Variation in the whole mitogenome of reef-building Porites corals
The study of complete mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) revealed different gene rearrangements, highly variable markers, and delineated clades that have aided the understanding of the evolutionary history in corals. In ...
Density, size, and biomass of Diadema mexicanum (Echinoidea) in Eastern Tropical Pacific coral reefs
Diadema is among the most abundant, widely dispersed, and ecologically important genera of sea urchin in tropical shallow waters. D. mexicanum is distributed from the Gulf of California to northern Peru, including the ...

Spatial and temporal changes in reef fish assemblages on disturbed coral reefs, north Pacific coast of Costa Rica
Benthic structure of coral reefs determines the availability of refuges and food sources. Therefore, structural changes caused by natural and anthropogenic disturbances can have negative impacts on reef‐associated communities. ...
Determinants of reef fish assemblages in tropical Oceanic islands
Diversity patterns are determined by biogeographic, energetic, and anthropogenic factors, yet few studies have combined them into a large‐scale framework in order to decouple and compare their relative effects on fish ...
