Patterns of Mercury Accumulation in Tissues of Western Sandpipers (Calidris mauri ) Wintering on the Coast of Sinaloa, Mexico
Abstract. Mercury concentration was quantified in liver, muscle, and primary feathers of pooled samples of Western Sandpiper (Calidris mauri) collected in December-January 2010 (wintering) andExpand
Mercury bioaccumulation patterns in deep-sea fishes as indicators of pollution scenarios in the northern Pacific of Mexico
The results indicate a clear differentiation of the mercury bioaccumulation patterns between GC and BC, where GC species had consistently higher liver/muscle concentration ratios than those from BC (600–1100 m), possible evidence of differential scenarios of environmental contamination. Expand
Distribution of the deep-sea genus Bathypterois (Pisces: Ipnopidae) in the Eastern Central Pacific.
This study confirms that both species have a continuous distribution within the ECP, and new records extended the known northernmost range for B. atricolor and B. ventralis along the West coast of Baja California. Expand
Reproductive ecology of the witch guitarfish Zapteryx xyster Jordan & Evermann, 1896 (Chondrichtyes: Trygonorrhinidae) in the Gulf of Tehuantepec, Mexican Pacific
The data indicated that adults migrated towards shallow waters (25–37m) to reproduce, starting in February, and there was sexual dichromatism between males and females during the breeding period, and sexual polymorphism in adult females. Expand
Distribution of Dibranchus species (Pisces: Ogcocephalidae) from the Eastern Central Pacific and their relationship with environmental factors
The geographic and bathymetric distribution of the genus Dibranchus throughout the Eastern Central Pacific was analyzed, using historical distribution records and results from bottom trawlsExpand
New eastern Pacific Ocean record of the rare deep-water fish, Psychrolutes phrictus (Scorpaeniformes: Psychrolutidae)
A combination of traits and species distribution allow us to identity this specimen as P. phrictus, a benthic deep sea fish known from the eastern North Pacific that has never been reported off the Mexican Pacific coast; this new record extends the known southern most range by 1,733 km. Expand

Distribution of grenadiers (Pisces: Macrouridae) in the continental slope of the tropical Eastern Pacific off Mexico
Abstract Grenadiers (Macrouridae) comprise one of the most diverse deep-sea fish families, however, knowledge about their distribution in the north-central part of the Eastern Tropical Pacific (ETP)Expand
Bioaccumulation of organochlorine pesticides in the Western Sandpiper (Calidris mauri) during the wintering season in Sinaloa, Mexico
Evidence of OCP bioaccumulation in the Western Sandpiper during the wintering period was showed, which may be related to hyperphagia during the premigration period and to the differential intake of O CP types and quantities between sites due to differences in their availability. Expand
