Rocas Atoll is the only one of its kind in the South Atlantic—and the first Brazilian marine biological reserve. This is the first report about the ascidians from Rocas. A total of 12 species were found, 5 of them not hitherto described: Ascidia viridina sp. nov., Didemnum rochai sp. nov., Leptoclinides crocotulus sp. nov., Polysyncraton maurizeliae sp. nov., and Trididemnum rocasensis sp. nov.). One Caribbean species, Didemnum halimedae, was also discovered in the region for the first time… 
Polysyncraton (Ascidiacea, Didemnidae): a re-examination of some specimens and descriptions of three new species
Polysyncraton Nott, 1892 is the second largest genus of didemnid ascidians; it has a wide distribution ranging from temperate to tropical waters. Seventy-one specimens of Polysyncraton from eight
Leptoclinides (Ascidiacea, Didemnidae) from Brazil: new records and two new species
TLDR
Two new species of Leptoclinides Bjerkan, 1905 collected along the Brazilian coast between 1998 and 2017 are described and extended the distribution of L. latus F. Monniot, 1983.
Ascidians (Tunicata) of the French Guiana Expedition.
TLDR
The ascidian diversity in Guiana is low with 36 species recorded, the result of the abundance of sediment suspended in the water and uniformly deposited on all substrates which affects filtration rate and limits the settling of the ascidian larvae.
Marine Bacteria from Rocas Atoll: A Promising Biotechnological Resource
TLDR
An original approach, molecular network successfully highlighted groups of compounds responsible for the cytotoxicity of crude extracts of Streptomyces BRB-298 andBRB-302, highlighting the pharmacological potential of bacteria from this singular Atoll.
Potencial anticâncer de bactérias associadas a ascídias, esponjas e sedimentos coletados no Atol das Rocas.
Rocas Atoll is a unique environment in the South Atlantic Ocean, hosting a large number of endemic species. Studies on the chemical diversity emerging from this biota are scanty, but it is expected a
Individual niche trajectories in nesting green turtles on Rocas Atoll, Brazil: an isotopic tool to assess diet shifts over time
Abstract In this study, multi-tissue (yolk and carapace) stable isotope analysis was used to assess individual isotopic niche trajectories of nesting green turtles on Rocas Atoll, off northeastern

Ascidiidae Herdman, 1882 (Tunicata: Ascidiacea) on the Pacific coast of Panama.
The ascidian fauna of the Pacific coast of Panama is poorly known and only recently four species in the family Ascidiidae were reported on. Ascidia is the only known genus of Ascidiidae in Pacific
Ascidians (Tunicata: Ascidiacea) from the northern and north-eastern Brazilian Shelf
TLDR
Benthic material from a series of surveys of the Brazilian Shelf contained 35 species of ascidian, of which 15 are positively and 4 doubtfully identified as known species, 11 are described as new species and 5 are identified only to the genus.
The family Ascidiidae Herdman (Tunicata: Ascidiacea) in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Description of six new species
TLDR
Six new species of Ascidians are described from this region of Panama, mostly in the mangroves but also in shallow coral reefs, where most of the species are very abundant on mangrove roots.

The Pelican Cays at the southern end of the Belize Barrier Reef, Central America, have a rich ascidian fauna. Seventy species in thirty genera, primarily from mangrove ponds and coral ridges, are
New species of Ascidian from the West Indies
TLDR
A number of new species have been discovered and it is proposed that Halocynthia microspinosa (Van Name, 1921) be reinstated.
TAXONOMIC AND ECOLOGICAL NOTES ON SOME DIDEMNUM SPECIES (ASCIDIACEA, DIDEMNIDAE) FROM SÃO SEBASTIÃO CHANNEL, SOUTH-EASTERN BRAZIL
Nine species collected in very shallow waters at the São Sebastião Channel (South-Eastem Brazil) were studied. Among the species collected, one is an endemic species, two have a geographical
Inventory of ascidians (Tunicata, Ascidiacea) from the National Park La Restinga, Isla Margarita, Venezuela
TLDR
The ascidian diversity in this lagoon is one of the highest for similar habitats in the Caribbean and seven species are new registers for Venezuela, and one point of concern for the conservation of la Restinga National Park is the presence of possible introduced species, and some management procedures are suggested.
Introduced ascidians in Paranaguá Bay, Paraná, southern Brazil
TLDR
S sampling ascidian species near the port of Paranagua for a taxonomic study of this fauna to attempt to detect introduced species suggests that three species are native, one is a inter-regional introduction, two are introduced from the Pacific and the remaining 12 are cryptogenic.
Ascídias (Tunicata, Ascidiacea) da Reserva Biológica Marinha do Arvoredo, Santa Catarina, Brasil
TLDR
The survey of ascidians was accomplished with scuba dive, only in shallow water (5-17 m deep), and twenty-six species are here registered, among which Lissoclinum perforatum (Giard, 1872), L. verrilli (Van Name, 1902) and Leptoclinides latus Monniot, 1983 represent new reports to Brazil.
