New record of Stellamedusa ventana Raskoff & Matsumoto, 2004 in the Eastern Tropical Pacific
Three specimens of the rare scyphozoan Stellamedusa ventana Raskoff & Matsumoto, 2004 were collected during a vertical plankton tow on April 2013 in a shallow bay on the Eastern Tropical Pacific that was sampled eight times ...
New record of the starfish Ophidiaster ludwigi (Echinodermata: Asteroidea) from the Paciﬁc of Mexico and Costa Rica
Ophidiaster ludwigi had been reported only from Panama and Peru. Here we add record of the genus and species for Mexico and Costa Rica; and, first time its bathymetric distribution (0-156 m)
Simulated overfishing and natural eutrophication promote the relative success of a non-indigenous ascidian in coral reefs at the Pacific coast of Costa Rica
Colonial ascidians of the genus Didemnum are common fouling organisms and are typically associated with degraded ecosystems and anthropogenic structures installed in the sea. In this study, however, the non-indigenous ...
Vertical accretion and carbon burial rates in subtropical seagrass meadows increased following anthropogenic pressure from European colonisation
Seagrass meadows serve as marine carbon sinks, though rates of carbon burial and sediment accretion may vary within and among seagrass meadows due to spatial and temporal variability in sedimentary and biophysical conditions. ...
Does Estuary Restoration Design Alter the Fine Scale Movements of Gray Smoothhounds (Mustelus californicus) in Southern California?
Restored estuaries in southern California are limited in size and shape by fragmentation from human development, which can in turn restrict habitat use. Thus, it is important to assess how habitat design affects how fish ...
Seasonal phenology of Sargassum liebmannii J. Agardh (Fucales, Heterokontophyta) in an upwelling area of the Eastern Tropical Pacific
Seasonal changes in growth, biomass, abundance and reproduction of brown algae have been reported from subtropical and temperate regions, but there are very few reports from tropical regions, and none from the Eastern ...
