Food web structure is paramount in regulating a variety of ecologic patterns and processes, although food web studies are limited by poor empirical descriptions of inherently complex systems. In this… Continue Reading
We develop a model for somatic growth in fishes that explicitly allows for the energy demand imposed by reproduction. We show that the von Bertalanffy (VB) equation provides a good description of… Continue Reading
Abstract Fishing for recreation is a popular activity in many parts of the world and this activity has led to the development of a sector of substantial social and economic value worldwide. The… Continue Reading
Abstract The physiological basis for well-known correlations between summer air temperature indices and year-class strength in northern smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieui) populations was… Continue Reading
Compounds of the formula in which R1 and R2 independently are hydrogen, alkyl or aryl are described which compounds are potent inhibitors of premature vulcanization of rubber.
Life history characteristics of 54 Ontario lake trout ( Salvelinus namaycush) populations vary with differences in lake area (range 25-450 000 ha) and total dissolved solids (TDS) (range 15-180 mg·L… Continue Reading
Predicted increases in water temperature in response to climate change will have large implications for aquatic ecosystems, such as altering thermal habitat and potential range expansion of fish… Continue Reading
Many aquatic consumers have flexible feeding habits, and the diet and trophic position of a species can be expected to vary both within and among populations. In this study, we quantify the… Continue Reading
Multiple regression analysis and analysis of covariance were used to assess the degree to which observed variation in rates of production among 108 lake zooplankton populations could be accounted for… Continue Reading
A simple population model was developed to evaluate the role of plastic and evolutionary life-history changes on sustainable exploitation rates. Plastic changes are embodied in density-dependent… Continue Reading
