A new species of Calanopia (Copepoda, Calanoida) from the central Red Sea

Unal, E
Shmeleva, AA
A new species of calanoid copepod, Calanopia kideysi, has been found in the central Red Sea. An adult female and a young male of the 5(th) copepodite stage are described. Comparisons are made between the new species and the other similar Indo-Pacific forms from the Red Sea: Calanopia minor A. Scott, 1902, and Calanopia n. sp. A (Uysal & Shmeleva, submitted). The new copepod is without lateral cephalic hooks and can be distinguished from these other small Calanopia species by the shape of its genital somite and by the structure of the fifth legs in female specimens. The proximal segment of the fifth leg of the female of C kideysi n. sp. is without seta on the posterior surface, whereas C minor and C n. sp. A both have a seta on the proximal segment of the fifth leg.


The experimental analysis on the Late Quaternary deposits of the Black Sea
Tekiroglu, SE; Ediger, V; Yemenicioglu, S; Kapur, S; Akca, E (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-01)
Holocene sediments taken from the south-eastern and western Black Sea have been investigated in relation to their geochemical, sedimentological and mineralogical characteristics. Their textures are characterized by their low amount of sand, upward-increasing silt and downward-increasing clay contents. While the terrigenous materials transported from Anatolian volcanic-based sources and European alluvial sediments form the shore deposits, the deep-sea sediments mainly consist of the marine biological product...
Fish and mucus-dwelling bacteria interact to produce a kairomone that induces diel vertical migration in Daphnia
Beklioğlu, Meryem; Gözen, Ayşe Gül (Wiley, 2006-12-01)
1. Bacterial populations associated with fish have previously been documented to be crucial for the production of chemical signals governing the interactions between predator fish and zooplankton prey.
Modelling phytoplankton succession on the Bering Sea shelf: role of climate influences and trophic interactions in generating Emiliania huxleyi blooms 1997-2000
Merico, A; Tyrrell, T; Lessard, EJ; Oguz, T; Stabeno, PJ; Zeeman, SI; Whitledge, TE (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
Several years of continuous physical and biological anomalies have been affecting the Bering Sea shelf ecosystem starting from 1997. Such anomalies reached their peak in a striking visual phenomenon: the first appearance in the area of bright waters caused by massive blooms of the coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi (E huxleyi). This study is intended to provide an insight into the mechanisms of phytoplankton succession in the south-eastern part of the shelf during such years and addresses the causes of E. hu...

A new species of Acantholimon Boiss. sect. Glumaria Boiss. (Plumbaginaceae) from Elazig, Turkey
Dogan, M; Akaydin, G (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2005-11-01)
A new species, Acantholimon evrenii sp. nov. is described and illustrated for the first time in sect. Glumaria from Turkey. The species is confined to B7 Elazig in East Anatolia where it grows on rocky mountain steppes. The diagnostic morphological characters from closely related species are given, along with a discussion dealing with its taxonomic relationship. Its conservation status is indicated. A revised key is also provided for the Acantholimon species with heterophyllous leaves, two or more flowered ...
