CINTRA BUENROSTRO, Carlos E.; REYES BONILLA, Héctor  and  ARIZPE COVARRUBIAS, Oscar. Los equinodermos (Echinodermata) del arrecife de Cabo Pulmo, Pacífico de México. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 1998, vol.46, n.2, pp.341-344. ISSN 0034-7744.

A systematic list of the echinoderms from Cabo Pulmo reef, Pacific coast of México (23.5° N), is presented. Data were obtained from field surveys (1986 to 1993), and complemented with literature searches. A total of 38 species have been reported at Cabo Pulmo, but only 25 of them were actually observed in the reef during our visits. This finding suggests that community structure and composition have changed in important ways since 1943, date of the first reports of echinoderms for the locality.

Keywords : Cabo Pulmo; Gulf of California; México; Echinodermata; Asteroidea; Ophiuroidea; Echinoidea; Holothuroidea.
