About this book series

The book series Brazilian Marine Biodiversity was designed to communicate to a broad and international readership the diversified marine and coastal habitats along the large Brazilian coast.


The diversity of marine habitats found in Brazil is astonishing and includes estuaries, coral reefs, rocky shores, sandy beaches, rhodolith beds, mangroves, salt marshes, deep-sea habitats, vegetated bottoms, and continental shelf. These habitats are addressed from an ecosystem perspective across the series, and characterized in terms of distribution and peculiarities along the Brazilian coast, records of relevant species, and information on the prevailing structuring ecological and oceanographic processes governing biodiversity.


This series is an initiative of the UNESCO Chair for Ocean Sustainability, hosted by the Oceanographic Institute and the Advanced Studies Institute of the University of São Paulo, within the Brazilian Network for Monitoring Coastal Benthic Habitats (ReBentos; rebentos.org), which is supported by the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), the Research Program on Biodiversity Characterization, Conservation, Restoration and Sustainable Use of the São Paulo Research Foundation (BIOTA-FAPESP), the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES) and the Brazilian Innovation Agency (FINEP). ReBentos is part of the Brazilian Network on Global Climate Change Research (Rede Clima) and the Science and Technology National Institute on Climate Changes (INCT Mudanças Climáticas) at the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI).
