Biomass relations between phytoplankton and zooplankton in Goa waters
Biomass of phytoplankton and zooplankton, measured as particulate oxidizable carbon, shows that at shallowest stations (5 m) there is large excess of phytoplankton organic carbon over zooplankton carbon in all the samples ...
Empirical relationships between phytoplankton and zooplankton biomass in Indian Ocean
Empirical models based on regression analysis are derived using published values of phytoplankton and crustacean zooplankton biomass from Indian Ocean. Three regression models are derived. There is significant correlation ...
Fungal activity in Mangalvan: an estuarine mangrove ecosystem
(Kerala: State Committee on Science, Technology and Environment, 1987)
This paper presents a systematic study of the fungal flora and their decaying activity in Cochin (India) and their possible role in nutrient regeneration in Mangalvan, a mangrove area of Cochin backwaters. Consequent to ...
Meiobenthos of Saphala salt marsh, west coast of India
Benthic fauna of the salt marsh comprised 10 taxonomic groups, dominated by nematodes (63.9%), harpacticoids (18.5%), turbellaria (5.6%), crustacean nauplii (5.4%) and polychaetes (4.1%). The population density varied from ...
Studies on the associate flora in the mangrove environment of Goa, India
(Kolhapur: Shivaji University, 1986)
Ecological observations have been made on marine algae and seagrasses from the mangrove environment of Goa, India. Plant samples along with thallus and rhizoides were collected from nine stations; viz. Mandovi (M1-M3), ...
Nitrogen uptake by phytoplankton and zooxanthellae in a coral atoll
This paper describes the nitrogen uptake, measured by assimilation of @u15@@N - labelled nitrate, ammonium, urea and @u14@@C - labelled urea, by phytoplankton, intact corals and freshly isolated zooxanthellae from the ...
Zooplankton standing stock and composition in coastal waters of Goa, west coast of India
Temporal and spatial variability in standing stock and zooplankton composition at 5 stations along the Goa Coast, India during 1975-76 were studied. Standing stock values ranged from 22.81 to 53.65 mg C.m/3. Zooplankton ...
