Abstract A bibliographic survey of macro-zoobenthic species colonizing natural and artificial subtidal formations scattered off the Venetian coasts (North Adriatic Sea, Italy) was realized to update and organize the hard to find and fragmentary information on species lists and functional groups, with the aim to contribute to the ecological analysis of the hard substrate habitat. The results of the survey carried out at 39 sites revealed high species richness especially in the broader rocky outcr...

Abstract This study assessed ovarian dynamics in picarel and examined how it can be implemented in routine calculations of batch fecundity and spawning interval. Samples of picarel were collected in Saronikos Gulf, Greece, and ovaries were examined through both histological and whole mount procedures. Three different and independent approaches were applied to assess ovarian modality: (a) the multimodal analysis in oocyte size frequency distributions (OSFD), (b) the histological grouping of oocyt...

Abstract The Gulf of Cadiz represents an area of extensive seepage of the south-western Iberian Peninsula that is located between two continents and basins, where a high geomorphologic, sedimentary and environmental complexity occurs. In the present study, epibenthic communities were investigated in a mud volcano field containing four mud volcanoes (Gazul, Anastasya, Pipoca and Tarsis), one diapir/mud volcano complex (Chica) and several diapirs that are all located in the upper and middle slope ...
Abstract The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted a ballast water convention to prevent spread of invasive species with ballast water and with it comes the need for fast and reliable tests to estimate the number of viable organisms found in ballast water. During 2017 and 2018, computer-assisted automatic quantification of plankton was compared with direct microscopic counts. Analysed samples represented simulations of ballast water samples from Denmark. Samples consisted of live...

Abstract The invasive mussel Xenostrobus securis was first recorded from Galicia (NW Spain) in 2007, within an area characterized by the commercial culture of Mytilus galloprovincialis. This study investigated the spatial variability in reproduction of X. securis at three adjacent locations over a period of twelve months and the temporal variation at one location over two consecutive years. This is the first such study conducted outside its native range and in which the influences of temperature...
Abstract Fluctuating sea levels are an important element of hydrodynamic processes that occur in coastal regions. Extreme sea levels – i.e. the highest and lowest levels recorded over many years in a given year or in a given storm event – can stimulate currents, sea abrasion, and the accumulation of sedimentary material in various coastal sections. The objective of this study was to examine the geographical diversity of extreme sea levels along the entire Baltic Sea coast based on hourly sea lev...
Abstract With the intensification of urban development, agriculture, and forestry, many coastal waters are becoming enriched with nitrogen (N). Long term, excess terrestrial N accumulates in the sediment porewaters impacting benthic fauna and microphytobenthic productivity, altering the complex bio-geophysical interactions that occur on the seafloor. These interactions may influence sediment erodibility and resuspension rates on the seafloor, which have wider ecosystem consequences through chang...

Abstract The effects of climate change and associated increases in temperature on organisms are a major focus of scientific research, but how these impacts play out within ecological contexts is complex and hence often ignored. For example, the influence of predation risk (nonconsumptive effects, NCEs) can alter behavior, creating scenarios where individual physiological responses depend on the interaction between abiotic conditions, such as temperature, and the presence of risk in the environme...

Abstract In intertidal environments, temperature changes at hourly scales are ecologically relevant because of the physiological stress that organisms must endure as a result. Tides constitute the main source of such changes, as low tides periodically expose intertidal habitats to aerial conditions, which can exhibit extreme high and low temperatures in summer and winter, respectively. This study identifies a source of strong hourly thermal variation that acts upon seawater temperature. Hours af...
