Atmospheric forcing of cool subsurface water events in Bahía Culebra, Gulf of Papagayo, Costa Rica
(Revista Biología Tropical, 60 (2): 173-186, 2012-04)
Bahía Culebra, at Gulf of Papagayo on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica, is an area of seasonal upwelling where more intense cooling events may occur during some boreal winter weeks mainly. To study these extreme cool ...
By-catch associated with fisheries of Heterocarpus vicarius (Costa Rica) and Heterocarpus reedi (Chile) (Decapoda: Pandalidae): a six-year study (2004-2009)
(Journal of Crustacean Biology, 33(2), 198-209. 2013, 2013)
Growing concern about the quantity and diversity of by-catch species caught in the bottom trawling nets of crustacean fisheries led us to compare the quantity of by-catch recorded in Chilean and Costa Rican deep-water ...
Las ciencias del mar en la Revista de Biología Tropical en su 50 aniversario
(Rev. Biol. Trop. 50(3/4): 903-907, 2002, 2002)
El primer artículo sobre cualquier tema marino fue publicado en 1963 y desde entonces ha venido aumentando el número de publicaciones marinas hasta llegar a 637. Este número representa el 27% de todos los artículos ...
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 ...
Abundancia, biomasa y floración de Thalassia testudinum (Hydrocharitaceae) en el Caribe de Costa Rica
(Rev. Biol. Trop. (Int. J. Trop. Biol. ISSN-0034-7744) Vol. 56 (Suppl. 4): 175-189, December 2008, 2008-12)
Three Thalassia testudinumseagrass beds were studied at Cahuita National Park, from August 2003 to August 2006. Additionally, biomass samples of this species were collected at the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge, ...
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 ...
Variability of the Caribbean low-level jet during borealwinter: large-scale forcings
An index capturing the anomalies of the zonal wind at 925 hPa from 1950 to 2010 was defined to explore the relationship between the fluctuations of the Caribbean low-level jet (CLLJ) and the main climate variability modes ...
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 ...
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 ...
