Whale falls promote high biodiversity on the ocean floor, providing rigid substrates, organic enrichment and free sulphides in typically oligotrophic environments such as the deep sea. Current hypotheses suggest the "organic islands" may have served as hot spots of adaptive radiation for a specialized fauna; they have also provided evolutionary stepping stones for vent and seep taxa. Th...
The present project aims a taxonomic survey of the species of polychaetes belonging to Terebellidae, Trichobranchidae and Sabellidae families collected along the Brazilian coast between the states of Sao Paulo and Paraíba, including identification keys and detailed descriptions with illustrative tables. Although they are abundant and conspicuous animals in different environments which t...
Terebellidae and Trichobranchidae are selective deposit-feedings, often inhabiting mucous tubes with agglutinated particles such as sand, stones and shell fragments. These animals are easily recognized by the presence of multiple grooved buccal tentacles, covering a wide area around the tube. On the other hand, Sabellidae live in tubes made of secreted mucous, and inhabit virtually all ...
