Article
Full-text available
Changes in life-history requirements drive trophic variations, particularly in large marine predators. The life history of many shark species is still poorly known and understanding their dietary ontogeny is a challenging task, especially for highly migratory species. Stable isotope analysis has proven as a useful method for examining the foraging...
Article
Full-text available
Coral reefs provide numerous ecosystem services and host more than 20% of marine biodiversity. However, the impact of recreational SCUBA diving on coral reefs is not often quantified in marine protected areas. We quantified the impact of divers on coral reefs in five sites within the National Park Reefs of Puerto Morelos, Mexico during high and low...
Article
Full-text available
The Bird's Head Seascape (BHS) in West Papua, Indonesia, is widely recognized as the global epicenter of coral reef biodiversity and is protected by an extensive network of 20 marine protected areas (MPAs) totaling over 4.7 million ha. It is home to large populations of both the reef manta ray Mobula alfredi (Krefft, 1868) and the oceanic manta Mob...
Article
Full-text available
The Galapagos Islands inspired the theory of evolution by means of natural selection; now in the Anthropocene, the Galapagos represent an important natural laboratory to understand ecosystem resilience in the face of climate extremes and enable effective socio-ecological co-evolution under climate change.
Article
Marine megafauna (elasmobranchs, marine mammals, turtles, and seabirds) are important ecologically and economically because many species often occupy upper trophic levels as adults and are essential for marine-based tourism in many areas of the world. This group of species is also heavily impacted by fishing because most have late sexual maturity,...

Full-text available
El “maestro raya” de Buscando a Nemo pertenece a una carismática especie del Caribe en situación vulnerable: las rayas águila (Aetobatus narinari). Como estrategia para conservarlas, se ha implementado un programa de monitoreo de ejemplares mediante la foto-identificación, con la colaboración de buzos y fotógrafos submarinos en la costa de Quintana...
Article
Full-text available
Skates are a diverse group within the chondrichthyans and comprise a large component of the bycatch in many demersal fisheries. The distribution of the Deepsea Skate, Bathyraja abyssicola, is presently known to be limited to the northern temperate Pacific Ocean. We filmed B. abyssicola from a remote operated vehicle during surveys undertaken on a s...
Article
Full-text available
The discovery of deep-sea hydrothermal vents in 1977 challenged our views of ecosystem functioning and yet, the research conducted at these extreme and logistically challenging environments still continues to reveal unique biological processes. Here, we report for the first time, a unique behavior where the deep-sea skate, Bathyraja spinosissima, a...
Article
Full-text available
The spotted eagle ray is an iconic species for the recreational diving and snorkeling industry in the Mexican Caribbean although it is heavily fished in nearby waters of the southern Gulf of Mexico and in Cuba. This species is listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as ‘Near Threatened’ with a decreasing population trend. Few studies have...
Article
Full-text available
Little information is available on the movements and behaviour of tropical rays despite their potential ecological roles and economic value as a fishery and a tourism resource. A description of the movement patterns and site fidelity of juvenile rays within a coral reef environment is provided in this study. Acoustic telemetry was used to focus on...
Article
Full-text available
DNA barcoding potentially offers scientists who are not expert taxonomists a powerful tool to support the accuracy of field studies involving taxa that are diverse and difficult to identify. The taxonomy of rays has received reasonable attention in Australia, although the fauna in remote locations such as Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia is poorly...

Project
Using an integrated risk assessment framework to understand the vulnerability of chondrichthyan fish occurring in the ETP to climate change
Project
Understand the potential of citizen science and the collaboration with the community to build research and conservation of charismatic elasmobranchs in the Riviera Maya (spotted eagle rays, whale sharks and mantas)
Project
The main goal of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of the Galapagos Marine Reserve in protecting shark populations under a changing climate, and to uncover spatial usage and regional connectivity patterns of the main shark species in the archipelago.
