The ecology and conservation of Cuba's coastal and marine ecosystems
This special issue celebrates Cuban marine science and conservation efforts, while recognizing that improved relations and increased tourism and trade could put some natural areas at risk.
  Understanding the structure and resilience of trophic dynamics in the northern Gulf of Mexico using network analysis
Gulf of Mexico trophic networks are less connected and complex than previously thought, which stresses the need for consistent reporting of stomach contents to improve understanding of the food habits of lesser-known taxa in this region.
  Effects of habitat manipulation by red grouper, Epinephelus morio, on faunal communities associated with excavations in Florida Bay
Juvenile red grouper strongly influence fish and invertebrate communities through habitat modifications in excavation holes in Florida Bay, USA.
  Genetic structure of natural and broodstock populations of the long-spined sea urchin, Diadema antillarum, throughout the Florida Keys
Genetic structure of long-spined sea urchins in the Florida Reef Tract reveals little regional genetic differentiation of populations, indicating that captive-bred urchins could be used to re-establish healthy urchin populations in the Florida Keys.
