About Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico, “the island of enchantment,” affords visitors all of the pleasures of a tropical island. The Puerto Rico Tourism Company (http://www.gotopuertorico.com/) offers detailed information on places to go and things to see and do. The smallest of the Greater Antilles, the island is large enough to host important freshwater ecosystems, notably the intricate subterranean river system embedded in the northwestern karst terrain. Extensive mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs surround the island. For more information please see Limnología y Oceanografía en un Mundo en Cambio by J. Corredor ASLO Bulletin 18 (4): 95-96.
