The deepwater fishery along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Central America
(Lat. Am. J. Aquat. Res., 37(3): 543-554, 2009, 2009)
Global catches of marine fishery resources declined during the last decades; however, there has been a trend of increasing exploitation of deepwater resources that are especially vulnerable to depletion. Such a tendency ...
The early rainy season in Central America: the role of thetropical North Atlantic SSTs
We explored the relationship between the precipitation anomalies during May to June as the first peak of the rainy season in the Pacific slope of Central America, and sea surface temperature (SST) fluctuations in the ...
Metals in coastal mollusks of Costa Rica
Metales en moluscos costeros de Costa Rica
The input of contaminants to coastal ecosystems is a global problem on the rise. Data on metal pollution from tropical sites is often lacking and pilot surveys are urgently needed to provide a general framework to estimate ...
Distribución espacial de impactos de eventos hidrometeorológicos en América Central
América Central está expuesta a la ocurrencia de eventos hidrometeorológicos a lo largo del año y los impactos que estos pueden provocar van a estar mayormente localizados en áreas donde las variables tanto naturales como ...
A test of color-based taxonomy in nudibranchs: Molecular phylogeny and species delimitation of the Felimida clenchi (Mollusca: Chromodorididae) species complex
Traditionally, species identification in nudibranch gastropods relies heavily on body color pattern. The Felimida clenchi species complex, a group of brightly colored Atlantic and Mediterranean species in the family ...
Chloroplast genomes as a tool to resolve red algal phylogenies: a case study in the Nemaliales
Obtaining strongly supported phylogenies that permit confident taxonomic and evolutionary interpretations has been a challenge in algal biology. High-throughput sequencing has improved the capacity to generate data and ...
Relationship between isoprene emission and photosynthesis in diatoms, and its implications for global marine isoprene estimates
Global consensus estimates of marine isoprene emission (~ 1 TgC yr− 1) is significantly smaller than terrestrial isoprene emission (~ 500 TgC yr− 1), and the reasons are unclear. With the premise that isoprene emission is ...
Brachiopods, sipunculans, enteropneusts and metals from two estuarine tidal flats, Pacific, Costa Rica
Braquiópodos, sipuncúlidos, enteropneustos y metales en dos planicies estuarinas de marea, Pacífico, Costa Rica.
Reports on the abundances and on metal concentrations in intertidal estuarine invertebrates from the Eastern Tropical Pacific are rare. Thus, the objectives of this report are to make accessible data on the abundances ...
Assessment of Central America Regional Climate Outlook Forum maps, 1998-2013
Starting 1997, the Regional Climate Outlook Forums or RCOFs have taken place in different Latin American countries, as an effort to generate climatic prediction products. “since 2000, the Forum is organized in Central ...
One year weekly dynamics of limnological conditions and phytoplankton in Lake Bonilla, Costa Rica
The detailed response of tropical lake phytoplankton to weather variations has been little studied, but it seems that composition varies in response to rain and wind variability over the course of the year. In order to ...
