Philippine Journal of Science, 1995 - Science and Technology Information InstituteDessication, thermal shock, ultraviolet-irradiated seawater, and hydrogen peroxide, singly or in combination, failed to induce the tropical abalone, Haliotis asinina to spawn viable number of eggs or sperm. However, natural spontaneous spawnings occurred frequently and fertilized eggs with an average size of 180 µm were obtained. Trochophore larvae hatched 5.2-5.6 h after fertilization (27.7-30.2°C). Veliger larvae were observed 8 h after fertilization and achieved creeping ability 30 h after fertilization. Competent larvae settled within 2-3 d on prepared diatom plates and juveniles forming the first respiratory pore were observed after 30 d.

Wetlands Ecology and Management, 2010 - SpringerPractical mapping methods employing GPS field surveys and manual image analyses with affordable software were used to assess two mangrove sites in Aklan Province, NE Panay Island, central Philippines. The Jawili mangroves, absent from current maps, actually included 21.5 ha with 24 true mangrove species. On the other hand, the Batan Estuary mangroves, shown to be 4244 ha in available topographic maps, revealed only 406 ha of scattered patches. Actual mangrove data on specific areas worldwide is limited, especially in the Philippines where available maps show discrepancies from actual mangrove distribution. Remote sensing (RS) techniques provide promising results but require expensive setup, particularly for small areas. Therefore, financially limited users need affordable and rapid mapping alternatives. The practical techniques presented here can be immediately implemented at minimal cost and can produce useful estimates of actual mangrove area, fundamental for coastal management. Basic principles used here also have potential applications in other systems and locations. When resources are available though, additional confirmation and precise mapping are also further recommended.
