Summary. My research interests centre around the taxonomy, ecology and biogeography of tropical marine algae and freshwater algae.

With the founding of marine and fisheries laboratories in many countries which took place around the turn of the century, interest in the benthos becltme more ecological, with particular reference t o the benthos as a source of fish food.

Quantitative studies were initiated in Denmark by C. by: Here we report novel data on the ecology and diversity of West African estuarine biological communities, with emphasis on the opisthobranch gastropod, Haminoea orbignyana.

Our examination of marine communities associated with oil platforms in Gabon is the first scientific investigation of these structures and highlights the unique ecosystems associated with them. A number of species previously unknown to Gabonese waters were recorded during our surveys on these platforms.

Krupa, Sophia S. Barinova, Sophia M. Romanova. An ecosystem is a higher level of organization the community plus its physical environment.

Ecosystems include both the biological and physical components affecting the community/ecosystem. We can study ecosystems from a structural view of population distribution or from a functional view of energy flow and other processes.

Marine mammals are aquatic mammals that rely on the ocean and other marine ecosystems for their existence. They include animals such as seals, whales, manatees, sea otters and polar are an informal group, unified only by their reliance on marine environments for feeding.

Marine mammal adaptation to an aquatic lifestyle varies considerably between species. Both cetaceans and. The contribution of carbonate‐producing benthic organisms to the global marine carbon budget has been overlooked, the prevailing view being that calcium carbonate (CaCO 3) is predominantly produced and exported by marine plankton in the “biological pump.”Here, we provide the first estimation of the global contribution of echinoderms to the marine inorganic and organic carbon cycle, based Cited by: A particular focus has been biological disturbance of unconsolidated marine sediments (reviewed by Carney, ; Gray, ; Lee and Swartz, ; Rhoads, ; Rhoads and Boyer, ).
