With the aim of analyzing the biodiversity of coral reefs, specifically of the benthic marine fauna, this manual was prepared by a group of taxonomic experts to guide the adequate treatment and preservation of organisms associated with autonomous reef monitoring structures (ARMS) and thus for inclusion in scientific collections.
Autonomous reef monitoring structures (ARMS) have been proposed as a standardized, passive, nondestructive sampling tool. This study assessed the ability of ARMS to capture the cryptic species diversity of two coral reefs by recording species richness and taxonomic representativeness using conventional taxonomy. The capacity of ARMS, as artificial...
Urban tourist beach ecosystems provide the essential service of recreation. These ecosystems also support critical ecological functions where biodiversity conservation is not usually a priority. The sudden lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic created a unique opportunity to evaluate the effects of human absence in these urban-coastal ecosystems. T...
The biodiversity of the coastal ecosystems in the Gulf of Mexico is threatened by anthropogenic activities of various kinds. The predominant portion of the land-sea margin in the State of Yucatán consists of exposed sandy beaches. This ecosystem is threatened by several activities that vary in spatial scales, at a local: cargo/fishing ports, touris...

Resumen Se analiza la biodiversidad, abundancia y distribución de los anfípodos bentónicos en los arrecifes de Sisal y Madagascar, incluyendo la línea de costa adyacente, SE del golfo de México. Se recolectaron 12,986 anfípodos, pertenecientes a 95 especies, 51 géneros, 32 familias y 3 subórdenes (Amphilochidea, Colomastigidea y Senticaudata), entr...
Biodiversity, new species records, geographic distribution range extensions, and invasive species of benthic amphipods from Puerto Progreso, Yucatán, Mexico, were analyzed. A total of 39 species, belonging to 21 genus, 16 families, and 2 suborders Gammaridea and Corophiidea, were identified. The species Caprella equilibra Say, 1818, Dulichiella lec...
