Avoiding quantification bias in metabarcoding: Application of a cell biovolume correction factor in diatom molecular biomonitoring
(Methods in Ecology and Evolution, 2017-12-26)
In recent years, remarkable progress has been made in developing environmental DNA metabarcoding. However, its ability to quantify species relative abundance remains uncertain, limiting its application for biomonitoring. ...
Rapid screening and multi-toxin profile confirmation of tetrodotoxins and analogues in human body fluids derived from a puffer fish poisoning incident in New Caledonia
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2017-12-30)
In August 2014, a puffer fish poisoning incidence resulting in one fatality was reported in New Caledonia. Although tetrodotoxin (TTX) intoxication was established from the patients' signs and symptoms, the determination ...
Bed load transport and incipient motion below a large gravel bed river bend
(Advances in Water Resources, 2017-08-08)
A new data set of bed load measurements in a cross-section at the exit of a river bend is presented. Data are analyzed to identify processes that contribute to the morphodynamic stability of gravel bed meanders. It is shown ...
Adult spawning and early larval development of the endangered bivalve Pinna nobilis
The development of aquaculture activities has posed an alternative solution for the preservation of some overexploited shellfish fisheries worldwide. In the same way, endemic Mediterranean bivalves such as Pinna nobilis, ...
Occurrence of cyclic imines in European commercial seafood and consumers risk assessment
(Environmental Research, 2017-12-01)
Cyclic imines constitute a quite recently discovered group of marine biotoxins that act on neural receptors and that bioaccumulate in seafood. They are grouped together due to the imino group functioning as their common ...
