Abundance and production of particle-associated bacteria and their role in a mangrove-dominated estuary
A 1 yr study was carried out in the mangrove-dominated, tropical Mandovi estuary (Goa, India) to assess the contribution of particle-associated bacteria (PAB) to the system’s variability in terms of abundance and productivity. ...
Marine microbial ecology: Reminiscence of the status and some suggestions for the way forward
(CUSAT; India, 2012)
An attempt has been made to pick out a few aspects of the vast progress that the science of marine microbial ecology has made in the recent years and how we can move forward notwithstanding the challenges.
Chemosynthetic activity prevails in deep-sea sediments of the Central Indian Basin
It is hypothesized that in the deep-sea, under psychrophilic, barophilic and oligotrophic conditions, microbial community of Central Indian Basin (CIB) sediments could be chemosynthetic. In the dark, at near ambient ...
Anoxia over the western continental shelf of India: Bacterial indications of intrinsic nitrification feeding denitrification
Studies on the Arabian Sea coastal anoxia have been of immense interest, but despite its ecological significance there is sparse understanding of the microbes involved. Hence, observations were carried out off Goa (15 ...
Response of sedimentary nucleic acids to benthic disturbance in the Central Indian Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2005)
Information on the response of nucleic acids (i.e., DNA and RNA) to simulated benthic disturbance was obtained from samples collected from eight sediment cores (0-10 cm) located in the Central Indian Basin (CIB). In general ...
Bacterial flora of Dona Paula, India using numerical profiles
(Japanese Society of Fisheries Science, 1990)
Particle-associated bacterial dynamics in a tropical tidal plain (Zuari estuary, India)
(Inter Research, 2003)
The dynamics of particle-associated bacteria (PAB) in a tropical estuary, Zuari, in Goa on the west coast of India, was studied for a year from September 1997 to October 1998. Bacterial abundance, productivity and enzymatic ...
Behaviour of marine oil-degrading bacterial populations in a continuous culture system
In pursuit of developing an oil-degrading microbial consortium, we used the principle of "plasmid assisted molecular breeding" (PAMB) in a continuous culture system. Three marine bacteria, Pseudomonas putida, Brevibacterium ...
Water quality and bacteriology in an aquaculture facility equipped with a new aeration system
The HOBAS aeration system was tested to compare changes in environmental and bacteriological parameters in ponds growing Penaeus monodon during a single production cycle. The stocking density in the aerated pond was doubled ...
Denitrification: An important pathway for nitrous oxide production in tropical mangrove sediments (Goa, India)
(American Society of Agronomy, 2010)
Net nitrous oxide production and denitrification activity were measured in two mangrove ecosystems of Goa, India. The relatively pristine site Tuvem was compared to Divar, which is prone to high nutrient input. Stratified ...
