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 ...
Environmental physiology of raft-grown mussels in Goa, India
Mussels (@iPerna viridis@@ L.) transplanted from a marine intertidal region and grown under water in the estuarine environment (on a floating raft) display a wide array of physiological adaptations in growth, osmoregulation ...
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 ...
Seagrass habitat complexity and macroinvertebrate abundance in Lakshadweep coral reef lagoons, Arabian Sea
Macrofauna of seagrass community in the five Lakshadweep atolls were studied and compared. The associated epifaunal and infaunal taxa comprising nine major taxonomic groups, showed significant differences in the total ...
Distribution of sub-littoral meiobenthos off Goa Coast, India
Deep sea benthos of the western and central Indian Ocean
(Oxford and IBH, New Delhi, 1992)
Quantitative investigations on deep sea benthos from 112 stations between lat. 21 degrees N-21 degrees S and long. 51 degrees E-94 degrees E and in the depth range of 1500 to 6000 m, revealed a rich biota having relatively ...
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 ...
Effect of lunar periodicity on the abundance of crabs from the Goa Coast
Lunar periodicity showed a significant influence on the occurrence of edible crabs (@iPortunus pelagicus, Charybdis cruciata and Portunus sanguinolentus@@). High density of these crabs was recorded in the trawl catches ...
