Organic Carbon content of Tropical Zooplankton
In the Zuari and Mandovi estuaries variations in organic carbon of zooplankton are 26.4-38.8 and 24-39.9% of dry weight respectively. Maximum carbon content of estuarine zooplankton is observed in November. Organic carbon ...
Benthic Studies in Goa Estuaries. Part 3. Annual Cycle of Macrofaunal Distribution, Production and Trophic Relations
Macrobenthos in Mandovi, Cumbarjua canal and Zuari estuaries, a physically interconnected tropical estuarine system which undergoes large seasonal changes in salinity distribution due to heavy monsoonal precipitation, is ...
Beach Morphological Variations over Micro-Time Scales
Nature and magnitude of beach changes over short periods have been studied at Calangute and Miramar in relation to tide, ground water level and relevant oceanographic and meteorological factors. Alternating zones of accretion ...
Seasonal Variations in Secondary Production of the Mandovi-Zuari Estuarine System of Goa
Mean rates of secondary production in the Mandovi, Zuari and Cumbarjua canal, Goa, India were 16.9, 35.9 and 32.4 mg C/m2/day respectively. The general hydrographic conditions of the Zuari were responsible for the higher ...
Planktonic Ostracods of the Northern Indian Ocean
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1980)
Thirty-two species of ostracods were identified from 712 samples collected from northern Indian Ocean. Two of them belong to Cypridinidae and the rest to Halocyprididae. Most of the species are common to those of the ...
Production and Associations of Zooplankton in Estuarine and Nearshore Waters of Goa
Zooplankton production in the Zuari and Mandovi estuaries indicated 2 peaks-one in November and another in March/April. In the nearshore waters very high value of zooplankton biomass was observed in April associated with ...
Seasonal Variations in the Microflora from Mangrove Swamps in Goa
Seasonal variations in bacterial and fungal counts from the water and sediment samples of mangrove ecosystem of Goa (India) show that this ecosystem supports a very high population of fungi and bacteria
