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 ...
Gene flow in the Antarctic bivalve Aequiyoldia eightsii (Jay, 1839) suggests a role for the Antarctic Peninsula Coastal Current in larval dispersal
(Royal Society Open Science, 2020-08-21)
The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) dominates the open-ocean circulation of the Southern Ocean, and both isolates and connects the Southern Ocean biodiversity. However, the impact on biological processes of other ...
Post-disturbance genetic changes: the impact of the 2010 mega-earthquake and tsunami on chilean sandy beach fauna
(Scientific reports, 2019-10-02)
Earthquake/tsunamis can have profound impacts on species and their genetic patterns. It is expected that the magnitude of this impact might depend on the species and the time since the disturbance occurs, nevertheless ...
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 ...
Post-settlement movement as response to interspecific competition between the bioengineer mussels Semimytilus algosus and Perumytilus purpuratus
(Journal of Sea Research, 2019-12)
Post-settlement movement has been reported mainly in marine species with low or reduced adult mobility, where distribution varies in accordance with ontogeny, thus avoiding or reducing environmental stress or biological ...
