Trace metal concentrations in zooplankton from the eastern Arabian Sea and western Bay of Bengal
(Taylor and Francis, 2008)
Trace metal contents in zooplankton samples were estimated as a part of the Marine Research-Living Resource program at 24 stations in the Bay of Bengal (November, 2002) and 29 stations in the Arabian Sea (September-October, ...
Influence of upwelling on distribution of chaetognath (zooplankton) in the oxygen deficient zone of the eastern Arabian Sea.
he study addresses the coupled spatial scales in the physico-chemical variables and chaetognaths in the upwelling system of the eastern Arabian Sea during the 2005 summer monsoon. We studied the taxon between 0 and 1000 m ...
Impact of oxygen-depleted water on the vertical distribution of chaetognaths in the northeastern Arabian Sea
The influence of a thick layer of oxygen-depleted water (<0.2 ml l sup(-1)) on the abundance and distribution of chaetognaths was investigated in the northeastern Arabian Sea (NEAS), a natural oxygen-deficient system in ...
Zooplankton variability and copepod assemblage in the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa along the central-west coast of India
(Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, 1998)
Seasonal variations in zooplankton distribution and community structure of copepod species in coastal and estuarine waters of Goa along the central-west coast of India are compared in relation to water temperature, salinity ...
A comparative study on mesozooplankton abundance and diversity between a protected and an unprotected coastal area of Andaman Islands.
The study was carried out to understand the variability in phytoplankton production (Chlorophyll a) and mesozooplankton diversity from two different shallow coastal regions of south Andaman viz. Port Blair Bay (PBB), the ...
Hydrographic and productivity characteristics along 45 degrees E longitude in the southwestern Indian Ocean and Southern Ocean during austral summer 2004
During the austral summer 2004, an intensive multidisciplinary survey was carried out in the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean to study the main hydrographic features and the associated productivity processes. This ...
Standing stock and biochemical composition of zooplankton in the northeastern Arabian Sea
During November-December 1985 - a period of this study showed significant difference in biomass (dry weight) among the coastal and oceanic waters. Ostracods were the predominant component (47 per cent) in the coastal zone ...
Zooplankton composition of the Kalpeni and Agatti atolls, Lakshadweep archiplago
Composition of zooplankton in the lagoons was quite different from that of the sea and to a large extent, was independent of oceanic influence While copepods were dominant in the sea, meroplankton, particularly brachyuran ...
Zooplankton variability in the Zuari estuary, Goa
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1983)
Short term variability in the secondary production and composition of zooplankton were studied during February to March 1979 by collecting zooplankton every alternate day from a station located near the mouth of Zuari. ...
Toxicity of some heavy metals to Copepods Acartia Spinicauda and Tortanus Forcipatus
Copper was most toxic to the species tested followed by cadmium and zinc The estuarine species Acartia spinicauda was more sensitive to the toxicants that the marine species Tortanus forcipatus The 48 hr LC50 values are presented.
