San Andrés Island is one of the most important tourist destinations in the Caribbean Sea. The extreme waves associated with storms and hurricanes since 1900 were studied. A total of 17 important events was identified in ...
Global Human Footprint on the Linkage between Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning in Reef Fishes
Difficulties in scaling up theoretical and experimental results have raised controversy over the consequences of biodiversity loss for the functioning of natural ecosystems. Using a global survey of reef fish assemblages, ...
Seagrass morphometrics at species level in Moreton Bay, Australia from 2012 to 2013
Seagrass above, below and total biomass, density and leaf area, length and width were quantified at a species level for 122 sites over three sampling periods in Moreton Bay, Australia. Core samples were collected in two ...

Hierarchical spatial patterns in Caribbean reef benthic assemblages
Aim: Coral assemblages on Caribbean reefs have largely been considered to be biogeographically homogeneous at a regional scale. We reassess this in three taxa (corals, sponges and octocorals) using three community attributes ...
