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

Achieving sound management of small‐scale fisheries (SSFs) is globally recognized a key priority for sustaining livelihoods, local economies, social wealth and cultural heritage in coastal areas. The paucity of information on SSFs often prevents the proper assessment of different socio‐ecological aspects, potentially leading to draw inappropriate c...

This Collective Article presents new information about the occurrence of 21 taxa that belong to six Phyla: one Cnidaria, one Ctenophora, two Annelida, four Mollusca, two Arthropoda, and eleven Chordata. These records were reported from ten countries from the western to the eastern Mediterranean Sea as follows: Spain: early colonization signs of the...

In the context of global change, symbiotic cnidarians are largely affected by seawater temperature elevation leading to symbiosis breakdown. This process, also called bleaching, is triggered by the dysfunction of the symbiont photosystems causing an oxidative stress and cell death to both symbiont and host cells. In our study, we wanted to elucidat...
During the course of their life cycle organisms are exposed to natural environment variations capable of inducing physiological, morphological and behaviour changes, thus a phenotypic plasticity. Phenotypic plasticity is the ability of a genotype to generate a new phenotype following exogeneous or endogeneous stress. Here, we investigated the pheno...

Non-calcifying photosynthetic anthozoans have emerged as a group that may thrive under high pCO2 conditions via increased productivity. However, the physiological mechanisms underlying this potential success are unclear. Here we investigated the impact of high pCO2 on the dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) use, in the temperate sea anemone Anemonia v...
Some solar-powered sea slugs are capable of incorporating chloroplasts directly in their cell cytosol sustaining photosynthesis for significant time periods. This phenomenon is known as kleptoplasty. Kleptoplastids show high functionality levels but little is known about their photo-regulatory mechanisms. The main objective was to investigate the f...


Question (1)
I have a culture of primary cells to which I measured viability at different time points. I also applied a treatment (control vs. trypsin). With time, cells divided and die. I was wondering if I should consider or not along each measure as time dependent and the test that could be more appropriate. Thanks
