Nephroselmis viridis (Nephroselmidophyceae, Chlorophyta), a new record for the Atlantic Ocean based on molecular phylogeny and ultrastructure
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Abstract Nephroselmis is composed by unicellular nanoplanktonic organisms, occurring predominantly in marine environments. Currently, 14 species are taxonomically accepted. Nephroselmis ...
The Impacts of Inter-El Nino Variability on the Tropical Atlantic and Northeast Brazil Climate
(AMER METEOROLOGICAL SOC, 2011)
In this study, observations and numerical simulations are used to investigate how different El Nino events affect the development of SST anomalies in the Atlantic and how this relates to the Brazilian northeast (NE) ...
Horizontal and vertical distribution of mesozooplankton species richness and composition down to 2,300 m in the southwest Atlantic Ocean
We describe the species richness, distribution and composition of mesozooplankton over the continental shelf and slope, and in the water masses in the Campos Basin, southwest Atlantic Ocean. We analyzed the mesozooplankton ...
The early rainy season in Central America: the role of thetropical North Atlantic SSTs
We explored the relationship between the precipitation anomalies during May to June as the first peak of the rainy season in the Pacific slope of Central America, and sea surface temperature (SST) fluctuations in the ...
Water mass reconstruction by Nd isotopic analysis from Mid Atlantic oceanic sediments
(Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), 2015)
Growth and maturity of the spider crab Halicarcinus planatus (Brachyura: Hymenosomatidae) females in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean. Can these parameters be influenced by the population sex ratio?
(Taylor & Francis, 2016-06)
The Halicarcinus planatus populations of the southwestern Atlantic Ocean show a highly variable sex ratio and a large size overlapping between females in the last immature instar (ADO) and mature (MAT) females. We hypothesized ...
Consumption of marine mammals by broadnose sevengill shark Notorynchus cepedianus in the northern and central Patagonian shelf
(Latin American Journal Of Aquatic Mammals, 2003-07)
The study of food habits of the broadnose sevengill shark (Notorynchus cepedianus) based on the observation of the stomach contents of 22 individuals, revealed the importance of marine mammals as part of the shark's diet. ...
Defensive strategies of neonate nurse sharks, Ginglymostoma cirratum, in an oceanic archipelago of the Western Central Atlantic
Two defensive tactics of neonates of nurse sharks, Ginglymostoma cirratum, are reported based on underwater observations. Described as "hiding behaviour" and "substrate resemblance", the defensive ...
