  • Diversity and Phylogeny of Gymnodiniales (Dinophyceae) from the NW Mediterranean Sea Revealed by a Morphological and Molecular Approach

    Reñé, Albert; Camp, Jordi; Garcés, Esther (2015)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    The diversity and phylogeny of dinoflagellates belonging to the Gymnodiniales were studied during a 3-year period at several coastal stations along the Catalan coast (NW Mediterranean) by combining analyses of their morphological features with rDNA sequencing. This approach resulted in the detection of 59 different morphospecies, 13 of which were observed for the first time in the Mediterranean Sea. Fifteen of the detected species were HAB producers; four represented novel detections on the C...

    Are there species smaller than 1 mm?

    Rossberg, Axel G.; Rogers, Tim; McKane, Alan J. (2013)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    The rapid advance in genetic sequencing technologies has provided an unprecedented amount of data on the biodiversity of meiofauna. It was hoped that these data would allow the identification and counting of species, distinguished as tight clusters of similar genomes. Surprisingly, this appears not to be the case. Here, we begin a theoretical discussion of this phenomenon, drawing on an individual-based ecological model to inform our arguments. The determining factor in the emergence (or not)...

    Distribution of skates and sharks in the North Sea: 112 years of change

    Sguotti, C; Lynam, CP; Garc?a-Carreras, B; Ellis, JR; Engelhard, GH (2016)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Abstract How have North Sea skate and shark assemblages changed since the early 20th century when bottom trawling became widespread, whilst their environment became increasingly impacted by fishing, climate change, habitat degradation and other anthropogenic pressures? This article examines long-term changes in the distribution and occurrence of the elasmobranch assemblage of the southern North Sea, based on extensive historical time series (1902–2013) of fishery-independent survey data. ...

    In the darkness of the polar night, scallops keep on a steady rhythm

    Tran, Damien; Sow, Mohamedou; Camus, Lionel; Ciret, Pierre; Berge, Jørgen; Massabuau, Jean-Charles (2016)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Published version. Source at http://doi.org/10.1038/srep32435. License CC BY 4.0. Although the prevailing paradigm has held that the polar night is a period of biological quiescence, recent studies have detected noticeable activity levels in marine organisms. In this study, we investigated the circadian rhythm of the scallop Chlamys islandica by continuously recording the animal’s behaviour over 3 years in the Arctic (Svalbard). Our results showed that a circadian rhythm persists throug...

    Towards quantitative spatial models of seabed sediment composition

    Stephens D.; Diesing M. (2016)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    There is a need for fit-for-purpose maps for accurately depicting the types of seabed substrate and habitat and the properties of the seabed for the benefits of research, resource management, conservation and spatial planning. The aim of this study is to determine whether it is possible to predict substrate composition across a large area of seabed using legacy grain-size data and environmental predictors. The study area includes the North Sea up to approximately 58.44?N and the United Kingdo...

    Effort reduction and the large fish indicator: spatial trends reveal positive impacts of recent European fleet reduction schemes

    ENGELHARD, GEORGH; LYNAM, CHRISTOPHERP; GARC?A-CARRERAS, BERNARDO; DOLDER, PAULJ; MACKINSON, STEVEN (2015)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Summary The large fish indicator (LFI), or ‘proportion of fish greater than 40 cm length in bottom trawl surveys,’ is a frequently debated indicator of Good Environmental Status in European regional seas. How does the LFI respond to changes in fishing pressure? This question is addressed here through analysis of fine-scale spatial trends in the LFI within the North Sea, compared between two periods of contrasting fisheries management: 1983–1999 and 2000–2012, respectively, before and afte...

    Analysis of the implementation of the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive in the North-East Atlantic region

    Cavallo, Marianna (2018)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Embargo end date: 2018/03/25
    With the introduction of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD 2008/56/EC) the European Union has made an important step towards an ecosystem-based management of the EU seas. This Directive aims to overcome a sectoral approach to the management of maritime activities, promoting the integration among policies and coordination between Member States. The overall aim of this PhD project is to perform a comprehensive analysis about the level of coordination among countries of the North...

    Evaluation of Alternative High-Throughput Sequencing Methodologies for the Monitoring of Marine Picoplanktonic Biodiversity Based on rRNA Gene Amplicons

    Ferrera, Isabel; Giner, Caterina R.; Reñé, Albert; Camp, Jordi; Massana, Ramon; Gasol, Josep M.; Garcés, Esther (2016)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Abstract Sequencing of rRNA gene polymerase chain reaction amplicons (rRNA tags) is the most common approach for investigating microbial diversity. The recent development of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies has enabled the exploration of microbial biodiversity at an unprecedented scale, greatly expanding our knowledge on the microbiomes of marine ecosystems. These approaches provide accurate, fast, and cost efficient observations of the marine communities, and thus, may be s...

    Tales from a thousand and one ways to integrate marine ecosystem components when assessing the environmental status

    BORJA Angel; PRINS Theo; SIMBOURA Nomiki; ANDERSEN Jesper H.; BERG Torsten; MARQUES Joao Carlos; NETO João M.; PAPADOPOULOU Nadia; REKER Johnny; GONCALVES TEIXEIRA HELIANA; UUSITALO Laura (2014)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Assessing the environmental status of marine ecosystems is useful when communicating key messages to policymakers or the society, reducing the complex information of the multiple ecosystem and biodiversity components and their important spatial and temporal variability into manageable units. Taking into account the ecosystem components to be addressed (e.g., biological, chemical, physical), the numerous biodiversity elements to be assessed (e.g., from microbes to sea mammals), the different i...

    Trophic niche-space imaging, using resource and consumer traits

    Nagelkerke, Leopold A. J.; Rossberg, Axel G. (2014)
    Projects: EC | DEVOTES (308392)
    Abstract The strength of trophic (feeding) links between two species depends on the traits of both the consumer and the resource. But which traits of consumer and resource have to be measured to predict link strengths, and how many? A novel theoretical framework for systematically determining trophic traits from empirical data was recently proposed. Here we demonstrate this approach for a group of 14 consumer fish species (Labeobarbus spp., Cyprinidae) and 11 aquatic resource categories c...
