Long-term variations in benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages off Bombay, India
(New Delhi: Oxford & IBH, 1985)
Changes in composition, number, and biomass of macrobenthic infauna in relation to environmental deterioration in the coastal zone of Bombay, India were followed between 1974 and 1983. A time-dependent impoverishment in ...
Growth of the green mussel, Perna viridis L., in a sea water circulating system
Growth of the green mussel, P. viridis L., was studied in a sea water circulating system for 12 months. The maximum growth rate was recorded during March - May, coinciding with the maximum abundance of phytoplankton. The ...

Effect of high organic enrichment of benthic polychaete population in an estuary
The benthic polychaete fauna of an estuarine region receiving domestic sewage and wastes from a nearby fish landing jetty was compared to that of a site having normal organic enrichment. The population density, biomass and ...
Abyssal benthos of the Central Indian Ocean
Quantitative studies of the abyssal benthos (3600 to 5300 m) of the central Indian Ocean show a rich fauna and high standing crops. Density of 3 meiofaunal and 12 macrofaunal taxa are large (2175 to 15233; chi = 6441 m-2). ...
