Effects of extensive bottom cultivation of tropical oyster Crassostrea belcheri on benthic invertebrate community structure in Ban Don Bay, Suratthani Province, Southern Thailand
The diversity, distribution, and species richness of benthic invertebrates were examined under extensive bottom cultivation of the tropical oyster Crassostrea belcheri during the summer of 2015 at
Intertidal Polychaetes as Indicators of Pollution Resulting from Anthropogenic Activities along the Okpoka Creek, Upper Bonny Estuary, Nigeria
The Okpoka river and the Amadi creek are tributaries of the upper bonny estuary. The study is aimed at identifying the intertidal polychaete species and their abundance in these areas, and using them

A study was undertaken to determine the macroinvertebrates pollution tolerance index (PTI) in Calabar River, Cross River state, Nigeria. Five sampling stations were chosen along the river course:
Spatial distribution patterns of benthic macroinvertebrate functional feeding groups by stream size and gradient in Republic of Korea
Abstract Benthic macroinvertebrate functional feeding groups (FFGs) are influenced by the availability of food sources, which can be affected by stream size and gradient. We investigated the spatial
Distribution and diversity of benthic macroinvertebrate fauna in three repeated operating ages of the blood cockle Anadara granosa cultivation in Bandon Bay, Suratthani Province, Southern Thailand
The results of the present study suggest that the distribution and diversity variations of the benthic macroinvertebrates community fauna are not affected by all sediment parameters in various repeated cultivation of the blood cockle Anadara granosa in Bandon Bay, Suratthani Province.
Hal ini bermaksud untuk mempertahankan kelestarian mangrove agar tetap menjaga keseimbangan iklim global, melindungi pantai, bermanfaat bagi nelayan, tempat tumbuh, mencari makan dan berkembang biak bagi biota laut maupun pesisir.
Efficiency of Pollution Tolerance Index (PTI) of macroinvertebrates in detecting aquatic pollution in an oxbow lake in India
This paper evaluates the efficiency of a macroinvertebrate-based Pollution Tolerance Index (PTI) in detecting aquatic pollution in the Chhariganga oxbow lake in India. In this lake, calculated PTIs
Diversity of benthic macrofauna and physical parameters of sediments in natural mangroves and in afforested mangroves three decades after compensatory planting
Mangroves in the Arabian Gulf are under pressure from land use change, leading to compensatory planting at sites without natural mangroves. In this study, we examine the potential long-term success
Variation in Abundance and Diversity of Macrobenthic fauna of Ekerekana and Okochiri Creeks in the upper Bonny Estuary , Nigeria
The Ekerekana and Okochiri Creeks in the upper Bonny Estuary is prone to effluent discharges from industries located in the area. This study aimed to assess the macrobenthos of the creeks and the
Assessment of Benthic Macro-Invertebrates of Freshwater Ecosystem: A Case Study of Ovia River (Iguoriakhi), Edo State, Nigeria
In this study, the diversity and seasonal variation of benthic macro-invertebrates of Ovia River (Iguoriakhi), Edo State, Southern Nigerian, were studied between July, 2014 and February, 2015. Four

The physico-chemical hydrology of a tropical seasonal river-upper Ogun river
The physico-chemical properties of the Ogun River were recorded between January 1974 and December 1975. A wet season with mean monthly rainfall of 9.72 cm. (s.d. = 5.07 cm) occurred from April
Structure, dynamics and production of the benthic fauna in Lake Manitoba
The structure and diversity, including seasonal variation, and the energy budget of the benthic fauna in southern Lake Manitoba were studied and related to physical and chemical properties of the
