    • Coastal Environments 

      Simionato, Claudia G.; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Martínez, Rodney (WCRP Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean: Developing, linking, and applying climate knowledge (WRCP-LAC), 2014-09-08)
      It is presented in this document the summary community-based position paper on "Coastal environments", on the outcomes of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean, Developing, ...
    • Ecological assessments of the coral reef communities in the Eastern Caribbean and the effects of herbivory in influencing coral juvenile density and algal cover 

      Williams, Stacey M.; Sánchez Godínez, Cristina; Newman, Steven P.; Cortés Núñez, Jorge (2017)
      Caribbean reefs have been unevenly surveyed, with many areas lacking baseline data. In this study, the current status of Orbicella reefs, a structurally complex forereef habitat, was quantified in an understudied region, ...
    • Evaluation of Extreme Waves Associated with Cyclonic Activity on San Andrés Island in the Caribbean Sea since 1900 

      Ortiz Royero, Juan Carlos; Plazas Moreno, José Manuel; Lizano Rodríguez, Omar G. (2015)
      San Andrés Island is one of the most important tourist destinations in the Caribbean Sea. The extreme waves associated with storms and hurricanes since 1900 were studied. A total of 17 important events was identified in ...
    • Hierarchical spatial patterns in Caribbean reef benthic assemblages 

      Williams, Stacey M.; Chollett, Iliana; Roff, George; Cortés Núñez, Jorge; Dryden, Charlie S.; Mumby, Peter J. (2015)
      Aim: Coral assemblages on Caribbean reefs have largely been considered to be biogeographically homogeneous at a regional scale. We reassess this in three taxa (corals, sponges and octocorals) using three community attributes ...
    • Importance of differentiating Orbicella reefs from gorgonian plains for ecological assessments of Caribbean reefs 

      Williams, Stacey M.; Mumby, Peter J.; Chollett, Iliana; Cortés Núñez, Jorge (2015)
      Region-wide assessments of coral cover typically rely on meta-analyses of small-scale ecological studies which have combined different coral reef habitats. This is particularly problematic on forereefs where at least 2 ...
    • Widespread local chronic stressors in Caribbean coastal habitats 

      Chollett, Iliana; Collin, Rachel; Bastidas, Carolina; Cróquer, Aldo; Gayle, Peter M. H.; Jordán Dahlgren, Eric; Patterson, Heather M.; Koltes, Karen H.; Oxenford, Hazel A.; Rodríguez Ramírez, Alberto; Weil, Ernesto; Alemu I., Jahson B.; Bone, David; Buchan, Kenneth C.; Creary Ford, Marcia; Escalante Mancera, Edgar; Garzón Ferreira, Jaime; Guzmán Espinal, Héctor M.; Kjerfve, Björn; Klein Salas, Eduardo; McCoy, Croy; Potts, Arthur C.; Ruíz Rentería, Francisco; Smith, Struan R.; Tschirky, John J.; Cortés Núñez, Jorge (2017)
      Coastal ecosystems and the livelihoods they support are threatened by stressors acting at global and local scales. Here we used the data produced by the Caribbean Coastal Marine Productivity program (CARICOMP), the longest, ...
