Spatial variation in meiofaunal abundance of some coralline beaches of Mauritius
(International Society for Tropical Ecology, 1998)
Abundance of metazoan meiofauna was examined at 12 coralline sandy beaches of Mauritius island during September-October, 1987. Beach sediment comprised of moderately well sorted sand particles (Mz=0.53-2.80 phi ; x=1.70). ...

Variation in heavy metals concentration in the edible oyster Crassostrea madrasensis, clam Polymesoda erosa and grey mullet Liza aurata from coastline of India
(Discovery Publication, 2013)
Seven trace metals Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Lead (Pb), Nickel (Ni), Cobalt (Co) and Cadmium (Cd) variation and (or) accumulation in mullet fish L. aurata, edible bivalve oyster C. madrasensis from Gosthany ...
Genotoxic potency of mercuric chloride in gill cells of marine gastropod Planaxis sulcatus using comet assay
In vivo and in vitro exposures were used to investigate the genotoxicity of mercuric chloride (HgCl<sub>2</sub>) to the marine snail, Planaxis sulcatus. The comet assay protocol was validated on gill cells exposed in vitro ...
Biochemical composition of Antarctic zooplankton from the Indian Ocean sector
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
Zooplankton samples were analysed for faunal composition, organic carbon, protein, carbohydrate and lipid content. Total zooplankton biomass (as displacement volume) varied from 0.032 to 0.500 ml.m sup(-3) (x = 0.23 + or ...
Deep-sea ecosystems of the Indian Ocean
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2005)
The deep Indian Ocean is composed of a variety of habitat types, including abyssal plains, oxygenated slopes and basins, seamounts, and trenches. The geomorphological features of the Indian Ocean include mid-ocean ridges, ...
Benthic fauna around Mauritius island, southwest Indian Ocean
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1992)
Distribution of benthic fauna in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Mauritius was studied during September-October 1987. Mean faunal density (macro+meio) and dry weight biomass was 10848 no.m/2 and 228.8 mg.m/2, respectively. ...
Differential Symbiodiniaceae Association With Coral and Coral-Eroding Sponge in a Bleaching Impacted Marginal Coral Reef Environment
Marginal reefs are known for severe stress-inducible perturbations such as high sedimentation, eutrophication, ocean warming, and acidification from anthropogenic climate change. The corals striving in such stressful ...
