    AZTI-Tecnalia organized the XVII edition of SIEBM – Iberian Symposium on Marine Biology Studies, in Donostia – San Sebastián, from 11th to 14th September 2012. The objectives of the Symposia are to show the recent advances in marine biology research, within the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal, Spain and the Maccaronesian islands) and also South American countries. The research topics covered by the Symposium, divided in scientific sessions, include aquaculture and parasitism; benthic ecology; ecological assessment, environmental impacts and pollution monitoring; genetics and taxonomy; global change; management of living resources; modelling and habitat suitability; pelagic ecology; restoration, conservation and planning; and, finally, a miscellaneous section. A special session on marine environment assessment has been organized, related to the European Water Framework Directive and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. This article is the contribution given to the Symposium by the DEVOTES Coordinator, Àngel Borja

    Analyzes critically Naval Arctic Research Laboratory studies of the continental shelf organisms, beginning 1948, and those of the deep basin plankton and bottom organisms, beginning 1952. Because of many factors, the scope of work has been limited and mainly devoted to inventory taking. What remains to be done is noted with specific suggestions for future development; systematics, microscopy, ecology and animal behavior, embryology and life cycles, physiology and biochemistry of marine forms, and study of marine fishes and mammals on the shelf are treated in turn

    Acoustics in water: synergies with marine biology

    Get PDF
    This paper presents some of the bioacoustics related analysis that was performed on the ANTARES data, focussing on the year 2014. The data was processed for sperm whale, dolphin and shipping presence and grouped by hour of the day. It seemed that dolphins were more socially active during the day and foraging during the night. Sperm whales were mostly foraging during the day, but they may have been moving to other areas during the night. The most intense shipping noise came from a ferry that passed the platform twice a day. Although beaked whales were expected to be present in the area, so far their biosonar signal has not been conclusively found.Postprint (published version

    A review of the biology and management of horseshoe crabs, with emphasis on Florida populations

    Get PDF
    In Florida, some horseshoe crabs are fished for eel bait, but they are fished principally by the marine-life industry, which collects the animals live for resale as aquarium, research, or educational specimens. The regulations for the horseshoe crab fisheries are developed by each state in compliance with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) Horseshoe Crab Management Plan. This report was written to provide information on the biology, stock status, and management of horseshoe crabs and the implications relevant to the request for an increased bag limit by harvesters in the marine-life industry

    The NASA planetary biology internship experience

    Get PDF
    By providing students from around the world with the opportunity to work with established scientists in the fields of biogeochemistry, remote sensing, and origins of life, among others, the NASA Planetary Biology Internship (PBI) Program has successfully launched many scientific careers. Each year approximately ten interns participate in research related to planetary biology at NASA Centers, NASA-sponsored research in university laboratories, and private institutions. The PBI program also sponsors three students every year in both the Microbiology and Marine Ecology summer courses at the Marine Biological Laboratory. Other information about the PBI Program is presented including application procedure

    Synoptic review of the Literature on the southern oyster drill Thais haemastoma floridana

    Get PDF
    This literature search identifies a majority of the publications in the period 1880-1980 concerned with the marine gastropod, Thais haemastomafloridmul (Conrad). The southern oyster drill is an economically important oyster predator in the western Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico littoral. Major contributions of each paper to our knowledge of the drill's biology are briefly categorized. Hitherto unpublished research by the author on the snail's biology is documented. (PDF file contains 15 pages.
