Spatio-temporal Variations in Bacterial Abundance with an Emphasis on Fecal Indicator Bacteria and Vibrio spp. in and around Visakhapatnam Port, East Coast of India
(UGM Press, 2020)
The ecological health of port environments, which are dynamic and hotspots of anthropogenic activities, can be analyzed using specific pathogenic bacteria as they provide definite evidence and source of pollution. The ...
Habitat characteristics mediated partitioning of economically important bivalves in a tropical monsoon-influenced estuary
Bivalves are benthic organisms inhabiting coastal marine habitats, especially estuarine tidal and mudflats. Due to their high stocking density and rich protein content, they form a major part of the artisanal fishery ...
Changes in the ballast water tank bacterial community during a trans-sea voyage: Elucidation through next generation DNA sequencing
(Academic Press, 2020)
Ballast water (BW) mediated bioinvasion is one of the greatest threats to the health of aquatic ecosystems. Bacteria, unlike higher organisms, are transferred in large numbers through BW. Owing to their abundance and ...
Macrobenthic diversity and community structure at Cochin Port, an estuarine habitat along the southwest coast of India
Estuarine habitats are highly dynamic owing to tidal and seasonal changes in physical and chemical properties, which, in turn, have a profound influence on the diversity and community structure of its living components. ...
Phytoplankton chlorophyll-breakdown pathway: Implication in ecosystem assessment
The chlorophyll-breakdown to pheophorbide is determined by biotic factors such as grazing (via chlorophyllide) or senescence (via pheophytin). So far, much of the information on chlorophyll-breakdown is available from ...
Environmental influence on the picophytoplankton community structure in the central and northern Bay of Bengal
The Bay of Bengal (BoB) is a low productive, oligotrophic ecosystem. The picophytoplankton (Pico; < 3mu m) play a significant role in the biogeochemistry of such ecosystems. The information on the Pico is exiguous from ...
