Two pennate diatoms, Amphora coffeaeformis and Nitzschia ovalis, were used to evaluate potential responses to the future CO2 and temperature increases with respect to cell-specific growth rate, elemental composition, size, population growth rate, and carrying capacity. Diatoms were subjected to four different treatments over a 2 week period (approximately 4(More)
Routine metabolism (i.e. standard metabolism plus a low level of activity) of coastal largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides from Mobile-Tensaw Delta, AL, U.S.A. was examined as a function of temperature (15, 20, 25 and 30° C), salinity (0, 4, 8 and 12) and body mass (range 24-886 g) using flow-through respirometry. Functionally, a cubic relationship best(More)
Picoplankton (cells with a diameter of 0.2-3.0 μm) is the dominant contributor to both primary production and biomass in the ocean. Most of the previous studies on picoplankton have been conducted in the oligotrophic open sea with few in the eutrophic area. In this study, we investigated the dynamics of different groups of picoplankton and the diversity of(More)
Challenges and regulations associated with handling fish during fisheries management activities have increased efforts to achieve U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for an immediate-release sedative for fish. The objectives of this study were to (1) identify the target concentration of AQUI-S 20E for sedation of Pallid Sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus(More)
The absence of a suitable sedative allowing treated fish to be released immediately after recovery constrains research and poses a risk to fish and those handling them. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s reliance on multi-taxon datasets represents a major hurdle in the approval process. Experiments were conducted with twelve freshwater taxa to assess(More)
