Las especies que contribuyeron significativamente al ensamblaje del grupo A y exclusivas de este grupo fueron: los moluscos Crucibulum spinosum, Glycymeris maculata, Modiolus rectus y el equinodermo Ophiura luetkenii; mientras que para el grupo B fueron el equinodermo Dendraster excentricus, el artropodo Neomysis sp.
This study reflects the significant higher density of sessile taxa (Porifera and the ascidean Paramolguta gregaria) and two small ophiuroids (Ophiacantha vivipara and Ophiura lymani), all of them conspicuous during the exploratory cruises conducted in 1995, in the sites where fishing effort was interrupted 4 y before the sampling in 2007 than in those sites continuously exploited and discusses the results considering previous knowledge on the damage that the process on board scallopers imparts on invertebrates bycatch.
In the two other investigated species (the temperate Ophiura ophiura and the Arctic Ophiocten sericeum), arm regeneration rate was significantly reduced by acidification at pH [less than or equal to] 7.
