How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Coccolithophores are a calcifying unicellular phytoplankton group that are at the base of the marine food web, and their lipid content provides a source of energy to consumers. Coccolithophores are vulnerable to ocean acidification and warming, therefore it is critical to establish the effects of climate change on these significant marine primary p...
Ecological profiling of non-native species is essential to predict their dispersal and invasive-ness potential across different areas of the world. Cassiopea is a monophyletic taxonomic group of scyphozoan mixotrophic jellyfish including C. andromeda, a recent colonizer of sheltered, shallow-water habitats of the Mediterranean Sea, such as harbors...
Cassiopea jellyfish have successfully invaded several marine ecosystems worldwide. We investigated if Cassiopea andromeda grows larger (umbrella size) and if their populations are more stable in shrimp farms than in mangroves in the Brazilian coast. Our results show that jellyfish abundance is higher in the shrimp farm during the rainy season and i...
The Arctic polychaete, Oligobrachia haakonmosbiensis (Family Siboglinidae), is the most abundant symbiotic species inhabiting the Haakon Mosby Mud Volcano (Norwegian Sea, depth 1250 m). Different aspects of gametogenesis, fecundity, embryogenesis, and larval development were studied using biometric measurements, classical histology, and scanning el...
