Meiofaunal stratification in relation to microbial food in a tropical mangrove mud flat
(International Society of Tropical Ecology, Varanasi, India, 1993)
The vertical gradients of meiofauna mainly in relation to biochemical changes and microbial abundance in the upper 20 cm of deposit of a mangrove mud flat were studied. Strong vertical gradients in the redox potential (Eh), ...
Population characteristics of the mole crab, Hippa adactyla Fabricius, in the intertidal sediment at Kavaratti Atoll, Lakshadweep Islands
(Rosenstiel School of Marine Sicence, 1998)
Some population characteristics of a little known mole crab Hippa adactyla from the sandy intertidal habitat of Kavaratti atoll, Lakshadweep islands, were studied for understanding the resource potentials besides some ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Benthos of the EEZ of India
(Omega Scientific Publ., New Delhi, 1996)
Community structure of meiobenthos from a tropical estuary
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Meiofaunal samples were collected from 3 stations, located in the salinity gradient of Zuari Estuary of Goa. Spatially the abundance of meiofauna decreased from lower to upper reaches and followed the trend of salinity ...
