Identification key for the ctenophores from Brazilian coast
Keywords:Ctenophora, comb-jelly, zooplankton, gelatinous plankton, pelagial, benthos, Brazil
AbstractAlthough ctenophores are abundant and ecologically important in the marine environment, they are poorly known in the Brazilian coast. The present study is a taxonomic key for the ctenophores from the Brazilian coast. It aims to help students and non-specialist researchers with the identification of those organisms. Collecting, preserving and photographing methods are described. Characters that distinguish the thirteen species registered in Brazilian marine territories are presented.
