Can otolith elemental chemistry retrospectively track migrations in fully marine fishes?
Otolith microchemistry can provide valuable information about stock structure and mixing patterns when the magnitude of environmental differences among areas is greater than the cumulative influenceExpand

Physiological influences can outweigh environmental signals in otolith microchemistry research
Most studies that infer geographic distributions of fish using otolith microchemistry assume that environmental factors (e.g. temperature, salinity) outweigh intrinsic effects (e.g. size, condition);Expand

Locations of marine animals revealed by carbon isotopes
Knowing the distribution of marine animals is central to understanding climatic and other environmental influences on population ecology. This information has proven difficult to gain throughExpand

The effect of growth rate on tissue-diet isotopic spacing in rapidly growing animals. An experimental study with Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
The difference in isotopic composition between a consumer's tissues and that of its diet is a critical aspect of the use of stable isotope analyses in ecological and palaeoecological studies. In aExpand

Trophic interactions of fish communities at midwater depths enhance long-term carbon storage and benthic production on continental slopes
Biological transfer of nutrients and materials between linked ecosystems influences global carbon budgets and ecosystem structure and function. Identifying the organisms or functional groups that areExpand

A comparison of otolith microchemistry and otolith shape analysis for the study of spatial variation in a deep-sea teleost, Coryphaenoides rupestris
The study of the morphological and chemical characteristics of otoliths have recently been proposed as complementary tools for fish stock identification. However, their effectiveness remains to beExpand

The long–term survival of bone: the role of bioerosion
Fossil bones (N = 350) spanning more than 350 million years, and covering a wide range of depositional environments, were studied to compare the distribution of microbial destruction features inExpand

Stable isotope analyses of collagen in fish scales: limitations set by scale architecture
Comparisons between the stable isotope composition of carbon in collagen excized from juvenile (freshwater) and adult (marine) portions of scales from Atlantic salmon Salmo salar demonstrated that c.Expand

Identifying migrations in marine fishes through stable-isotope analysis.
The isotopic composition of many elements varies across both land and ocean surfaces in a predictable fashion. These stable-isotope ratios are transferred into animal tissues, potentially providing aExpand

Prolonged coexistence of humans and megafauna in Pleistocene Australia.
Recent claims for continent wide disappearance of megafauna at 46.5 thousand calendar years ago (ka) in Australia have been used to support a "blitzkrieg" model, which explains extinctions as theExpand
