Biodiversidad y especiación críptica en los caprélidos (Crustacea: Amphipoda): ¿cuánto falta por descubrir?
(Asociacion Hombre y Territorio, 2016)
La biodiversidad en el medio marino está subestimada, particularmente en el caso de los invertebrados donde la presencia de especies crípticas es más frecuente de lo que se pensaba. Los anfípodos caprélidos, a pesar de su ...
Unravelling the origin and introduction pattern of the tropical species Paracaprella pusilla Mayer, 1890 (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Caprellidae) in temperate European waters: first molecular insights from a spatial and temporal perspective
(Pensoft Publishers, 2019)
Paracaprella pusilla Mayer, 1890 is a tropical caprellid species recently introduced to the Eastern Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the Mediterranean Sea. In this study, we used direct sequencing of mitochondrial ...
Environmental stress responses in sympatric congeneric crustaceans: Explaining and predicting the context-dependencies of invader impacts
The role of ecophysiology in mediating marine biological pollution is poorly known. Here we explore how physiological plasticity to environmental stress can explain and predict the context-dependencies of invasive species ...
Diversity, community structure and habitat use of molluscs in marinas from the Iberian Peninsula and Northern Africa
Although the number of marinas along shorelines has significantly increased during the last years, there is a lack of studies on mobile epifauna associated to floating pontoons or infauna inhabiting soft bottoms of marinas. ...
Long-distance dispersal, low connectivity and molecular evidence of a new cryptic species in the obligate rafter Caprella andreae Mayer, 1890 (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Caprellidae)
The amphipod Caprella andreae Mayer, 1890 was recorded for the first time in Southern Iberian Peninsula (36440 1500N, 3590 3800W). This species is the only obligate rafter of the suborder Caprellidea and has been reported ...
A new species of Caprella (Crustacea: Amphipoda) from the Mediterranean Sea
A new caprellid amphipod, Caprella tavolarensis n. sp., is described based on specimens collected from a Posidonia oceanica seagrass meadow at the TavolaraPunta Coda Cavallo Marine Protected Area (Sardinia, Mediterranean ...
Effects of ocean acidification on the biochemistry, physiology and parental transfer of Ampelisca brevicornis (Costa, 1853)
Ocean acidification (OA) has received more attention in the marine research community in recent years than any other topic. Excess carbon dioxide makes the ocean more acidic, threatening marine ecosystems. There has been ...
Caprellid assemblages (Crustacea: Amphipoda) in shallow waters invaded by Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea from southeastern Spain
Growth of the invasive algae Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea in shallow habitats may inXuence the faunal assemblage composition. We studied its eVects on caprellid assemblages associated with shallow-water habitats ...
Community structure of caprellids (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Caprellidae) on seagrasses from southern Spain
The community structure of caprellids inhabiting two species of seagrass (Cymodocea nodosa and Zostera marina) was investigated on the Andalusian coast, southern Spain, using uni and multivariate analyses. Three ...
The tropical caprellid amphipod Paracaprella pusilla: a new alien crustacean in the Mediterranean Sea
Paracaprella pusilla Mayer (Fauna und Flora des Golfes von Neapel 17:1–55, 1890), originally described from Brazil, is one of the most abundant caprellid amphipod species in tropical and subtropical seas around the world. ...
