production, two aspects governing sustainability within the Scottish commercial fishery
A study was made of the efficiency of a commercially available hydraulic dredge design in use on the west coast of Scotland and of the annual biomass production of two different razor clam (EnsisExpand
Responses of an abyssal meiobenthic community to short-term burial with crushed nodule particles in the south-east Pacific
Abstract. Increasing industrial metal demands due to rapid technological developments may drive the prospection and exploitation of deep-sea mineral resources such as polymetallic nodules. To date,Expand
Effects of proximity to offshore fish farms over soft-bottom macrofauna
Sea-cage fish farms impact the seabed within their immediate vicinity, potentially affecting recipient communities. We assessed whether proximity to three sea-cage fish farms at the Canary IslandsExpand
Temporal changes of the meiofaunal assemblage as a tool for the assessment of the ecological quality status
The Adriatic Sea, being a semi-closed and shallow basin, is more sensitive to anthropogenic impact than other areas of the Mediterranean Sea. Given the crucial role of meiofauna in the marineExpand
Macrobenthic community structure in tropical estuaries: the effect of sieve mesh-size and sampling depth on estimated abundance, biomass and composition
The correlations among community dissimilarity using different meshes with environmental parameters (organic matter, total-N and microphytobenthos) indicated that the use of the 0.5 mm sieve will allow a better evaluation of the status of these estuaries, and highlights the importance of taking the vertical distribution of tropical macrofauna into account for quantitative estimates.

Changes in the composition and structure of a molluscan assemblage due to eelgrass loss in southern Spain (Alboran Sea)
Urgent conservation measures are needed for protecting the remaining fragmented eelgrass beds of southern Spain from further illegal fisheries activities and other types of human impacts (e.g. sand extraction and coastal infrastructures), because they support the most diverse faunistic communities for eel Grass beds in Europe due to their bathymetry and geographical location.

Comparison of the particle size distributions of sediment collected from sandy seafloor using a Van Veen grab and cone dredge
Sediment particle size is an important environmental parameter that influences benthic species composition and is frequently used in habitat and ecosystem classification systems. In South Africa,Expand
High Species Richness and Extremely Low Abundance of Cumacean Communities Along the Shelf and Slope of the Gulf of Guinea (West Africa)
The Gulf of Guinea belongs to the most scarcely sampled marine basins in the oceans of the world. We have analyzed diversity and distribution patterns of cumacean communities on the shelf and slope,Expand
