  • Mollusc identified in sediment cores from Río Lagartos coastal Lagoon increased the total number of taxa previously registred

  • The number of mollusc species in sediment cores is nearly double that from the present-day inventory of taxa.

  • Stratigraphic shifts in sedimented molluscs assemblages revealed past environmental changes.

  • Mollusc species composition in sediment cores revealed differences across space and through time.
