Evolution of productivity and monsoonal dynamics in the eastern Arabian Sea during the past 68 ka using dinoflagellate cyst records
For the first time here we report the dinoflagellate cyst assemblage response to the monsoon variability over the last 68 ka from the Eastern Arabian Sea (EAS). Based on the cyst assemblage, five dinoflagellate cyst zones ...
Species interactions within a fouling diatom community: Roles of nutrients, initial inoculum and competitive strategies
(Taylor & Francis, 2007)
Diatoms constitute an important component of the fouling community. Although a lot of work has dealt with the fouling diatom community structure, work on the species interactions within the community is still meager. In ...
Reproduction in Balanus amphitrite Darwin (Cirripedia: Thoracica); influence of temperature and food concentration
Balanus amphitrite, an acorn barnacle is distinctly euryhaline and eurythermal, and a dominant fouling organism found in warm and temperate waters through out the world. In this study the influence of temperature and food ...
Global concerns of ship`s ballast water mediated translocation of bacteria
(Springer and Business Media, 2017)
Shipping facilitates transportation of over 90% of the world’s commodities and eventually transfers ~10 billion tons of ballast water which is routinely taken aboard vessels to maintain their stability. The ballast water ...
Short term response of plankton community to nutrient enrichment in central eastern Arabian Sea: Elucidation through mesocosm experiments
Oligotrophic waters (OW), generally favour longer food chain facilitated by the microbial loop. In such ecosystems, physical mixing (e.g. upwelling, and winter convection) inject nutrients and propagules from subsurface ...
Factors regulating the production of different inducers in Pseudomonas aeruginosa with reference to larval metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite
Gregarious settlement in barnacles has been related to the settlement-inducing compounds from adult conspecifics, bacteria in the biofilms, and their interaction. Elucidation of larval settlement cues from these sources ...
