Changes in abundance and composition of a Caribbean coral reef zooplankton community after 25 years
Cambios en abundancia y composición de una comunidad de zooplancton arrecifal en el Caribe 25 años después
Coral reef zooplankton represents a key community in coral ecosystems, as they are involved in trophic and biogeochemical dynamics, and recruitment processes. Zooplankton abundance, composition and biomass were surveyed ...
Euphausiids (Crustacea: Euphausiacea) from a hotspot of marine biodiversity, Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, Eastern Tropical Pacific
Eufáusidos (Crustacea: Euphausiacea) de un punto caliente de biodiversidad marina, Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, Pacífico Tropical Oriental
Euphausiids have been well studied in several regions of the Pacific Ocean; however, there is less information regarding euphausiids in Costa Rican waters. We analyzed euphausiid specimens collected around Isla del Coco ...
Seasonal changes of the microplankton community along a tropical estuary
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 ...
Effects of Seasonal Upwelling on Inorganic and Organic Matter Dynamics in the Water Column of Eastern Pacific Coral Reefs
The Gulf of Papagayo at the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica experiences pronounced seasonal changes in water parameters caused by wind-driven coastal upwelling. While remote sensing and open water sampling already ...
