Seafaring scientist : Alfred Goldsborough Mayor, pioneer in marine biology by Lester D Stephens( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seafaring Scientist recounts the achievements of a giant in the field of marine biology. Alfred Goldsborough Mayor (1868-1922), a Harvard-trained marine biologist and close associate of Alexander Agassiz, founded and directed on behalf of the Carnegie Institution the first tropical marine biological laboratory in the Western Hemisphere. Located on Loggerhead Key in the Gulf of Mexico, the Tortugas Laboratory under Mayor's leadership attracted some of America's most brilliant scientists. Mayor himself achieved international prominence in the field of biology for his authoritative work on jellyfishes and coral reefs." "Lester D. Stephens and Dale R. Calder fill the gaps in the historical record about Mayor with this first book-length account of his life and work. They detail Mayor's passion for biology, association with Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, and rise to international prominence in the scientific community. Few field naturalists could claim to have visited as many truly exotic locales as Mayor, who traveled throughout the South Pacific and indeed around the world before returning to the United States to establish a research station at Dry Tortugas in 1904." "Illustrated with twenty-four black-and-white photographs, three diagrams, and eight color illustrations drawn by Mayor, who was also a gifted artist, Seafaring Scientist describes Mayor's determination to develop the Tortugas Laboratory despite daunting operational problems related to the remoteness of the site and its vulnerability to hurricanes. Stephens and Calder enumerate the contributions made by Mayor and other investigators at the outpost and discuss Mayor's three-volume opus, Medusae of the World." "Written to appeal to the armchair explorer as well as the professional researcher, Seafaring Scientist captures the thrills of scientific quest and discovery as well as the trials of seeking support and recognition that defined the life of this extraordinary marine biologist."--Jacket

Shallow-water hydroids of Bermuda : the Thecatae, exclusive of Plumularioidea by Dale R Calder( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a systematic and nomenclatural review of the thecate hydroids of Bermuda, collected at depths from the intertidal zone to 100 m. The report does not include the superfamily Plumularioidea L. Agassiz, 1862. Synonymies of each of the 9 families, 27 genera, and 46 species represented are given, and descriptions and illustrations are provided for each species. Several new taxa are described: Halecium lightbourni, sp. nov.; Hebellopsis communis, sp. nov.; and Sertularella gayi unituba, subsp. nov. Salacia fraseri is proposed as a replacement name for the junior primary homonym Thuiaria distans Fraser, 1914 (not Thuiaria distans Allman, 1877). The genus Lafoeina M. Sars, 1874, is restricted to stolonal species corresponding with Lafoeina tenuis, type species of the genus. Keratosum Hargitt, 1909, is recognized for those species resembling Lafoeina but having an erect, polysiphonic rhizocaulus. Endothecium Fraser, 1935b; Hebellopsis Hadzi, 1913; and Tridentata STechow, 1920, are re-established as the valid names of genera. Evidence is presented that the families Campanulinidae Hincks, 1868, and Eirenidae Haeckel, 1879, are identical. Of the 46 species discussed, 25 are reported from Bermuda for the first time, 37 have been recorded elsewhere in the western North Atlantic, and 18 are believed to be circumglobal in warm waters

Ecological effects of rubble weir jetty construction at Murrells Inlet, South Carolina by David M Knott( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beach and nearshore areas were sampled at Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, to evaluate the effects of jetty construction on the benthic macroinvertebrate communities in those habitats. Quantitative samples were collected seasonally during jetty construction (1977-78) and again 5 years later along transects located adjacent to and distant from the jetties. Polychaetes, amphipods, and pelecypods were the dominant organisms in both the intertidal and subtidal zones during jetty construction. Although differences were noted in the community structure between these zones, several of the dominant species were abundant in both habitats. Five years later, some of these species were not commonly observed, and oligochaetes and nematodes were abundant in the area. Many of these differences were attributed to normal seasonal and yearly variations. Changes resulting from jetty construction included increased species diversity in a wave-sheltered area, as well as changes in abundance and species composition near the jetties. Many of the observed changes were short term or limited to the area between the jetties where sediment characteristics were altered
