Amphipods from marine cave sediments of the southern Iberian Peninsula: diversity and ecological distribution
(Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC), 2014)
The present study explores the amphipod assemblages of six marine caves on the Mediterranean coast of southern Spain. Replicate samples were taken both inside and outside each marine cave in order to characterize the ...

Colonization and successional patterns of the mobile epifaunal community along an environmental gradient in a marine cave
(Inter Research, 2015)
In spite of the high importance of mobile epifauna in all marine habitats, their pat terns of colonization and succession in marine caves have not been studied until now. In the pres ent study, we used artificial substrates ...
