Distribution and abundance of the rocky bottom ascidians of Cuajiniquil Bay, Costa Rica.�TheascidiansoftheCentral-AmericanPacificcoastarepoorlystudied,�althoughthisgroupis� one of the most important members of the benthic fauna of this region. The present study shows data of density (individuals per square meter) of the solitary ascidians Rhopalaea birkelandi (Tokioka) and Ascidia ceratodes (Huntsman), at 5, 10 and 15 m deep in three transects perpendicular to the coast. These transects were… 
Ascidian diversity of Costa Rica, including new records for the North Pacific
Introduction: The class Ascidiacea has about 3 000 species, which fulfill various roles in the ecosystem, for example, they filter high amounts of particles, and are shelter and food for other
Ascidia ceratodes (Huntsman, 1912) (Tunicata: Ascidiidae) off the northern Chilean coast: new record
TLDR
This finding verified a questionable record established by Van Name (1945) from Tocopilla (22oS), northern Chile and extends the confirmed geographical distribution of A. ceratodes along of the eastern Pacific coast from British Columbia, Canada, to northern Chile.
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

Isla del Coco (also known as Cocos Island) is an oceanic island in the Eastern Tropical Pacific; it is part of the largest national park of Costa Rica and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island has
Marine biodiversity baseline for Área de Conservación Guanacaste, Costa Rica: published records
TLDR
The BioMar project, collaborating with ACG and a private foundation to start an inventory of the marine organisms of the conservation area, could become a viable model for marine biodiversity inventories in other Costa Rican Conservation Areas and in other countries.
Habitat Use and Diet of Juvenile Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) in the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica
TLDR
To protect juvenile hawksbills in the study area, it is recommended that this site be granted official protection status as part of the Caletas–Arío National Wildlife Refuge.

Persistence and differential distribution of nonindigenous ascidians in harbors of the Southern California Bight
The Southern California Bight covers a region of about 300 km of coastline from northern Baja California to Point Conception. The present study includes ascidian species abundance data from 1994 to
RESISTANCE OF A TUNICATE TO FOULING
TLDR
Ascidia nigra is free of epibionts, although many other ascidians are susceptible to epizooic recruitment, and both the vanadium-rich surface deposit and the acid-filled capsules are believed to be formed by degenerating vanadocytes in the test.
Non-indigenous ascidians in southern California harbors and marinas
TLDR
The relative abundance and seasonal fluctuations of both non-indigenous and native ascidians in all harbors in southern California from San Diego to Santa Barbara are estimated based upon the historical record, 35 yr of field notes, and the recent surveys.
Relationships Between Chemical Defense and Ecology in Benthic Ascidians
TLDR
Findings are discussed in reference to previous experimental work, which has shown that high vanadium contents and acidity are involved in chemical defense in ascidians, and in relation to the role of chemical defenses in sessile, epibenthic, marine invertebrates.

TLDR
The undamaged test of a range of aplousobranch ascidian species is shown to be chemically neutral, and neither the capacity to produce acid nor the presence of vanadium prevents predation on ascidian Species in the field.
