Journal Article
do Amaral Camara Lima, M., Ward, R. D., & Joyce, C. B. (in press). Carbon sequestration and geochronology in Southern England’s seagrass meadows. Carbon Footprints, 2(4), https://doi.org/10.20517/cf.2023.08

The aim of this study was to provide an evaluation of the current methods used to assess carbon sequestration (Cseq) rates from intertidal Zostera spp. meadows in central Southern England. This study evaluated the use of 210Pb dating methods to calcu... Read More about Carbon sequestration and geochronology in Southern England’s seagrass meadows.

A review of seagrass ecosystem services: providing nature-based solutions for a changing world (2023)
Journal Article
do Amaral Camara Lima, M., Bergamo, T. F., Bergamo, T., Ward, R. D., Ward, R., Joyce, C. B., & Joyce, C. (2023). A review of seagrass ecosystem services: providing nature-based solutions for a changing world. Hydrobiologia, 850(12-13), 2655-2670. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-023-05244-0

Seagrasses are marine flowering plants, which form extensive meadows in intertidal and shallow water marine environments. They provide a wide range of ecosystem services, which directly or indirectly benefit humans and can be grouped into four broad...

Carbon stocks in southern England's intertidal seagrass meadows (2022)
Journal Article
Do Amaral Camara Lima, M., Ward, R., Joyce, C., Kauer, K., & Sepp, K. (2022). Carbon stocks in southern England's intertidal seagrass meadows. Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, 275, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2022.107947

This study analyses total carbon stock (Cstocks) from the Isle of Wight, Solent, and adjacent harbours in southern England, including organic carbon (Corg) stored in the sediment and plant. Results from this study contribute to global blue carbon res... Read More about Carbon stocks in southern England's intertidal seagrass meadows.

Opportunities for seagrass research derived from remote sensing : a review of current methods (2020)
Journal Article
Veettil, B., Ward, R., Do Amaral Camara Lima, M., Stankovic, M., Hoai, P., & Quang, N. (2020). Opportunities for seagrass research derived from remote sensing : a review of current methods. Ecological Indicators, 117, 106560. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolind.2020.106560

Seagrass communities provide critical ecosystem and provisioning services for both human populations and a wide range of associated species globally. However, it has been reported that seagrass area is decreasing at a rapid rate in many parts of the...

Environmental drivers of sediment carbon storage in temperate seagrass meadows (2019)
Journal Article
Do Amaral Camara Lima, M., Ward, R., & Joyce, C. (2020). Environmental drivers of sediment carbon storage in temperate seagrass meadows. Hydrobiologia, 847, 1773-1792. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-019-04153-5

Seagrass meadows are productive ecosystems that contribute to climate change mitigation by accumulating ‘Blue Carbon’ in their plant biomass and sediments. However, there is wide variation in reported sediment carbon stocks (Cstocks) across different... Read More about Environmental drivers of sediment carbon storage in temperate seagrass meadows.

Feeding strategies and energy to protein ratio on tambaqui performance and physiology (2013)
Journal Article
de Carvalho Santos, M., Do Amaral Camara Lima, M., dos Santos, L., Pereira-Filho, M., Ono, E., & Affonso, E. (2013).

Impresso), 48(8), 955-961. https://doi.org/10.1590/S0100-204X2013000800021

The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of feed deprivation and refeeding with diets containing different energy to protein ratios (E/P) on the performance and physiology of juvenile tambaqui (Colossoma macropomum). A 4x2 factorial arra... Read More about Feeding strategies and energy to protein ratio on tambaqui performance and physiology.

Physiological response and performance of tambaqui fed with diets supplemented with Amazonian nut (2010)
Journal Article
de Carvalho Santos, M., Oishi, C., Filho, M., Do Amaral Camara Lima, M., Ono, E., & Affonso, E. (2010). Physiological response and performance of tambaqui fed with diets supplemented with Amazonian nut. Ciência rural (Impresso), 40(10), 2181-2185. https://doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782010001000021

The present study evaluated the effectiveness of Amazonian nut (Bertholletia excelsa) as an alternative source of vegetal protein in tambaqui (Colossoma macropomum) diet. Performance and physiological status of fish fed for 60 days were evaluated. Fo... Read More about Physiological response and performance of tambaqui fed with diets supplemented with Amazonian nut.
