New record of mangrove clam Geloina erosa (Solander, 1786) from the west coast of India
(Bombay Natural History Society, 1994)
A mangrove clam @iGeloina erosa@@ was collected from Chorao, a deltaic island in the attachment of Mandovi Estuary, Goa, India. This is the new record from west coast of India
Glutathione S-transferase, catalase, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, and lipid peroxidation as a biomarkers of oxidative stress in snails: A review
(University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, 2016)
Antioxidant defense plays a crucial role in the response of an organism to pollutants. Several processes stimulate the production of free radicals or deplete the antioxidant defense, which if not regulated properly, may ...
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 ...
Effect of lunar periodicity on the abundance of crabs from the Goa Coast
Lunar periodicity showed a significant influence on the occurrence of edible crabs (@iPortunus pelagicus, Charybdis cruciata and Portunus sanguinolentus@@). High density of these crabs was recorded in the trawl catches ...
Deep-sea nematode assemblages from a commercially important polymetallic nodule area in the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
The Central Indian Ocean Basin (CIOB) is an important area for prospective mining for polymetallic nodules. However, little is known about the biodiversity or community structure of abyssal benthic assemblages in the area. ...
Macrobenthic community structure response to coastal hypoxia off Southeastern Arabian sea
The analysis of changes in macrobenthic community using multivariate statistical techniques has been applied to find the structure by the environmental condition. The aim of the study was to evaluate macrofaunal community ...
Effects of benzo(k)fluoranthene, a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon on DNA damage, lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress in marine gastropod Morula granulata
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
Benzo(k)fluoranthene [B(k)F] is one of the widespread priority pollutants of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that has been scarcely studied for exposure assessment. With studies reporting a high amount B(k)F in sediments ...
Genetic variation of reef-building polychaete Sabellaria chandraae in the south-eastern Arabian Sea based on mitochondrial COI gene
The honeycomb worm Sabellaria chandraae is the most common reef-building polychaete in the intertidal area along the south-eastern Arabian Sea. We used the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (mtCOI) gene to examine ...
Biological responses to disturbance from simulated deep-sea polymetallic nodule mining
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Commercial-scale mining for polymetallic nodules could have a major impact on the deep-sea environment, but the effects of these mining activities on deep-sea ecosystems are very poorly known. The first commercial test ...
Weight-length relationship, morphometric and meristic characters of the yellow seahorse Hippocampus kuda Bleeker, 1852 (Syngnathiformes: Syngnathidae) from central west coast of India
Eighteen morphometric and five meristic characters of the yellow seahorse Hippocampus kuda Bleeker, 1852 inhabiting the coastal waters of Ratnagiri, central west coast of India, were studied. Morphometric/numerical analysis ...
