    • Macrobenthos in the central Arabian Gulf: a reflection of climate extremes and variability 

      Wei, Chih-Lin; Rowe, Gilbert T.; Al-Ansi, Mohsin; Al-Maslamani, Ibrahim; Soliman, Yousria; ... more authors ( Springer International Publishing , 2016 , Article)
      The arid subtropical ecosystem of the central Arabian Gulf was used to explore the combined effects of low primary productivity, high salinities, and variable temperatures on the composition and structure of benthic ...
    • Short-term behavioural responses to thermal stress by hawksbill turtles in the Arabian region 

      Pilcher, Nicolas J.; Perry, Lisa; Antonopoulou, Marina; Abdel-Moati, Mohamed A.; Al Abdessalaam, Thabit Zahran; ... more authors ( Elsevier , 2014 , Article)
      We present a previously unrecorded short-term behavioural response by hawksbill sea turtles to elevated sea surface temperatures in the Persian/Arabian Gulf. Surface waters typically exceed 30°C for sustained periods during ...
