Invasive range expansion by the Humboldt squid, Dosidicus gigas, in the eastern North Pacific
A unique 16-year time series of deep video surveys in Monterey Bay reveals that the Humboldt squid, Dosidicus gigas, has substantially expanded its perennial geographic range in the eastern NorthExpand

Deep pelagic biology
The deep pelagic habitat is a vast volume of cold, dark water where food is scarce and bioluminescence is the principal source of light and communication. Understanding the adaptations that allowExpand

Oceanographic and biological effects of shoaling of the oxygen minimum zone.
Long-term declines in oxygen concentrations are evident throughout much of the ocean interior and are particularly acute in midwater oxygen minimum zones (OMZs). These regions are defined byExpand

Biologic and geologic characteristics of cold seeps in Monterey Bay, California
Cold seep communities discovered at three previously unknown sites between 600 and 1000 m in Monterey Bay, California, are dominated by chemoautotrophic bacteria (Beggiatoa sp.) and vesicomyid clamsExpand

Mesopelagic zone ecology and biogeochemistry - a synthesis
The mesopelagic zone is the oceanic region through which carbon and other elements must pass in order to reach deeper waters or the sea floor. However, the food web interactions that occur in theExpand

Free-Drifting Icebergs: Hot Spots of Chemical and Biological Enrichment in the Weddell Sea
The proliferation of icebergs from Antarctica over the past decade has raised questions about their potential impact on the surrounding pelagic ecosystem. Two free-drifting icebergs, 0.1 and 30.8Expand

Giant Larvacean Houses: Rapid Carbon Transport to the Deep Sea Floor
An unresolved issue in ocean science is the discrepancy between the food requirements of the animals living on the deep sea floor and their food supply, as measured by sediment traps. A 10-yearExpand

Seasonal abundance of the siphonophore, Nanomia bijuga, in Monterey Bay
Abstract Quantitative video surveys, conducted in the upper 1000 m in Monterey Bay from an ROV, showed that the year-round population of the siphonophore Nanomia bijuga occupied a daytime depth rangeExpand

Assessing the apparent imbalance between geochemical and biochemical indicators of meso- and bathypelagic biological activity: What the @#! is wrong with present calculations of carbon budgets?
Metabolic activity in the water column below the euphotic zone is ultimately fuelled by the vertical flux of organic material from the surface. Over time, the deep ocean is presumably at steadyExpand

Nuclear Factor κB Signaling Regulates Neuronal Morphology and Cocaine Reward
Although chronic cocaine-induced changes in dendritic spines on nucleus accumbens (NAc) neurons have been correlated with behavioral sensitization, the molecular pathways governing these structuralExpand
