(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 43, No. 2, 172-180, 2007, 2007-12)
A study was conducted on the industrial area waters of Guayanilla Bay to determine the potential for microbial utilization of toxic compounds such as fluorene, naphthalene, phenanthrene, phenol and pentachlorophenol (PCP) ...
Helminthora anomala sp. nov. (Liagoraceae, Rhodophyta) from Puerto Rico
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 41, No. 4, 834-842, 2005, 2005-12)
A new species of Helminthora, H. anomala Vélez et Vega (Liagoraceae, Rhodophyta), is described from Puerto Rico. This new species has curved carpogonial branches in median positions on cortical fascicles, with dumbbell-shaped ...
Foraging Behavior, Home Range, Movements and Activity Patterns of Epicrates inornatus (Boidae) at Mata de Plátano Reserve in Arecibo, Puerto Rico
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 40, No. 3, 343–352, 2004, 2004-12)
Observations of foraging behavior of the Puerto Rican boa (Epicrates inornatus) were performed at a cave entrance beginning one hour before sunset until one hour after sunrise. Boas captured bats from 1745 h to 0600 h, but ...
Montanegra arenaria (Agaricaeceae, Basiodiomyocota), a New Record for Puerto Rico
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 42, No. 2, 244-246, 2006, 2006-12)
The euagaric Montagnea arenaria (Basidiomycota) is reported from a dry region of southwestern Puerto Rico. This is a new record for Puerto Rico, and only the second record of this fungus in the Caribbean. The Puerto Rican ...
Coexistence of Feral Africanized and European Honey Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Apidae) on St. Croix Island
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 44, No. 2, 264-266, 2008, 2008-07)
The first evaluation of the feral population of honey bees on the island of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands is performed. Since Africanized bees had been reported in 1994, we expected that, as in the neighboring island of ...
Observations on morphology and the taxonomic affiliation of Coelothrix irregularis (Harv.) Børgesen (Rhodymeniales, Rhodophyta)
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 46, No. 1, 71-82, 2010, 2010)
Coelothrix irregularis (Harv.) Børgesen, until recently a member of the Rhodymeniaceae, has had several familial assignments within the Rhodymeniales. While suggested by some that the genus belonged in the Champiaceae on ...
Movement of fishes (Grunts: Haemulidae) across the coral reef seascape: A review of scales, patterns and processes
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 45, No. 2-3, 304-316, 2009, 2009)
Reef fish movements over short and long time frames have important consequences for identifying essential fish habitat, quantifying ecological flows across the seascape and designing marine reserves. We use grunts (Haemulidae) ...
Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies: Integrating Science and Management in the Caribbean
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 45, No. 2-3, 134-137, 2009, 2009)
Flower Phenology and Sexual Maturation: Partial Protandrous Behavior in Three Species of Orchids
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 42, No. 1, 75-80, 2006, 2006-04)
Plants have theoretically multiple alternatives for preventing self pollination and consequently the effect of inbreeding, such as sequential flowering, dichogamy and self–incompatibility to name a few. We investigated the ...
Sediment transport and the distribution of shallow-water gorgonians
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 45, No. 2-3, 254-259, 2009, 2009)
The objective of this study was to provide evidence supporting the contention that sediment transport (bedload) is a major environmental factor controlling the distribution of shallow-water gorgonian species. Gorgonians ...
