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 ...

First record of the synaptid holothurian Protankyrian protankyra Bidentata (Woodward and Barrett, 1858) from the Indian Ocean
(Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, 2015)
Sea cucumbers (holothurians) are marine invertebrates that are harvested worldwide, mostly for human consumption in Asian countries To date, only eight species of synaptid holothurians of the genus Protankyra have been ...
Testing the efficiency of temperate benthic biotic indices in assessing the ecological status of a tropical ecosystem
The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the ecological status of tropical coastal waters using the temperate benthic indices and examine the effect of seasonal variability on the performance of benthic indices. ...
Macrobenthic community structure of coastal Arabian Sea during the fall intermonsoon
In the Arabian Sea, organic matter produced during the upwelling period reaches the seafloor by the end of the monsoon and during the fall intermonsoon period (FIM) Studies on the benthic community is lacking during this ...
Environmental gradient favours functionally diverse macrobenthic community in a placer rich tropical bay
(Hindawi Publishing, 2013)
The present paper examines the functional diversity-environment relation in a placer rich tropical bay. The geographic location of Kalbadevi Bay along the west coast of India provides an opportunity to study the functional ...
Trait-based and taxonomic macrofauna community patterns in the upwelling ecosystem of the southeastern Arabian sea
Coastal upwelling that occurs in the eastern Arabian Sea (EAS) drive the complex dynamics of the food chain. Macrofauna plays a key role in the functioning of coastal ecosystems, but few studies explored the taxonomic and ...
