Native fish community structure and Indo-Pacific lionfish Pterois volitans densities along a depth-temperature gradient in Onslow Bay, North Carolina, USA
We quantified native fish densities along a depth-temperature gradient within a tem- perate-tropical marine transition zone (North Carolina continental shelf) to examine the role of depth andExpand
Gambierdiscus (Dinophyceae) species diversity in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary, Northern Gulf of Mexico, USA §
TLDR
The consistent recovery of Gambierdiscus species from deep sampling sites in areas known to produce ciguatoxic fish signals a substantial change in the concept of suitable habitats for GambierDiscus to include depths greater than 50 m. Expand
Invasion of Asian tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon Fabricius, 1798, in the western north Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
The increased number of reports in 2011 and 2012 indicates that an adult population is present in densities sufficient for breeding, which is indicative of incipient establishment of the Asian tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon in the South Atlantic Bight and Gulf of Mexico. Expand
Dynamic responses and implications to coastal wetlands and the surrounding regions under sea level rise
TLDR
Hurricane storm surge simulations showed that under higher sea level rise scenarios, the marine-dominated estuary demonstrated weaker peak stage attenuation indicating that the marsh’s ability to dissipate storm surge is sensitive to productivity changes and bay expansion / marsh loss. Expand
Where a male is hard to find: consequences of male rarity in the surfgrass Phyllospadix torreyi
TLDR
The occurrence of seed production and recruitment at sites with extreme male rarity suggests some dispersal of seeds and pollen extending beyond the immediate vicinity of the site, andPollen or seed dispersal over longer distances, although rare, may reduce habitat fragmentation by facilitating colonization of newly available habitat. Expand
Conventional and technical diving surveys reveal elevated biomass and differing fish community composition from shallow and upper mesophotic zones of a remote United States coral reef
TLDR
Diving surveys of the upper mesophotic and shallow-water coral reef have revealed valuable information concerning the reef fish community in the northern Gulf of Mexico, with implications for the conservation of apex predators, oceanic coral reefs, and the future management of FGBNMS. Expand
