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 ...
Growth and production of benthic bivalve, Gafrarium pectinatum (Linn.) from west coast of India
Production of Gafrarium pectinatum was characterized by the presence of 0,1 and 2 y age groups Average monthly growth in length varied from 0.6 to 3mm The relationship between length and weight was isometric The average ...
Benthos of the shelf region along the west coast of India
Distribution and abundance of benthos in the depth range of 10-70 m were studied. A definite relationship was observed between benthic biomass, organic carbon, nature of substrata and demersal fish catch. Benthic biomass ...
