General

  • Mission:
  • Centro Universitario de la Costa is an educational and research center. As part of the research program, our research group integrated by Professors, undergraduate and graduate students is actively contribuing with the management of the most important coral communitie located at Islas Marietas which is a Natural Protected Area etablished in 2005. Recent work is focused with the measure of pre-bleaching stress response in colonies of Pocillopora sp. at Islas Marietas to both understand their differential spatial distribution and to predict how they will respond to future ENSO events and global climate change and be able to target sensitive areas that may need special protection so that management strategies can better conserve these coral communities.

  • History:
  • Coastal Research group is part of the Biological Science department at Centro Universitario de la grupo wich was first formed in 1999 with the goal of generating basic and applied science of the most important marine enviroments from the sourronding area.
    Our research group is closely related with govermental institutions as an inter-institutional effort to develop a more efficient planning and management programs for the use and conservation of the coastal resources.
    So far, funding for experiments and fieldworklab has been obtained from projects overseen by the principals professors and National Commission of Natural Protected Areas [CONANP]; however, founding in limited and this compromises the continous tracking and application of the accions or results obtained from the experimental and fieldwork.
