Indicator-based management recommendations for an artisanal bottom-longline fishery in Costa Rica, Central America
Recomendaciones de manejo basadas en indicadores para la pesca artesanal con líneas de fondo en Costa Rica, Centroamérica
There is a growing need to strengthen the small-scale fishing sector with emerging governance methods that improve fishers’ threatened livelihoods. Therefore, this study’s aim was to develop management ...
In the Eastern Pacific (EP) the only region where rhodolith beds have been well studied in terms of taxonomy, ecology, distribution and conservation status is the Gulf of California. Outside this region the knowledge of ...
Polychaetes associated with decaying wood in Térraba mangrove, South Pacific, Costa Rica
Poliquetos asociados a madera en descomposición en el manglar de Térraba, Pacífico Sur, Costa Rica
The present study shows spatial patterns in the faunal assemblage of decaying wood and sediments, with emphasis on the polychaetes. The survey was executed across a salinity gradient in a tropical mangrove estuary of Costa ...
Evaluation of Extreme Waves Associated with Cyclonic Activity on San Andrés Island in the Caribbean Sea since 1900
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 ...
A revision of the genus Muricea Lamouroux, 1821 (Anthozoa, Octocorallia) in the eastern Pacific. Part I: Eumuricea Verrill, 1869 revisited
Muricea is an amphi-American genus. Verrill proposed dividing the species from the Pacific Ocean into three genera and established the genus Eumuricea for five eastern Pacific species with tubular calyces. Eumuricea is ...

Reef flattening effects on total richness and species responses in the Caribbean
1. There has been ongoing flattening of Caribbean coral reefs with the loss of habitat having severe implications for these systems. Complexity and its structural components are important to fish species richness and ...
Importance of differentiating Orbicella reefs from gorgonian plains for ecological assessments of Caribbean reefs
Region-wide assessments of coral cover typically rely on meta-analyses of small-scale ecological studies which have combined different coral reef habitats. This is particularly problematic on forereefs where at least 2 ...
