Benthic polychaetes as good indicators of anthropogenic impact
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2010)
Seven stations were sampled within the Mormugao harbour area for benthos and environmental variables from September 2003 to July 2004. A total of 71 polychaete taxa were identified from the area. Polychaete abundance, ...
Potential impact of sand mining on macrobenthic community at Kalbadevi Beach, Ratnagiri, West coast of India
(Allied, India, 2005)
The intertidal area at Kalbadevi, Ratnagiri has been identified as one of the potential sites for placer minerals along the west coast of India. Considering the prospects of commercial mining, benthic sampling was conducted ...

How vulnerable is Indian coast to oil spills? Impact of MV Ocean Seraya oil spill
(Current Science Association, 2008)
On 30 May 2006, a bulk carrier, MV Ocean Seraya ran aground along the Karwar coast spilling 650 tonnes of oil. Due to the rough SW monsoon, the spill spread to some beaches in south Goa. The aim of this communication is ...
Some ecological aspects and potential threats to an intertidal gastropod, Umbonium vestiarium
(Triveni Enterprises, 2012)
Kalbadevi Bay in Ratgnairi has been identified as potential site for placer mining along the west coast of India. Since, Umbonium vestiarium is a keystone species of the region; study on some ecological aspect was carried ...
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 ...
A comparative study of macrobenthic community from harbours along the central west coast of India
Harbours are heavily stressed coastal habitats characterised by high concentration of contaminant and low diversity of benthic community. The west coast of India harbours most of the major harbours compared to the east ...
Temporal variability of macrofauna from a disturbed habitat in Zuari estuary, west coast of India
Natural disturbances along with human interference make the tropical estuaries amongst the most disturbed areas globally. In spite of this, information on the seasonal variability of macrofauna from tropical estuaries is ...
Ecotoxicological effect of grounded MV River Princess on the intertidal benthic organisms off Goa
The ecotoxicological effects of oil spill from the grounded vessel MV River Princess on the intertidal benthic organisms of Sinquerim–Candolim beach at Goa, India were investigated. An intertidal expanse of 1 km on either ...
Oxygen minimum seafloor ecological (mal) functioning
Although organic matter (OM) settling on the seafloor is generally rapidly recycled, a key ecological process, large scale burial events manifest itself in the marine sedimentary record as organic carbon (Corg)-rich layers. ...
