New polymorphic microsatellite markers for the pelagic fish Normanichthys crockeri
The coastal pelagic fish Normanichthys crockeri inhabits the southeast Pacific coast and is a monotypic species of the Normanichthyidae family. Its ecologically and economic importance, and the high fishing pressure it is ...
Development and characterization of microsatellite markers for the toadfish Aphos porosus.
The toadfish Aphos porosus is a coastal benthic-demersal fish from the Southeastern Pacific coast. This species exhibits parental care and low dispersal potential, and it is subjected to bycatch by artisanal and industrial ...
Role of the larval feeding morphology and digestive enzyme activity in the early development of the polychaete Boccardia wellingtonensis
In marine invertebrates, the modes of development at early stages are related to the type and capacity of larval feeding to achieve growth. Therefore, studying the factors that determine larval feeding strategies can help ...
Habitat type drives the distribution of non‐indigenous species in fouling communities regardless of associated maritime traffic
(Diversity & Distributions, 2020-01)
Aim: Biological invasions and changes in land and sea use are among the five major causes of global biodiversity decline. Shipping and ocean sprawl (multiplication of artificial structures at the expense of natural ...
Bioenergetics of parental investment in two polychaete species with contrasting reproductive strategies: the planktotrophic Boccardia chilensis and the poecilogonic Boccardia wellingtonensis (Spionidae)
(Marine Ecology, 2020)
The level of parental investment for larval nutrition may determine the life cycle in marine invertebrate species laying egg masses or capsules, where the food available for enclosed individuals would determine time and ...
