Length–weight relationships of eleven mesopelagic fishes from oceanic islands of the Southwestern Tropical Atlantic

This study provides the length‐weight relationship for eleven mesopelagic fishes from oceanic islands of the Southwestern Tropical Atlantic: Bonapartia pedaliota, Sigmops elongatus (Gonostomatidae), Argyropelecus aculeatus,

Length–weight relationship of thirteen demersal fishes from the tropical Brazilian continental shelf

Length–weight relationship of thirteen demersal fishes from the tropical Brazilian continental shelf

This study provides the length‐weight relationship (LWR) for 13 demersal fish species belonging to 11 families and 8 orders. Data were collected in the northeast

Spatial scales of marine conservation management for breeding seabirds

Spatial scales of marine conservation management for breeding seabirds

Knowing the spatial scales at which effective management can be implemented is fundamental for conservation planning. This is especially important for mobile species, which can

Identifying key habitat and spatial patterns of fish biodiversity in the tropical Brazilian continental shelf

Identifying key habitat and spatial patterns of fish biodiversity in the tropical Brazilian continental shelf

Knowledge of the spatial distribution of fish assemblages biodiversity and structure is essential for prioritizing areas of conservation. Here we describe the biodiversity and community

First Report of the Ectoparasitic Isopod, Holophryxus acanthephyrae Stephensen 1912 (Cymothoida: Dajidae) in the South Atlantic: Recovered from a New Host, the Deep-Sea Shrimp, Acanthephyra acanthitelsonis Spence Bate, 1888

First Report of the Ectoparasitic Isopod, Holophryxus acanthephyrae Stephensen 1912 (Cymothoida: Dajidae) in the South Atlantic: Recovered from a New Host, the Deep-Sea Shrimp, Acanthephyra acanthitelsonis Spence Bate, 1888

The crustacean family of isopods, Dajidae, comprises 18 genera containing 54 species with widespread distribution. The species of this family are ectoparasites, especially on euphausiids,

First record of a rare deep-sea copepod, Gaussia intermedia Defaye, 1998 (Calanoida, Metridinidae), from the Atlantic Ocean

First record of a rare deep-sea copepod, Gaussia intermedia Defaye, 1998 (Calanoida, Metridinidae), from the Atlantic Ocean

Copepod crustaceans of the genus Gaussia inhabit open ocean waters in epipelagic and bathypelagic zones from 0 to 5000 m. They show high-speed vertical migration

Seabirds fighting for land: phenotypic consequences of breeding area constraints at a small remote archipelago

Seabirds fighting for land: phenotypic consequences of breeding area constraints at a small remote archipelago

Identifying associations between phenotypes and environmental parameters is crucial for understanding how natural selection acts at the individual level. In this context, genetically isolated populations
