The Laboratory of Bentonic Invertebrates has directed its research toward the study of communities of marine invertebrates and of salt waters of the Mexican Pacific, at times extending to the fauna of the tropical east Pacific or the east Pacific. Species or groups of species in bentonic and pelagic environments have been studied, emphasizing the communities of Decapods and Stomatopods, Crustacea, as well as mollusks.

The information now contained in the database of this collection includes 3 784 records of samples pertaining to 181 families, 262 genera and 465 species of Crustacea of Mexico, Peru, Cuba and Jamaica.
