The Population Biology of Large Brown Seaweeds: Ecological Consequences of Multiphase Life Histories in Dynamic Coastal
TLDR
It is concluded that progress in understanding algal populations depends on better knowledge of microscopic stages and on feedback through density-dependent reproductive processes, dispersal, and settlement.
Comparative phylogeography of coastal limpets across a marine disjunction in New Zealand
TLDR
Divergence time calculations suggest contemporary North and South Island lineages diverged from their respective most recent common ancestor approximately 200 000 to 300 000 years before present, significantly earlier than previous estimates in other coastal marine taxa that arose from a miscalculation of divergence time.
TEN YEARS OF INDUCED OCEAN WARMING CAUSES COMPREHENSIVE CHANGES IN MARINE BENTHIC COMMUNITIES
TLDR
Responses of these benthic communities to ocean warming were mostly unpredicted and strongly coupled to direct effects of temperature on key taxa and indirect effects operating through ecological interactions, particularly habitat-forming subtidal kelps and intertidal foliose red algae.
Macroalgal assemblages in New Zealand: structure, interactions and demography

  • 1 March 1990
Quantitative descriptions of macroalgal distributions from low intertidal regions to a sublittoral depth of 20 m are presented for rocky reefs from several localities ranging over 16° latitude in New
Functional descriptions of feeding and energetics of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas in New Zealand
TLDR
There was greater variation of size-specific clearance rate (CR) standardised to dry tissue weight than to length, and oxygen consumption rate had an allometric rela- tionship to body size and increased over the range of experimental temperatures.
Regional connectivity and coastal expansion: differentiating pre‐border and post‐border vectors for the invasive tunicate Styela clava
TLDR
It is concluded that New Zealand receives multiple introductions, and that the primary vector for pre‐border incursions and post‐border spread is most likely the extensive influx of recreational vessels that enter northern marinas independent of the Port.
