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 ...
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 ...
Characteristics of macrobenthic assemblage from sub-littoral sediment off the Lazarev Sea, East Antarctica
(NISCAIR, India, 2008)
Comparative account of the occurrence and abundance of benthic macro-organisms collected from the Lazarev Sea in Queen Maud Land, (east Antarctica), during austral summer of 1984-85 and 1992-93 (fourth and twelfth Indian ...
Effect of tropical rainfall in structuring the macrobenthic community of Mandovi estuary, west coast of India
(Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, 2013)
Macrofaunal community structure is determined by a number of environmental variables. The riverine run-off during the monsoon brings about drastic changes in the physico-chemical parameters of a tropical estuary. The aim ...
Importance of sieve size in deep-sea macrobenthic studies
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)
The deep-sea is well known for high benthic biodiversity despite being a low-food environment. However, most deep-sea organisms are very small in size as an adaptation to food limitation. Macrofauna are generally considered ...
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 ...
