Hydrogeochemical and biological characteristics of cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula (SE Mexico)
Cenotes (sinkholes) are the most peculiar aquatic ecosystem of the Yucatan Peninsula (SE Mexico). They are formed by dissolution of the carbonate rock in the karstic platform of the YucatanExpand
Diversity of the Monstrilloida (Crustacea: Copepoda)
An analysis of the world distribution of published records of the Monstrilloida revealed that the Northeast Atlantic is the best studied region (45% of all records), followed by the Northwestern Atlantic (17%) and the least surveyed areas include regions of the southern hemisphere (less than 3%). Expand
Historical biogeography and distribution of the freshwater calanoid copepods (Crustacea: Copepoda) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
It is not probable that the South American diaptomid fauna originated from an invasion of upper Neotropical/Nearctic forms, and the current distribution of Diaptomidae and Pseudodiaptomsidae mainly reflects recent, post-Pliocene colonization events. Expand
The Introduced Asian Parasitic Copepod Neoergasilus japonicus (Harada) (Cyclopoida: Ergasilidae) from Endangered Cichlid Teleosts in Mexico
It is a matter of concern that this copepod is parasitizing endangered or threatened endemic cichlids in the Neotropical region because its high infective efficiency and ability to shift hosts, this Asian parasite is expected to spread farther southwards into Central and South America. Expand
Taxonomic report on some monstrilloids (Copepoda, Monstrilloida) from Toulon Bay, France
During a zoopl ankton survey carried out off the coasts of the bay of Toul on, France, several monstrilloid copepods were collected. The systematic analys is of thi s group allowed the identiExpand
The Australian Monstrilloida (Crustacea: Copepoda) I. Monstrillopsis Sars, Maemonstrilla Grygier & Ohtsuka, and Australomonstrillopsis gen. nov.
Four new species of Maemonstrilla from Australia can be distinguished from its known congeners by a unique combination of characters including the type of body reticulation, body size, antennule and body proportions, distinctive characters of the swimming legs, details of the antennular armature, and the presence/absence of a posteroventral process on the genital compound somite.

Larval fish assemblages in waters off the central Pacific coast of Mexico
Spatial and seasonal variation of the ichthyoplankton assemblages was analysed using monthly samples collected during a 1 year cycle off the central Pacific coast of Mexico. Zooplankton samples wereExpand
Two New Species of Monstrillopsis Sars (Crustacea: Copepoda: Monstrilloida) from the White Sea and Norway, with Comments on M. dubia Scott
A new species of monstrilloid copepod, Monstrillopsis ferrarii n. sp., based on four adult female specimens collected in the White Sea, northern Russia, is described and illustrated. The new speciesExpand
Copepod Assemblages From a Reef-Related Environment in the Mexican Caribbean Sea
The general behaviour of the local copepod community seems to be quite homogeneous when compared with other reef systems, which could be related to the circulation pattern in the area, which favours a continuous, strong oceanic influence along the reef. Expand
A checklist of the Medusae (Hydrozoa, Scyphozoa and Cubozoa) of Mexico
The number of species will grow as surveys that include the hydroid stages and their laboratory-released medusae, as well as benthic and deep-living medusofauna are undertaken in both the Atlantic and the Pacific coasts of Mexico. Expand
