The objective of Oceanological and Hydrobiological Studies, an international journal published by the University of Gdańsk in cooperation with the Academic Publishing Company Walter DeGruyter, is to provide the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on the current knowledge in the fields of science related to both oceanology and hydrobiology. The main emphasis is on publishing high quality articles, easily available to scientists from all over the world. As an editorial team, we are convinced that Oceanological and Hydrobiological Studies will continue to grow as a journal meant for scientists and researchers who wish to keep abreast of the latest developments in these fields of science.
Potential effects of electrical energy transmission – the case study from the Polish Marine Areas (southern Baltic Sea)
The operation of offshore wind turbines and electricity transmission through submarine cables over long distances generate electromagnetic or static magnetic fields (depending on the technical solution) that may modify the natural geomagnetic field and cause
Mollusk fauna associated with Cystoseira barbata (Stockhouse) C. Agardh, 1820 in the Sea of Marmara (Turkey)
Mollusk species associated with Cystoseira barbata were examined in the Sea of Marmara in 2012 at 14 sampling sites with a depth ranging from 0.2 to 0.5 m. A total of 18 468 specimens belonging to
Chamaepinnularia thermophila (Bacillariophyceae): synonymy with Navicula tongatensis Hustedt and update of its geographic distribution and ecology
Chamaepinnularia thermophila is a small and poorly known diatom species. After the first description from a hot spring in Guadalupe in 1952, its presence appeared to be limited to a few other springs of the
Microphytobenthos as an indicator of water quality and organic pollution in the western coastal zone of the Sea of Azov
Bioindication of organic pollution and seawater quality was carried out for the first time in the western part of the Sea of Azov on the basis of species composition and quantitative characteristics of microphytobenthos. A
The hydroxyproline content in Crangon crangon tissues from the Gulf of Gdańsk (southern Baltic) was determined in males, non-ovigerous females and ovigerous females, depending on the individual body length, the study area (two profiles: Gdynia
Evaluation of claws as an alternative route of mercury elimination from the herring gull (Larus argentatus)
Mercury enters the body of seabirds in its most toxic organic form, i.e. methylmercury, mainly via the alimentary tract. Inside the body, mercury is transformed into less toxic forms and accumulates in the internal organs.
The family of Bacillariaceae Ehrenberg is a group of well-known raphid diatoms, associated with water quality. Our current knowledge of the species diversity of this group in Turkey is still incomplete. There are three river
New and interesting Luticola species (Bacillariophyta) from the mangroves of Nosy Be Island, NW Madagascar
Madagascar is an isolated island characterized by a high degree of endemism at all taxonomic levels. Diatom assemblages of the region are still poorly known and sporadic sampling events in various habitats (e.g. lagoons, mangroves)
