Meiofaunal stratification in relation to microbial food in a tropical mangrove mud flat
(International Society of Tropical Ecology, Varanasi, India, 1993)
The vertical gradients of meiofauna mainly in relation to biochemical changes and microbial abundance in the upper 20 cm of deposit of a mangrove mud flat were studied. Strong vertical gradients in the redox potential (Eh), ...
Immediate response of meio and macrobenthos to disturbance caused by a benthic disturber
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, Cupertino, CA (USA), 1999)
The probable impact of nodule mining on benthic biota was studied by creating a benthic disturbance. During the predisturbance study in the Central Indian Basin, box core samples were analyzed for the distribution, composition ...
M. V. sea transporter oil spill and its environmental impact assessment
(National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, 1994)
On 5 June 1994, ore carrier M.V. Sea Transporter, was drifted to Sinquerim-Goa coast from Mormugao harbour in the squall that hit the Goa coast and grounded on the rocks, a few metres from the Sinquerim beach. The ship ...
Elemental (C, H, N) composition of zooplankton from north Arabian Sea
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
Zooplankton samples collected from north Arabian Sea during March 1992 were analysed for elemental (C,H,N) composition. Estimated carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen concentrations displayed variations among different groups but ...
Abyssal benthos of the Central Indian Ocean
Quantitative studies of the abyssal benthos (3600 to 5300 m) of the central Indian Ocean show a rich fauna and high standing crops. Density of 3 meiofaunal and 12 macrofaunal taxa are large (2175 to 15233; chi = 6441 m-2). ...
Seasonal Changes in Meat Weight and Biochemical Composition in the Black Clam Villorita Cyprinoides (Grey)
Seasonal changes in meat weight and biochemical composition are associated with reproduction, storage and utilization of reserves. The main period of increase in biochemical constituents corresponds to gametogenesis and ...
