Long-term trends in loblolly pine productivity and stand characteristics in response to thinning and fertilization in the West Gulf region
Abstract Two levels each of thinning and fertilization were applied to a 7-year-old loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantation on a nitrogen- and phosphorus-deficient West Gulf Coastal Plain site inExpand
Unusually high food availability in Kaikoura Canyon linked to distinct deep-sea nematode community
Kaikoura Canyon, on the eastern New Zealand continental margin, is the most productive, non- chemosynthetic deep-sea habitat described to date, with megafaunal biomass 100-fold higher than those ofExpand

Seagrass beds are common features of coastal ecosystems worldwide, and their associated infauna are often more productive and diverse than in unvegetated habitats. Little is known, however, about theExpand
Ecology of free-living nematodes
Estimating Pinus palustris tree diameter and stem volume from tree height, crown area and stand-level parameters
Accurate and efficient estimation of forest growth and live biomass is a critical element in assessing potential responses to forest management and environmental change. The objective of this studyExpand
Is there a link between deep-sea biodiversity and ecosystem function?
Studying the diversity-ecosystem function relationship in the deep sea is of primary importance in the face of biodiversity loss and for our understanding of how the deep sea functions. Results fromExpand
Macroinvertebrate diet in intertidal seagrass and sandflat communities: A study using C, N, and S stable isotopes
Abstract Most seagrass community food‐web studies using stable isotopes have been carried out in subtidal habitats during one sampling event. We used C, N, and S stable isotopes to characterise theExpand
Deep-sea nematodes (Comesomatidae) from the Southwest Pacific Ocean: five new species and three new species records
The present study describes five new free-living nematode species and provides three new species records of the family Comesomatidae (genera Cervonema Wieser, 1954, Dorylaimopsis Ditlevsen, 1918,Expand
Nematode beta diversity on the continental slope of New Zealand: spatial patterns and environmental drivers
The management of marine biodiversity relies on sound knowledge of beta (or turnover) and gamma (or regional) diversity patterns, but such knowledge is largely lacking for continental slopeExpand
