Daily variations in pathogenic bacterial populations in a monsoon influenced tropical environment
Changing climatic conditions have influenced the monsoon pattern in recent years. Variations in bacterial population in one such tropical environment were observed everyday over two years and point out intra and inter ...
Effect of hydrodynamic cavitation on zooplankton: A tool for disinfection
Application of hydrodynamic cavitation for disinfection of water is gaining momentum, as it provides environmentally and economically sound options. In this effort, the effect of cavitating conditions created by differential ...
Influence of bacterial exopolymers and the adult extract of Balanus amphitrite and Cthamalus sp. on cyprid metamorphosis of Balanus amphitrite
(US Office of Naval Research, 1997)
Settlement of barnacle, a major fouling organism is believed to be controlled to a great extent by substratum characteristics such as, presence of conspecific adults or "gregariousness" inducing factors. Exopolymers secreted ...
स्थिरक भार जल टैंक में बायोफिल्म- सूक्ष्मजीव परिवहन के लिए संवाहक
(CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, 2012)
Larval development and metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite Darwin (Cirripedia; Thoracica): Significance of food concentration, temperature and nucleic acids
The influence of food concentration (Chaetoceros calcitrans at 1 x 10 sup(5) and 2 x 10 sup(5) cells ml sup(-1)) and temperature (20 degrees C and 30 degrees C) on the nucleic acid content of the nauplii and the cyprids ...
Exploration and metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite Darwin (Cirripedia ; Thoracica) cyprids: significance of sugars and adult extract
Earlier observations have shown that sugars in solution adsorb electrostatically through –OH groups to polar groups associated with the cypris larva temporary adhesive (CTA). Lens culinaris agglutinin (LCA)-binding sugar ...
समुद्री अम्लीकरण का जीव और कीट डिंभको पर प्रभाव
(National Institute of Oceanography (CSIR), India, 2012)
Identification of Balanus amphitrite larvae from field zooplankton using species-specific primers
(Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, 2015)
Identification of marine invertebrate larvae using morphological characters is laborious and complicated by phenotypic plasticity. Balanus amphitrite is a dominant barnacle, important in the context of intertidal ecology ...
Potential ballast water transfer of organisms from the west to the east coast of India: Insights through on board sampling
The possibility of translocation of organisms via ship's ballast water (BW) during a voyage from Hazira on the west coast to Visakhapatnam on the east coast of India was assessed. Samples of BW during the voyage and discharge ...
Changes in the ballast water tank bacterial community during a trans-sea voyage: Elucidation through next generation DNA sequencing
(Academic Press, 2020)
Ballast water (BW) mediated bioinvasion is one of the greatest threats to the health of aquatic ecosystems. Bacteria, unlike higher organisms, are transferred in large numbers through BW. Owing to their abundance and ...
