Oceans, Vol. 5, Pages 491-521: Cnida Morphology as Taxonomic Tools within Tube-Dwelling Anemones (Ceriantharia, Cnidaria) Oceans doi: 10.3390/oceans5030029 Authors: Anny C. Forero-Mejia Laurent Duchatelet Carina Östman Cnidome morphology appears to be a valuable tool for anthozoan (Octocarallia, Ceriantharia, and Hexacorallia) taxonomy. Ceriantharian cnidomes consist of b-mastigophores, isorhizas, spirocysts, and ptychocysts, including different subtypes. The b-mastigophores are the most valuable ceriantharian cnidae for species identification. The Ceriantharian b-mastigophore terminology is c ..read more

Oceans 2022, 3, 527–546 Oceans doi: 10.3390/oceans5030027 Authors: Samuel E. Kahng In warm oligotrophic waters, photosymbiotic coral can flourish across a wide depth range (0–170+ m), extending to depths where light attenuates to ~0.1% of surface values. Conventional wisdom has long assumed that mixotrophic corals must increasingly rely on heterotrophy as the ambient light available to drive photosynthesis decreases with depth. How ..read more

Asia dominates global macroalgae production, while European production is still marginal and mainly based on wild harvesting in the North Atlantic. The European Commission has launched initiativ ..read more

We examined the strandings along the Bulgarian coast of the Black Sea for a period of 13 years from 2010 to 2022. A total of 1528 cetacean strandings of all three species inhabiting the basin were recorded: 1031 harbour porpoises Phocoena phocoena, 199 bottlenose dolphins Tursi ..read more

Even though several studies identify the presence of microplastics in the world’s five oceans, there remains an overt problem of large inconsistencies in their sampling, extraction, and consequent quantification ..read more

Tems Eric Tappa This study presents a high-resolution record of δ15Nsed, which serves as a proxy for water column denitrification and oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) intensity, from the Soledad Basin in the Eastern Tropical North Pacific OMZ. The Soledad Basin δ15Nsed record is compared to the Pescadero Slope and Santa Barbara Basin (SBB) δ15Nsed records to gain insight i ..read more

However, neither the causes of this nor the responsible geophysical processes are sufficiently well understood. More detailed investigations of the different phenomena contributing to the oceanic energy balance are warranted. Here, the role of low-level marine cl ..read more
