Ecological energetics of benthic communities of an estuarine system of the west coast of India
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1994)
An attempt has been made to measure the biomass and quantify the production rates of different size groups of benthic organisms. The average annual production rates of microphytobenthos, meiobenthos and macrobenthos were ...
Community structure of meiobenthos from a tropical estuary
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Meiofaunal samples were collected from 3 stations, located in the salinity gradient of Zuari Estuary of Goa. Spatially the abundance of meiofauna decreased from lower to upper reaches and followed the trend of salinity ...
Cultivation of green mussel, Perna viridis L., on a floating raft in an estuary along the west coast of India
Total production of green mussels, Perna viridis, grown on a raft (16 m sup(2)) for 1 year was 2144.64 kg and biomass (meat weight) was 1040.00 kg. Annual production (P) and biomass (B) estimated were 33.51 and 16.25 kg m ...
Spatial variation in meiofaunal abundance of some coralline beaches of Mauritius
(International Society for Tropical Ecology, 1998)
Abundance of metazoan meiofauna was examined at 12 coralline sandy beaches of Mauritius island during September-October, 1987. Beach sediment comprised of moderately well sorted sand particles (Mz=0.53-2.80 phi ; x=1.70). ...
