Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and n-Alkanes in beaked sea snake Enhydrina schistose (Daudin, 1803) from the Mandovi Estuary, Goa
An ecotoxicological study were conducted to evaluate the concentrations of PAHs and n-alkanes, in gut, liver and kidney tissues of two individuals of Enhydrina schistose (Daudin, 1803), using gas chromatography/mass ...
Role of salinity in structuring the intertidal meiofauna of a tropical estuarine beach: Field evidence
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Community structure of meiofauna was studied for 12 months (July 1991-June 1992) on an estuarine intertidal beach at Siridao, Goa (India). The temperature of the surf zone water ranged from 26.5 degrees to 30.7 degrees C; ...

The contribution of deep-sea macrohabitat heterogeneity to global nematode diversity
(Blackwell Verlag GmbH, 2010)
The great variety of geological and hydrological conditions in the deep sea generates many different habitats. Some are only recently explored, although their true extent and geographical coverage are still not fully ...
Nematode species diversity as indicator of stressed benthic environment along the central west coast of India
(Goa University, India, 2007)
Deterioration or recovery of a marine habitat from perturbation depends on the target community subjected for exposure and its sensitivity to respond to the change. In the present study, we demonstrated the utility of ...
