PROPAGULE DISPERSAL IN MARINE AND TERRESTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS: A COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE
Studies in terrestrial systems suggest that long-distance propagule dispersal is important for landscape pattern and dynamics, but largely inconsequential for local demography. By contrast, in marineExpand

Temperature control of larval dispersal and the implications for marine ecology, evolution, and conservation
Temperature controls the rate of fundamental biochemical processes and thereby regulates organismal attributes including development rate and survival. The increase in metabolic rate with temperatureExpand

Lagrangian descriptions of marine larval dispersion
Many marine organisms are sedentary as adults and are redistributed between genera- tions by the oceanic transport of planktonic larvae. In order to assess interactions among oceano- graphic andExpand

The relationship between dispersal ability and geographic range size.
There are a variety of proposed evolutionary and ecological explanations for why some species have more extensive geographical ranges than others. One of the most common explanations is variation inExpand

Deep-water kelp refugia as potential hotspots of tropical marine diversity and productivity
Classic marine ecological paradigms view kelp forests as inherently temperate-boreal phenomena replaced by coral reefs in tropical waters. These paradigms hinge on the notion that tropical surfaceExpand

Propagule dispersal and the scales of marine community process
Benthic marine organisms are characterized by a bipartite life history in which populations of sedentary adults are connected by oceanic transport of planktonic propagules. In contrast with theExpand

Population ecology of the invasive kelp Undaria pinnatifida in California: environmental and biological controls on demography
We combined field monitoring and laboratory experiments to examine the population ecology of both the microscopic and macroscopic stages of a new invasion of Undaria pinnatifida in California. OverExpand

Reproduction on the edge: large-scale patterns of individual performance in a marine invertebrate.
Reproductive output is a central attribute of life history, providing a measure of individual and population performance. The fields of ecology, biogeography, and evolutionary biology take disparateExpand

A conceptual framework for comparing species assemblages in native and exotic habitats
Exotic (nonnative) species are known to have a wide variety of impacts on native biota. One potential set of impacts that have been poorly studied are the effects of replacing nativeExpand

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT OF GIANT KELP (MACROCYSTIS PYRIFERA, PHAEOPHYCEAE) EMBRYONIC SPOROPHYTES: A MECHANISM FOR DELAYED RECRUITMENT IN PERENNIAL KELPS? 1
Delayed recruitment of microscopic stages in response to cyclical cues is critical to the population dynamics of many annual and seasonally reproducing perennial seaweeds. Microscopic stages may playExpand
