BOFFFFs: on the importance of conserving old-growth age structure in fishery populations
Mark A. Hixon1*, Darren W. Johnson2, and Susan M. Sogard3 Department of Biology, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, Hawai’i, HI, USA Department of Biology, California State University, Long Beach, CA,Expand
Self‐recruitment and sweepstakes reproduction amid extensive gene flow in a coral‐reef fish
Identifying patterns of larval dispersal within marine metapopulations is vital for effective fisheries management, appropriate marine reserve design, and conservation efforts. We employed geneticExpand
Predation, habitat complexity, and variation in density-dependent mortality of temperate reef fishes.
Density dependence in demographic rates can strongly affect the dynamics of populations. However, the mechanisms generating density dependence (e.g., predation) are also dynamic processes and may beExpand
Characteristics, distribution and persistence of thin layers over a 48 hour period
The biological and physical processes contributing to planktonic thin layer dynamics were examined in a multidisciplinary study conducted in East Sound, Washington, USA between June 10 and June 25,Expand
Habitat complexity modifies post-settlement mortality and recruitment dynamics of a marine fish.
For species that have an open population structure, local population size may be strongly influenced by a combination of propagule supply and post-settlement survival. While it is widely recognizedExpand
Density dependence and population regulation in marine fish: a large‐scale, long‐term field manipulation
Do small-scale experiments showing spatial density dependence in marine fishes scale-up to temporal density dependence and regulation of relatively large local populations? If so, what are theExpand
Density dependence in marine fish populations revealed at small and large spatial scales.
Experimental manipulation of population density has frequently been used to demonstrate demographic density dependence. However, such studies are usually small scale and typically provide evidence ofExpand
Genetic correlations between adults and larvae in a marine fish: potential effects of fishery selection on population replenishment
Correlated genetic responses have been hypothesized as important components of fishery‐induced evolution, although predictive data from wild populations have been difficult to obtain. Here, weExpand
THE MAINTENANCE OF SPERM VARIABILITY: CONTEXT‐DEPENDENT SELECTION ON SPERM MORPHOLOGY IN A BROADCAST SPAWNING INVERTEBRATE
Why are sperm so variable despite having a singular, critical function and an intimate relationship with fitness? A key to understanding the evolution of sperm morphology is identifying which traitsExpand
QUANTIFYING EVOLUTIONARY POTENTIAL OF MARINE FISH LARVAE: HERITABILITY, SELECTION, AND EVOLUTIONARY CONSTRAINTS
For many marine fish, intense larval mortality may provide considerable opportunity for selection, yet much less is known about the evolutionary potential of larval traits. We combined fieldExpand
