Comparative Growth, Mortality, and Energetics of Marine Fish Larvae: Temperature and Implied Latitudinal Effects
Vital rates and energetics of marine fish larvae were examined in relation to tempera­ ture to determine if recruitment potential and spawning strategies might vary as a consequence of differences inExpand

Predation on Eggs and Larvae of Marine Fishes and the Recruitment Problem
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses predation as a factor that may regulate levels of recruitment or generate variations in it. It also discusses predation on fish eggs and larvae as anExpand

Emerging from Hjort's Shadow
Early in the 20 th century, Johan Hjort developed compelling arguments and hypotheses to explain recruitment variability that became dominant for more than 75 years. A cautious emergence from Hjort’sExpand

The ctenophore Mnemiopsis in native and exotic habitats: U.S. estuaries versus the Black Sea basin
The native habitats of the ctenophore, Mnemiopsis, are temperate to subtropical estuaries along the Atlantic coast of North and South America, where it is found in an extremely wide range ofExpand

Differences between marine and freshwater fish larvae: implications for recruitment
Differences in the dynamics (growth and mortality) and energetics properties of marine and freshwater fish larvae have important implications for determining the life stages at which year-class sizeExpand

Patterns and trends in larval‐stage growth and mortality of teleost fish*
Weight-specific growth (G) and instantaneous mortality (M) rates are linked processes during early life, and the MIG ratio determines stage-specific mortality. A comparative analysis of five speciesExpand

Effects of bottom-layer hypoxia on abundances and depth distributions of organisms in Patuxent River, Chesapeake Bay
Oxygen depletion, seasonally common in bottom waters of many stratified aquatic systems, may have strong effects on abundances, distributions, and interactions among organisms, and thereforeExpand
