Marine defaunation: Animal loss in the global ocean
Marine animals are disappearing, too The loss of animal species in terrestrial environments has been well documented and is continuing. Loss of species in marine environments has been slower than inExpand

Assessing the effects of large mobile predators on ecosystem connectivity.
Large predators are often highly mobile and can traverse and use multiple habitats. We know surprisingly little about how predator mobility determines important processes of ecosystem connectivity.Expand

Herbivore-initiated interaction cascades and their modulation by productivity in an African savanna
Despite conceptual recognition that indirect effects initiated by large herbivores are likely to have profound impacts on ecological community structure and function, the existing literature onExpand

Patterns, Causes, and Consequences of Anthropocene Defaunation
Anthropocene defaunation, the global extinction of faunal species and populations and the decline in abundance of individuals within populations, has been predominantly documented in terrestrialExpand

Ending hide and seek at sea
New technologies could revolutionize ocean observation The ocean remains the least observed part of our planet. This deficiency was made obvious by two recent developments in ocean governance: theExpand

Ecological selectivity of the emerging mass extinction in the oceans
To better predict the ecological and evolutionary effects of the emerging biodiversity crisis in the modern oceans, we compared the association between extinction threat and ecological traits inExpand

Niche partitioning among and within sympatric tropical seabirds revealed by stable isotope analysis
The low productivity and unpredictable nature of resources in tropical waters would appear to make resource partitioning among predators difficult. Yet, stable isotope data from the pre- sent studyExpand

Resource partitioning by species but not sex in sympatric boobies in the central Pacific Ocean
Sympatric species with similar ecological requirements and differences in body size would be expected to partition resources to facilitate coexistence. For sexually dimorphic species, we may expectExpand
