Echinaster graminicola, a new species of spinulosid sea star (Echinodermata: Asteroidea) from the west coast of Florida
A new species of the sea-star genus Echinaster is described from shallow-water seagrass and oyster beds of the west coast of Florida. The new speciesand E. spinulosus Verrill are sibling species, morphologically ...
A redescription of Echinaster Modestus Perrier, 1881 (Asteroidea: Spinulosida) from the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the West Indies
The seastar Echinaster modestus Perrier, 1881, is redescribed and a lectotype is designated. Echinaster spp. from the west coast of Florida used in recent experimental studies are not E. modestus.
FACTORS INFLUENCING SEAGRASS ECOLOGY IN THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON
Effects of water depth, water temperature, light intensity, epiphyte coverage, detrital accumulation and sediment resuspension and shifting on seagrass ecology in the Indian River Lagoon system were studied from April 1977 ...
THE DIET OF THE FLORIDA POMPANO (TRACHINOTUS CAROLINUS) ALONG THE EAST COAST OF CENTRAL FLORIDA
The diet of the Florida pompano (Trachinotus carolinus) was investigated hy examining stomach contents of adults from the Indian River and juveniles from the surf zone off Brevard County. Juveniles consumed primarily henthic ...
A NEW METHOD FOR IMPROVED FIXATION OF THE CHICK'S INNER EAR
Our method for fixation of the chick's inner ear involves puncturing the soft temporal bone with a needle and directly flushing the membranous labyrinth with cold glutaraldehyde. The temporal bone is trimmed and immersed ...
Genetic recombination in Nocardia asteroides
Gene recombination between strains of N. asteroides of diverse origins has been demonstrated. In particular pairwise combinations, recombinants made up 0.01% of the population. All nine selectable recombinant classes were ...
PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFERA COLLECTED BY THE R/V MELVILLE (1972) IN THE SOUTHWEST ATLANTIC
The planktonic foraminiferal fauna was studied from 186 samples collected by the R/V Melville in the Southwest Atlantic Ocean during 1972. The samples were collected in the surface layer (horizontal tows) and throughout ...
BENTHIC TESTACIDA (RHIZOPODA, PROTOZOA) OF LAKE WASHINGTON, BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA
Benthic Testacida from sediments of Lake Washington were studied. The Testacida were extracted using standard foraminiferologic techniques. The determined taxa were photographed using scanning electron microscopy. Twenty-one ...
GROUNDWATER SEEPAGE INTO THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON AT PORT ST LUCIE
A finite element program, GROSEEP, was developed to estimate the groundwater seepage from the surficial aquifer into Indian River lagoon along a selected cross-section in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The model is a general ...
