Guarau River Estuary Zooplankton, Southeastern Brazil (OBIS South America, BRAZIL)
Entry ID: Guarau_Estuary_Zooplankton

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The structure and seasonal variability of zooplankton associations were analysed over a 1-year period in the Gauarau River Estuary (Southeast Brazil). The spatial segregation of the zooplankton was mainly conditioned by the longitudinal salinity gradient, as revealed by multivariate analysis (see additional information in the publication).
