Soft-bottom macrofauna along the coast of Bahía de Los Ángeles, Gulf of California, during the summer and winter

This work constitutes an effort to evaluate benthic biodiversity in Bahía de Los Ángeles, Gulf of California, Mexico. To characterize macrofauna at the family level, 2 sampling campaigns took place during summer 2013 and winter 2014 at 6 coastal stations. A total of 18,403 invertebrates were collect...

To characterize macrofauna at the family level, 2 sampling campaigns took place during summer 2013 and winter 2014 at 6 coastal stations. A total of 18,403 invertebrates were collected, 7,880 in summer and 10,523 in winter. These invertebrates were grouped into 6 phyla and 110 families, comprising 39 mollusks, 33 crustaceans, 30 polychaetes, 5 echinoderms, 2 cnidarians, and 1 cephalochordate. In both sampling periods, mollusks were the dominant group, especially in summer, followed by polychaetes and crustaceans, which were more abundant in winter. Ten new records were established for the area. The most abundant trophic groups were deposit feeders and carnivores.

Este trabajo constituye un esfuerzo para evaluar la biodiversidad bentónica en bahía de Los Ángeles, golfo de California, México. Para caracterizar la macrofauna a nivel de familia, se realizaron 2 campañas de muestreo durante el verano de 2013 y el invierno de 2014 en 6 estaciones costeras. Se recolectaron un total de 18,403 invertebrados, 7,880 en verano y 10,523 en invierno. Los invertebrados estuvieron representados por 6 filos y 110 familias, que estaban compuestas por 39 moluscos, 33 crustáceos, 30 poliquetos, 5 equinodermos, 2 cnidarios y 1 cefalocordado. En ambos periodos de muestreo, los moluscos fueron el grupo dominante, especialmente en verano, seguido de los poliquetos y los crustáceos, los cuales fueron más abundantes en invierno. Se establecieron 10 nuevos registros para el área. Los grupos tróficos más abundantes fueron organismos detritívoros y carnívoros. Esta investigación podría ser utilizada para evaluar cambios futuros en ensamblajes bentónicos en bahía de Los Ángeles. 2021-03-05 2021-06-03T03:55:47Z 2021-06-03T03:55:47Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Peer-reviewed research note Nota de investigación arbitrada https://www.cienciasmarinas.com.mx/index.php/cmarinas/article/view/3146 10.7773/cm.v47i1.3146 https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12930/7596 eng https://www.cienciasmarinas.com.mx/index.php/cmarinas/article/view/3146/420420545 Copyright (c) 2021 Ciencias Marinas application/pdf Iniversidad Autónoma de Baja California Ciencias Marinas; Vol. 47 No. 1 (2021); 49–59 Ciencias Marinas; Vol. 47 Núm. 1 (2021); 49–59 2395-9053 0185-3880
