SUMMARY Corallicolous crabs have been known from the eastern tropical Pacific since the middle of the nineteenth Century. Described originally as new species, they have increasingly been found identical with Indo-west Pacific species; in fact, with few exceptions, corallicolous crabs and shrimps are the only decapod crustacean species common to both western and eastern Pacific oceans. Host specificity is believed to account best for the presence or absence of Indo-west Pacific crab genera or… 
Corallivory in the Eastern Pacific
TLDR
The far-reaching implications of the corallivore feeding strategy are explored, touching on the connections that ultimately link coral biomass with higher trophic levels and the rest of the reef ecosystem.
A new record of the indo-Pacific Whitespotted surgeonfish, Acanthurus guttatus, in the eastern tropical Pacific (Isla del Coco, Costa Rica)
BackgroundAcanthurus guttatus is distributed from the Maldives to the Hawaiian Archipelago and the Pitcairn Islands, and as north as Ryukyu Islands and as south as New Caledonia. The only known
Indo-Pacific echinoids in the tropical eastern Pacific
TLDR
Though none of the Indo-Pacific species are known to have reached the coast of the American mainland, their presence at the offshore islands of the eastern Pacific suggests that, for some echinoids, the East Pacific Barrier is not as formidable an obstacle to migration as was previously thought.
Initial Evidence for the Transport of Teleplanic Larvae of Benthic Invertebrates Across the East Pacific Barrier
TLDR
Data from larval distributions suggest that the east tropical Pacific may act as a substantial impediment to many invertebrate forms, but that it is not a complete barrier to dispersal.

Tropical Transpacific Shore Fishes
TLDR
There is little clear evidence of strongly increased migration across the EPB during El Niños, including recent extreme events (1982--1983 and 1997--1998), but there is a strong bias toward eastward migration among the transpacific shore fishes, there likely is much more westward migration than previously realized.

Shallow water crabs from the Western Indian Ocean:Portunoidea and Xanthoidea excluding Pilumnidae(Crustacea Decapoda Brachyura)
TLDR
The geographical range of 17 portunid and xanthoid species is substantially extended, one species, Charybdis hawaiensis Edmondson 1954 was previously known only from the Pacific and is recorded for the first time from the Indian Ocean.
Species Diversity of Decapods Associated with Living and Dead Reef Coral Pocillopora meandrina

The decapod communities associated with live and dead specimens of the reef coral Pocillopora meandrina Dana in Hawaii were investigated. Species composition of decapods shifted gradually from
Trophodynamics of Eastern Pacific Coral Reefs
Trophic interactions on eastern Pacific coral reefs are complex and highly dynamic, ever changing due to numerous biological and physical factors. In this chapter, we first address the sources of
