Present status of the endangered limpet Cymbula nigra (Gastropoda: Patellidae) in Ceuta: how do substrate heterogeneity and area accessibility affect population structure?
Situación actual en Ceuta de la lapa Cymbula nigra (Gastropoda, Patellidae), una especie en peligro: ¿cómo afecta la heterogeneidad del substrato y la accesibilidad del área a la estructura de las poblaciones?— Cymbula ...
New records of copepods associated with marine invertebrates from the Strait of Gibraltar and nearby areas
(Museu de Ciencies Naturals de Barcelona, 1997)
In this work, 16 species of commensal or parasitic copepods associated with marine invertebrates from the Strait of Gibraltar are recorded. Eleven species are included into the order Cyclopoida, three into Poecilostomatoida, ...
Marine exotic isopods from the Iberian Peninsula and nearby waters
Effective management of marine bioinvasions starts with prevention, communication among the scientific community and comprehensive updated data on the distribution ranges of exotic species. Despite being a hotspot for ...
The benthic Gammaridea (Crustacea, Amphipoda) fauna of Algeciras Bay (Strait of Gibraltar): distributional ecology and some biogeographical considerations
(BMC (parte de Springer Nature), 1999)
The Gammaridea fauna of Algeciras Bay, located on the Mediterranean side of the Strait of Gibraltar, was studied with regard to the species composition, distribution and ecology. Of the 116 species identified, 13 are ...
Disentangling the Taxonomic Status of Caprella penantis sensu stricto (Amphipoda: Caprellidae) Using an Integrative Approach
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022)
Despite its importance in intertidal and shallow-water marine ecosystems, Caprella penantis continues to be one of the most taxonomically challenging amphipods in the world. A recent molecular study focusing on C. penantis ...
Fatty acid composition of the Caprellidea (Crustacea: Amphipoda) from the Strait of Gibraltar
(Consejo Superior de Investigaciones, Instituto de Ciencias del Mar, 2004)
The total fatty acid composition of nine species of caprellidean amphipods collected from the Strait of Gibraltar was investigated. All caprellids were characterised by high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, mainly ...
Redescription of Caprella hirsuta Mayer, 1890 (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Caprellidea) from the Strait of Gibraltar
(Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona, 2001)
Caprella hirsuta Mayer, 1890 is redescribed based on specimens collected from the Strait of Gibraltar (Southern Spain-Northern Africa) during a study of the amphipod fauna from these coasts. Careful examination of these ...
Monitoring Extreme Impacts of Rugulopteryx okamurae (Dictyotales, Ochrophyta) in El Estrecho Natural Park (Biosphere Reserve). Showing Radical Changes in the Underwater Seascape
(Frontiers Media, 2021)
The invasive macroalga Rugulopteryx okamurae represents an unprecedented case of bioinvasion by marine macroalgae facing the European coasts. Since the first apparition of the species in the Strait of Gibraltar in 2015, ...
The Invasive Macroalga Rugulopteryx okamurae: Substrata Plasticity and Spatial Colonization Pressure on Resident Macroalgae
(Frontiers Media, 2021)
The present study constitutes the first evaluation of the space colonization strategies performed by Rugulopteryx okamurae when co-occurring with the resident macroalgal community in the introduced areas. Since the first ...
