Diagnóstico de los Recursos Naturales de la Bahía y Micro-Cuenca de CACALUTA

The black iguana

University of the Sea. José Luis Arcos García – Roberto López Pozos
The black iguana is a charismatic species with an enormous productive potential, although the research carried out up until now is not enough, it represents an enormous challenge because raising animals in captivity for the maximum production of meat, eggs or leather requires knowledge from other fields that involve the conservation of the species and the maintenance of the environment.
Therefore the objective of this book is to supply some of the knowledge and techniques created on the management of the black iguana kept in captivity and to be understood by producers, students and researchers.
The main themes tackled in the book are the origin, taxonomic classification, habitat, distribution, philological adaptations, environment, nervous system and endocrinology, reproduction and nutrition that lay down the theoretical foundations of the development of the species kept in captivity.

Diagnóstico de los Recursos Naturales de la Bahía y Micro-Cuenca de CACALUTA

Diagnostics of the National Resources of La Bahia and the micro-basin of Cacaluta

University del Mar – Juan Manuel Domínguez-Licona Editor.
The environmental crises that the planet is living through is evident in the water basins. There are cases where they were not studied and there are mistakes in planning or an inadequacy in use which brings about environmental, socioeconomic or political problems too. The case of the micro-basin and Bahia del Rio, Cacaluta is an example of the situation which prevails on the coast of Oaxaca.
The micro-basin is characterized for being a strategic space for its biological richness, forming 55% of the area naturally protected; the other portion adjoins the National Park of Huatulco. The humid soils of the micro-basin of the river Cacaluta were recognized as ‘Ramsar Site’ and in addition, the zone was named the Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO within the ‘Program of Man and the Biosphere’ since December 2006.


Russia towards the Pacific Basin

Universidad del Mar – Eduardo Roldan, Valentina Prudnikov Romeiko.
The constant and prioritized attention of Russia towards the region of Pacific Asia, paralleled with the specific interest in Europe, is explained not only for its geographical proximity, but also for the necessity to establish a long-term and mutually advantageous cooperation with China, Japan and the U.S.A. According to the prognoses and opinions of different political scientists and economists, from the 1990’s, the center of world economic development has taken place in this region of the world through APEC.
This publication is a section of themes which do not try to be exhaustive. They mainly cover the interests and position of the Russian Federation in the Asian Pacific Basin, which could be significantly important to Mexico.
There are many arguments for placing the importance on the cooperation over this large range for bilateral Mexican-Russian relations. Both countries have their strategies directed towards political stability, the rapid growth of the economy, the problem of developing investments and innovation, the diversification of exterior commerce, the cultural interest and historical fitting and the touristic possibilities not taken advantage of yet.


Notebooks 1 – Practical Diagrams for Marine Culture

Universidad del Mar, Demetrio Porras Díaz, Laura Castrejón Ocampo.
Practical diagrams for marine culture, containing diagrams, figures and tables. It also contains references and contents pages. It is directed at students, technicians, teachers of intermediate or advanced level and marine cultivators in general. It is partly didactic in its teaching or presentation; it is practical for meetings in groups in that it allows the separation of the themes or the conjugation of tables and diagrams.


Biology and the Advantages of the Elf Prawn, Streptocephalus

Universidad del Mar, Laura Castrejón Ocampo, Colaboration: Martha Soriano Salazar, Elizabeth Soto Arroyo.
The Elf prawn, homologous of the crustacean Artemia, has been recently proposed as an alternative to live food. In marine culture, the knowledge of these organisms in the 1950’s focused basically on the description of their habitat and life-cycle; In the decade of the 1970’s, work was carried out on species (Wiman 1979) Recently, from the 1980’s, specific work has been done on their physiology and endocrinology (Mumuswamy and Subramoniam 1987). Likewise how cultivations with the focus on the use in marine culture (Castrejon 1986, 1989, 1990, 1991; Herrera 1986, Brendonck et al 1990, Mitchel 1991).
The scientific interest that has caused Streptocephalus, drives us to the elaboration of this document, compiling the information and updating the knowledge of this group which allows a better understanding of it.


Business women and Tourism on the Oaxacan coast. Diagnostic Report and Directory

Universidad del Mar, María José Fernández Aldecua, Pascal Barradas Salas.
In the last decade, a large number of women have entered the business field. In the case of the coastal regions of Oaxaca, especially in the touristic corridor of Puerto Escondido to Bahias de Huatulco, the activities of business women are more evident every day. In the tertiary sector of the economy, we find them participating actively in services which relate directly or indirectly to the regional touristic activities. In this way we can observe this participation in accommodation services (owners and administrators of hotels, cabins, bungalows and holiday homes), catering services (restaurants and cafes), recreation, (bars, discos, organization of land and sea excursions), retail commerce and recently in newer activities such as in spa centers (masseurs, temescal baths etc.), meditation centers and the renting of computer equipment or connection to internet.


Study of the Ecological Regulations for the coastal zone of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec

Universidad del Mar, Saúl J. Serrano Guzmán.
This document describes the distinct environmental and socioeconomic dimensions that converge in a portion of the coastal zone of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. The integration is the result of a process of analysis of the different topics relating to this area of land, which looks to identify some causal relationship between the environmental and socioeconomic dynamics and its particular problems. This research constitutes an effort to follow the design of a ‘Model of Ecological Regulations of Land’ which favors the regulated development of the fish and marine culture of Oaxaca.
