Baker Redescriptions of the Dampwood Termites Neotermes jouteli and N. luykxi (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae) from Florida, Cuba, Bahamas, and Turks and Caicos Islands, two species of dampwood termites, Neotermes jouteli (Banks) and N. luykxi Nickle & Collins, are redescribed based on the imago and the small and large soldier caste. Morphological characters are reported to separate the above castes of these two species. Update on geographic spread of invasive lionfishes (Pterois volitans [Linnaeus, 1758] and P. miles [Bennett, 1828]) in the Western North Atlantic Ocean, see Schofield (2009) for details of lionfish establishment in these regions, which include: Atlantic Coast of Mainland USA (Miami, Florida to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina) Bermuda Islands Commonwealth of the Bahamas Turks and Caicos Islands Cayman Islands Republic. Native, introduced, and structure-infesting termites of the Turks and Caicos Islands, BWI (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae, Rhinotermitidae, Termitidae, a survey of termites (Isoptera) from Providenciales and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands, British. Indies was compiled by Banks (1919) who listed 22 species, 9 of which he described, from museum specimens of collec- tions made in the Bahamas, Jamaica, Trinidad. Species-specific impacts of a small marine reserve on reef fish production and fishing productivity in the Turks and Caicos Islands, the effects of fishing pressure and habitat on biomass and catch per unit effort (CPUE) of three species of exploited reef fish were studied at South Caicos, Turks and Caicos Islands. And fishing productivity in the Turks and Caicos Islands. A new fossil land tortoise in the genus Chelonoidis (Testudines: Testudinidae) from the Northern Bahamas: with an osteological assessment of other, the turtle remains include the fà rst complete skull, first intact shells, and first associated vertebrae and appendicular skeletons of a tortoise from The Bahamas and'or West. Caves, and archaeological sites in the Bahamian archipelago, ¡ncluding à hc Turks and Caicos Islands. Seascape genetics: a coupled oceanographic-genetic model predicts population structure of Caribbean corals, across major regions of the Caribbean (Panama, Belize, the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico and Curacao), data from three nuclear introns and mtDNA indicate that genetic differentiation for staghorn corals is high, with an average F ST of 0.021-0.235 (Vollmer.

Scaling of connectivity in marine populations, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands form an enclave of high connectivity in the northern Caribbean, which is largely isolated from the remaining Caribbean domain, except for minor exchange from the north coast of Cuba and Haiti. A new genus and two new species of subterranean amphipod crustaceans (Hadziidae) from the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands, bahadzia, new genus, and two new species of amphipod crustaceans are described from anchialine caves in the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands. One of the species is recorded from three caves on Grand Bahama Island and one cave on Great Abaco Island. The fauna of Atlantic marine caves: evidence of dispersal by sea floor spreading while maintaining ties to deep waters, we feel that data recently gathered in Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos, Ascension, and the Canary Islands (Fig. 1) shed light on some of the puzzling distributional patterns noted for cavernicolous crustaceans. Beyond sun, sand and sea: The emergent tourism programme in the Turks and Caicos Islands, creating heritage in the Turks and Caicos Islands one could easily argue that, to date, the tourism 'product' of turks and Caicos is indistinguishable from many other places. tCi's shore line, reefs and topography resemble many of the islands in the Bahamas. Fishing effort allocation and fishermen's decision making process in a multi-species small-scale fishery: Analysis of the conch and lobster fishery in Turks and Caicos, the main issue we address in this paper is the understanding of fishing effort allocation using the example of the artisanal fisheries of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a group of seven small islands located at the southeastern end of the Bahamas archipelago (Fig. Geographic extent and chronology of the invasion of non-native lionfish (Pterois volitans [Linnaeus 1758] and P. miles [Bennett 1828]) in the Western North Atlantic, temperatures.

Taxonomy, biogeography, and notes on termites (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae, Rhinotermitidae, Termitidae) of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands, termite surveys of 33 islands of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos (BATC) archipelago yielded 3,533 colony samples from 593 sites. Twenty-seven species from three families and 12 genera were recorded as follows: Cryptotermes brevis (Walker), Cr. cavifrons Banks.

Third world level conch mariculture in the Turks and Caicos Islands, today there are only three areas that still have commercially exploitable stocks of conch: the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and Be- lize. The increased economic importance and severe overï¬ shing of conch has re sulted in a need to replenish conch stocks. by PJ Schofield
