Report of epibiont Thecacineta calix (Ciliophora: Suctorea) on deep sea Desmodora (Nematoda) from the Andaman Sea, Indian Ocean
(Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, 2010)
Suctorian epibionts Thecacineta calix attached on the cuticle of nematodes Desmodora sphaerica and D. pontica are reported here from the deep sea hexactinellid sponge Pheronema sp. from the Andaman Sea (Indian Ocean). The ...
Megafaunal community structure of Andaman seamounts including the back-arc basin - A quantitative exploration from the Indian Ocean
(Public Library of Science, 2011)
Species rich benthic communities have been reported from some seamounts, predominantly from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, but the fauna and habitats on Indian Ocean seamounts are still poorly known. This study focuses ...
A new genus and species of deep-sea glass sponge (Porifera, Hexactinellida, Aulocalycidae) from the Indian Ocean
(Pensoft Publishers, 2011)
New hexactinellid sponges were collected from 2589 m depth on the Carlsberg Ridge in the Indian Ocean during deep-sea dredging. All fragments belong to a new genus and species, Indiella gen. n. ridgenensis sp. n., a ...
Role of environmental heterogeneity in structuring the macrobenthic community in a tropical sandy beach, west coast of India
In most ecosystems, community structure emerges as a result of the complex interaction between biotic and environmental variables. Sandy beaches connected to adjacent ecosystem like estuaries/creeks provide an opportunity ...
First record of Hyalascus (Hexactinellida: Rossellidae) from the Indian Ocean, with description of a new species from a volcanic seamount in the Andaman Sea
(Magnolia Press, 2010)
A new species of Hyalascus is described from the submarine volcanic crater seamount of Andaman Back-arc Basin, Indian Ocean. The genus was previously known in the Pacific Ocean only
The community structure of the deep-sea nematode community associated with polymetallic nodules in the Central Indian Ocean Basin
Technological advances have led to an increase in the number of investigations in the deep sea over the last two decades. However, despite a large number of scientific cruises, few published data on the nematode biodiversity ...
Is climate change triggering coral bleaching in tropical reef?
(Current Science Association, 2015)
Analysis of SST data of this region, derived from the Giovanni on-line data system , developed and maintained by NASA GESDISC, revealed 1.02°C and 1.61°C rise in temperature above normal during 2014, in summer and winter ...
A comparative study of macrobenthic community from harbours along the central west coast of India
Harbours are heavily stressed coastal habitats characterised by high concentration of contaminant and low diversity of benthic community. The west coast of India harbours most of the major harbours compared to the east ...
Brittle stars (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea) from seamounts in the Andaman Sea (Indian Ocean): first account, with descriptions of new species
(Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, 2012)
Brittle stars were collected on two seamounts in the Andaman Back-arc Basin. Of the six species, two were new to science and are described herein as Ophioleuce longispinum sp. nov. and Ophiophyllum minimum sp. nov., in the ...
Macrofaunal community structure in the western Indian continental margin including the oxygen minimum zone
(Blackwell Verlag GmbH, 2010)
Patterns of macrofaunal distribution were studied along the western Indian continental margin to distinguish the role of habitat heterogeneity in generating and maintaining community structure. A transect perpendicular to ...
