The Mediterranean Sea under siege: spatial overlap between marine biodiversity, cumulative threats and marine reserves
Aim A large body of knowledge exists on individual anthropogenic threats that have an impact on marine biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea, although we know little about how these threatsExpand

Quantifying Phylogenetic Beta Diversity: Distinguishing between ‘True’ Turnover of Lineages and Phylogenetic Diversity Gradients
The evolutionary dissimilarity between communities (phylogenetic beta diversity PBD) has been increasingly explored by ecologists and biogeographers to assess the relative roles of ecological andExpand

Low Connectivity between Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas: A Biophysical Modeling Approach for the Dusky Grouper Epinephelus marginatus
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are major tools to protect biodiversity and sustain fisheries. For species with a sedentary adult phase and a dispersive larval phase, the effectiveness of MPA networksExpand

Inferring food web structure from predator-prey body size relationships
1. Current global changes make it important to be able to predict which interactions will occur in the emerging ecosystems. Most of the current methods to infer the existence of interactions betweenExpand

Predicting trophic guild and diet overlap from functional traits: statistics, opportunities and limitations for marine ecology
Fish diets provide information that can be used to explore and model complex ecosys- tems, and infer resource partitioning among species. The exhaustive sampling of prey items captured by eachExpand

Comparing species interaction networks along environmental gradients
Knowledge of species composition and their interactions, in the form of interaction networks, is required to understand processes shaping their distribution over time and space. As such, comparingExpand

Protected and Threatened Components of Fish Biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea
The Mediterranean Sea (0.82% of the global oceanic surface) holds 4%-18% of all known marine species (~17,000), with a high proportion of endemism [1, 2]. This exceptional biodiversity is underExpand

The Use of a Predictive Habitat Model and a Fuzzy Logic Approach for Marine Management and Planning
Bottom trawl survey data are commonly used as a sampling technique to assess the spatial distribution of commercial species. However, this sampling technique does not always correctly detect aExpand

Representing taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity: new challenges for Mediterranean marine‐protected areas
Aim: To assess gaps in the representation of taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity among coastal fishes in Mediterranean marine-protected areas (MPAs). Location: Mediterranean Sea. Expand

Responses of coral reef fishes to past climate changes are related to life‐history traits
Abstract Coral reefs and their associated fauna are largely impacted by ongoing climate change. Unravelling species responses to past climatic variations might provide clues on the consequence ofExpand
