    • Seasonal changes of the microplankton community along a tropical estuary 

      Seguro Requejo, Isabel; García Jiménez, Carlos Manuel; Papaspyrou, Sokratis; Gálvez Lorente, José Ángel; García Robledo, Emilio Guillermo; Navarro Almendros, Gabriel; Soria Píriz, Sara; Aguilar, Virgina; Lizano Rodríguez, Omar G.; Morales Ramírez, Álvaro; Corzo Rodríguez, Alfonso (2015-11)
      Microplankton organisms are an important link in the transfer of matter and energy between the benthic–pelagic microbial food web and higher trophic levels in estuaries. Although tropical estuaries are among the most ...
    • Systematics and biogeography of Pleurobranchus Cuvier, 1804, sea slugs (Heterobranchia: Nudipleura: Pleurobranchidae) 

      Goodheart, Jessica A.; Camacho García, Yolanda E.; Padula, Vinicius; Schrödl, Michael; Cervera Currado, Juan Lucas; Gosliner, Terrence M.; Valdés Gallego, Ángel (2015)
      Species of Pleurobranchus (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Heterobranchia: Nudipleura: Pleurobranchidae) are commonly found worldwide, but there is a substantial amount of confusion regarding the ranges and identification of individual ...
    • Upwelling Increases Net Primary Production of Corals and Reef-Wide Gross Primary Production Along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica 

      Stuhldreier, Ines; Sánchez Noguera, Celeste; Roth, Florian; Cortés Núñez, Jorge; Rixen, Tim; Wild, Christian (2015-12-23)
      Photosynthetic production is a key ecosystem service provided by tropical coral reefs, but knowledge about the contribution of corals and other reef-associated organisms and the controlling environmental factors is scarce. ...
    • Using eDNA to determine the source of organic carbon in seagrass meadows 

      Reef, Ruth; Atwood, Trisha B.; Samper Villarreal, Jimena; Adame, Maria Fernanda; Sampayo, Eugenia M.; Lovelock, Catherine E. (2017)
      Seagrasses sequester globally significant amounts of carbon (C), which is stored mainly in the sediment. BothC fixation by the seagrass (autochthonous) and the trapping of organic matter that is derived from outside ...
    • Variability of the Caribbean low-level jet during borealwinter: large-scale forcings 

      Maldonado Mora, Tito José; Rutgersson, Anna; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Claremar, Björn (2016)
      An index capturing the anomalies of the zonal wind at 925 hPa from 1950 to 2010 was defined to explore the relationship between the fluctuations of the Caribbean low-level jet (CLLJ) and the main climate variability modes ...
    • Widespread local chronic stressors in Caribbean coastal habitats 

      Chollett, Iliana; Collin, Rachel; Bastidas, Carolina; Cróquer, Aldo; Gayle, Peter M. H.; Jordán Dahlgren, Eric; Patterson, Heather M.; Koltes, Karen H.; Oxenford, Hazel A.; Rodríguez Ramírez, Alberto; Weil, Ernesto; Alemu I., Jahson B.; Bone, David; Buchan, Kenneth C.; Creary Ford, Marcia; Escalante Mancera, Edgar; Garzón Ferreira, Jaime; Guzmán Espinal, Héctor M.; Kjerfve, Björn; Klein Salas, Eduardo; McCoy, Croy; Potts, Arthur C.; Ruíz Rentería, Francisco; Smith, Struan R.; Tschirky, John J.; Cortés Núñez, Jorge (2017)
      Coastal ecosystems and the livelihoods they support are threatened by stressors acting at global and local scales. Here we used the data produced by the Caribbean Coastal Marine Productivity program (CARICOMP), the longest, ...
