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.
Conference Paper

Molluscs are a diverse phylum in coastal lagoons. Numerous gastropods and bivalves taxa that inhabit such lagoons display broad ranges of optima and tolerances with respect to temperature and salinity. We present the taxonomic composition and spatial distribution of mollusc assemblages (live-collected with soft parts intact or paired shells for Biv...
Article
Early naturalists suggested that predation intensity increases toward the tropics, affecting fundamental ecological and evolutionary processes by latitude, but empirical support is still limited. Several studies have measured consumption rates across latitude at large scales, with variable results. Moreover, how predation affects prey community com...

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...

Mollusk diversity in coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) has been studied extensively, but this is not the case for deep-water habitats. We present the first quantitative characterization of mollusks in shallow and deep waters of the Perdido Fold Belt. The data came from two research cruises completed in 2017. Sediment samples were collected...

The city of Cartagena, Colombia, was founded in 1533, making it the fifth oldest, continuously inhabitated colonial city in South America. Today, Cartagena is the fifth largest city in Colombia, with ~ 1.2 million inhabitants. Las Quintas Lagoon lies near the center of Cartagena and is connected hydrologically to the Bay of Cartagena and Las Virgen...

Eighteen species of deep-sea bivalves were collected below the Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ) core off western Mexico. This material was obtained during the research cruises XVI, XVIB (off the northwestern Peninsula of Baja California), and VIII (Gulf of California) of the TALUD project aboard the R/V El Puma. The samples were taken with an epibenthic s...

Bathybembix bairdii, the Baird’s top shell, is reported for the first time from off the Baja California Peninsula west coast and the southwestern coast of Mexico, at depths of 710-2,093 m. Environmental conditions measured near bottom were: 2.10 to 5.81 °C, 34.40 to 34.63 (salinity), and <0.12-0.90 ml L⁻¹ O2. The species was found mostly in muddy s...

Six sediment samples weighing between 224–735 g were collected in June of 2016 from Cayo Nuevo reef, located at the Campeche Bank, southern Gulf of Mexico. Samples were collected by SCUBA diving, from were two stations at depths of 7.6 and 18.2 m. Sediment was sieved and molluscs (adults and micromolluscs ≤ 10 mm) were sorted, examined, and identif...

In order to enhance the understanding of Pacific Colombia’s deep-water marine fauna, a benthic research cruise (2012 TUM Offshore 6 and 7) was conducted off the coast of the Department of Nariño, in southern Colombia. Biological, oceanographic and sediment samples from the continental shelf and slope were collected at depths between 350 and 941 m....

The present article describes Fissurella hendrickxi, a new deepsea gastropod species found off the Pacific coast of Mexico (Baja Peninsula; Gulf of California), at 650–837 m depth, collected by the TALUD XV and TALUD X projects. Fissurella hendrickxi was classified according to shell sculpture, radula, epipodium, and ctenidial structure. It is rema...

The class Bivalvia in the deep sea has been intensively studied worldwide (e.g., Zamorano et al., 2006; Krylova, 2010; Gracia and Valentich-Scott, 2012; Oliver, 2015; Güller and Zelaya, 2015; Schwabe et al., 2015). Still, many issues have remained unsolved when attempts are made to identify material at species level. This is often due to the lack o...

Background: During the TALUD XV research cruise off the southern part of the Baja California Peninsula, Mexico, samples of macro-invertebrates obtained in the deep-sea (296-2136 m) revealed a rich fauna of bivalves (17 species belonging to 10 families). The number of species per station varied from one to five. The richest families were Nuculidae,...

Background Most species of Polyplacophora are found in shallow, coastal water, and their distribution and ecology is generally well known. On the contrary, information related with distribution, biology and ecology of deep-sea chitons is scarce. Methods Specimens of the deep-sea mollusks fauna were obtained during sampling operations of western Mex...

The Joint Regime Area Jamaica-Colombia (JRA) is a sector of economic importance for Colombia but its biodiversity is unknown due to the difficult access. Therefore, the Institute of Marine and Coastal Research - Invemar in agreement with the National Hydrocarbon Agency - ANH, made an expedition in 2011 to obtain a first approximation to the diversi...

The Colombian Pacific Ocean has nearly 1,300 km of shoreline and 339,500 km² between estuarine, coastal and ocean waters, with depths up to 4,000 m. However we have relatively limited knowledge of its biodiversity, especially in deep-sea waters. Recent Colombian national baseline studies on soft bottoms of the shelf and upper slopes initiated by In...

Invasive species are considered the second cause for biodiversity loss worldwide, which makes them a determinant factor that pushes countries to generate research over the threatened native fauna and the affection it creates over the ecosystems. In Colombia, governmental institutions have been in charge of performing research related to invasive mo...

Since 2007 Colombia has been considered as the lead country for the south‐east Pacific basin within the project association GloBallast, international compromise in which the General Maritime Direction ‐ DIMAR was designated as the national focal point. One of the commitments under the guidelines of the project is focused on the creation of a port b...
