Advection-diffusion equations (ADEs) are concise and tractable mathematical descriptions of population distributions used widely to address spatial problems in applied and theoretical ecology. We assessed the potential of non-linear ADEs to approximate over very large time and space scales the spatial distributions resulting from social behaviors such as(More)
We have studied intrachromosomal gene conversion in mouse Ltk- cells with a substrate designed to provide genetic evidence for heteroduplex DNA. Our recombination substrate consists of two defective chicken thymidine kinase genes arranged so as to favor the selection of gene conversion products. The gene intended to serve as the recipient in gene conversion(More)
Many species of harmful algae transition between a motile, vegetative stage in the water column and a non-motile, resting stage in the sediments. Physiological and behavioral traits expressed during benthic-pelagic transition potentially regulate the timing, location and persistence of blooms. The roles of key physiological and behavioral traits involved in(More)
Climate change is affecting marine ecosystems, but different investigative approaches in physical, chemical, and biological disciplines may influence interpretations of climate-driven changes in the ocean. Here, we review the ocean change literature from 2007 to 2012 based on 461 of the most highly cited studies in physical and chemical oceanography and(More)
