Abstract

The Sea of Cortes has been touted as an area of great biological diversity. However, much of the information on the biota of this area comes from single visits, often several decades old, and frequently the data is transmitted only verbally or in a generic sense. Regretably, although a number of scientists conduct research in the area, little information has been published. As a result, our ability to determine the temporal or spatial changes in the populations of the native species of this area, and the negative impacts of human activities is limited.
