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), ...
Population characteristics of the mole crab, Hippa adactyla Fabricius, in the intertidal sediment at Kavaratti Atoll, Lakshadweep Islands
(Rosenstiel School of Marine Sicence, 1998)
Some population characteristics of a little known mole crab Hippa adactyla from the sandy intertidal habitat of Kavaratti atoll, Lakshadweep islands, were studied for understanding the resource potentials besides some ...

Benthic macrofauna of the Andaman Sea
Macrobenthic fauna in the depth range 11 to 2150m comprised 22 faunal taxa. Of these, the polychaetes were the most dominant group and contributed 76.8%. Distribution of macrofauna was substrate specific with maximum (410m ...
Some quantitative studies on the benthos off Bombay

Effect of mining activities on the clam fisheries and bottom fauna of Goa estuaries
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1986)
Comparison of two clam beds and associated benthic fauna, in Mandovi and Cumbarjua canal estuarine system of Goa, India, severely affected by massive inputs of mining rejects, revealed that, in less than 10 years (1972-73 ...
Ecology and culturing of edible bivalves in Goa
Environmental characteristics, growth rate, total production and technically feasible methods for the mass cultivation of Meretrix casta, Paphia malabarica, Villorita cyprinoides, Donax incarnatus, Perna viridis, Modiolus ...
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 ...
