Interactions between trophic levels in upwelling and non-upwelling regions during summer monsoon
Coastal upwelling is a regular phenomenon occurring along the southwest coast of India during summer monsoon (May–September). We hypothesize that there could be a shift in environmental parameters along with changes in the ...
Seabed habitat mapping employing single and multi-beam backscatter data: A case study from the western continental shelf of India
Acoustic backscatter from multi-beam echo-sounder (MBES) and dual-frequency single-beam echo-sounding systems (SBES) operable at 95 kHz and 33/210 kHz, respectively, were used to study the distribution of sediment texture ...
Miramar (Goa) Beach Management Project: An Oceanographic Evaluation
(IK International, New Delhi, 2009)
Miramar beach is a faunal storehouse as 50 macrobenthic species are recorded. About 80% meiobenthic communities and >50% macrobenthic communities inhabit the top 5 cm section of the intertidal zone. As such, mechanical ...
Macrobenthic abundance in the vicinity of spreading ridge environment in Central Indian Ocean
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2003)
Macrofaunal communities of the Central Indian Ocean were evaluated for their composition, distribution, abundance and biomass. The fauna comprised of 24 major groups belonging to 15 phyla. The density of macrofauna varied ...
A new genus and species of deep-sea glass sponge (Porifera, Hexactinellida, Aulocalycidae) from the Indian Ocean
(Pensoft Publishers, 2011)
New hexactinellid sponges were collected from 2589 m depth on the Carlsberg Ridge in the Indian Ocean during deep-sea dredging. All fragments belong to a new genus and species, Indiella gen. n. ridgenensis sp. n., a ...
Temporal variation in macroinvertebrates associated with intertidal sponge Ircinia fusca (Carter 1880) from Ratnagiri, West coast, India.
Temporal variation of macrofauna associated with a marine sponge, Ircinia fusca was studied from a tropical rocky shore along the West coast of India. Triplicate sponge samples (~100 g) were collected from January to ...
Biodiversity and biogeography pattern of benthic communities in the coastal basins of India
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
Our understanding of coastal biogeography patterns is presently limited to certain regions and marine groups. Comprehending large-scale patterns and their underlying predictors is critical due to the changing environmental ...
New perceptions of continrntal margin biodiversity
The deep ocean is a hostile and challenging environment. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the continental slopes. The complexity of the slope and the unforgiving nature of the seabed has until recently limited the ...
अति मच्छीमारी एक विकट समस्या- गोवा राज्य के संदर्भ में अध्ययन.
(CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, 2012)
Role of environmental heterogeneity in structuring the macrobenthic community in a tropical sandy beach, west coast of India
In most ecosystems, community structure emerges as a result of the complex interaction between biotic and environmental variables. Sandy beaches connected to adjacent ecosystem like estuaries/creeks provide an opportunity ...
