Marine Biodiversity in the Caribbean: Regional Estimates and Distribution Patterns
This paper provides an analysis of the distribution patterns of marine biodiversity and summarizes the major activities of the Census of Marine Life program in the Caribbean region. The coastalExpand
Viability of Ascaris and other helminth genera non larval eggs in different conditions of temperature, lime (pH) and humidity.
Helminth eggs are the pathogens most resistant to inactivation during sludge and wastewater treatment. For this reason, in several regulations and the WHO guidelines for wastewater and excreta reuseExpand
The Caprellidea (Crustacea: Peracarida: Amphipoda) from the Gulf of Mexico with a description of a new species of Paracaprella
A new species of caprellid amphipod of the genus Paracaprella is described and illustrated in detail. All the material reported was collected from coral rubble samples from the Arrecife Tuxpan/LobosExpand
Assessment of biodiversity in Chilean cattle using the distribution of major histocompatibility complex class II BoLA-DRB3 allele.
Bovine leukocyte antigens (BoLAs) are used extensively as markers for bovine disease and immunological traits. In this study, we estimated BoLA-DRB3 allele frequencies using 888 cattle from 10Expand
Regional diversity of amphipoda in the Caribbean Sea.
The order Amphipoda is one of the most diverse within Peracarids, and comprises 6950 described marine species. Amphipod research in the Caribbean Sea began in the late 1800s, but has increasedExpand
A new species of commensal amphipod (Amphipoda: Gammaridea: Leucothoidae) from Veracruz Coral Reef System, SW Gulf of Mexico
A new species of commensal amphipod of the genus Leucothoe (Leucothoidae) is described from the Veracruz coral reef system, Veracruz, in the SW Gulf of Mexico. The specimens were collected from theExpand
Peracarid crustaceans from three inlets in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico: new records and range extensions
Four new Gulf of Mexico records and nine geographic range extensions of peracarid crustaceans within the Gulf are presented for the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. The new records were obtained fromExpand
A new deep-water species of Trischizostoma (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Gammaridea: Trischizostomatidae) from western Mexico, NE Pacific Ocean
A new species of Trischizostoma collected at depths of 1392–1420 m from western Mexico is described. It represents the first record of the genus in the NE Pacific. The new species is morphologicallyExpand
Large-Scale Spatial Distribution Patterns of Gastropod Assemblages in Rocky Shores
Gastropod assemblages from nearshore rocky habitats were studied over large spatial scales to (1) describe broad-scale patterns in assemblage composition, including patterns by feeding modes, (2)Expand
