marmap: A Package for Importing, Plotting and Analyzing Bathymetric and Topographic Data in R
In this communication we introduce marmap, a package designed for downloading, plotting and manipulating bathymetric and topographic data in R. marmap can query the ETOPO1 bathymetry and topographyExpand
Habitat‐driven population structure of bottlenose dolphins, Tursiops truncatus, in the North‐East Atlantic
Despite no obvious barrier to gene flow, historical environmental processes and ecological specializations can lead to genetic differentiation in highly mobile animals. Ecotypes emerged in severalExpand
Invasion of the eastern Bay of Biscay by the nassariid gastropod Cyclope neritea: origin and effects on resident fauna
The distribution area of the nassariid gastropod Cyclope neritea (L.) includes the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, as well as the Atlantic coasts of the southern Iberian Peninsula. The species hasExpand
Ecological opportunities and specializations shaped genetic divergence in a highly mobile marine top predator
Environmental conditions can shape genetic and morphological divergence. Release of new habitats during historical environmental changes was a major driver of evolutionary diversification. Here,Expand
Zooplankton community structure in a highly turbid environment (Charente estuary, France): Spatio-temporal patterns and environmental control
Abstract Zooplankton assemblages were studied from January 2007 to January 2008 along the salinity gradient of the Charente estuary (France). A Lagrangian survey was performed monthly at fiveExpand
Habitat partitioning and fine scale population structure among insular bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in a tropical lagoon
article i nfo Among marine organisms, little is known on patterns of intra-species habitat partitioning, whereas many studies have examined niche segregation at the multi-species community level. InExpand
Large-scale mitochondrial COI gene sequence variability reflects the complex colonization history of the invasive soft-shell clam, Mya arenaria (L.) (Bivalvia)
Abstract The aim of the study was to determine genetic diversity in the soft-shell clam Mya arenaria on a wide geographical scale using mtDNA COI gene sequences. Low levels of genetic diversity wasExpand
Species- and size-related patterns in stable isotopes and mercury concentrations in fish help refine marine ecosystem indicators and provide evidence for distinct management units for hake in the
Recent European environmental policies argue for the development of indicators of the ecological status of ecosystems that are easy to implement and powerful enough to detect changes quickly. ForExpand
Properties of the dynamics of intertidal microphytobenthic biomass
The short-term variability of intertidal microphytobenthic biomass was characterized by analysing a 30-day time series encompassing two spring–neap tide cycles. Chlorophyll-a concentration wasExpand
Multiple introductions promote range expansion of the mollusc Cyclope neritea (Nassariidae) in France: evidence from mitochondrial sequence data
Since the 1970s, the nassariid gastropod Cyclope neritea has been extending its range north along the French Atlantic coasts from the Iberian Peninsula. This may be due to natural spread because ofExpand
