Alien species and other notable records from a rapid assessment survey of marinas on the south coast of England
TLDR
The results of this survey indicate that dock pontoon systems in southern England are significant reservoirs of non-native species dispersed by vessels and other means, and the proliferation of these structures is therefore of conservation importance. Expand
Physical factors driving intertidal macroalgae distribution: physiological stress of a dominant fucoid at its southern limit
TLDR
Mechanistic approaches that are designed to analyse the interactive effects of physical stressors may improve the levels of confidence in predicted range shifts of species. Expand
SIZE STRUCTURE AND DYNAMICS IN A POPULATION OF SARGASSUM MUTICUM (PHAEOPHYCEAE)
TLDR
There was a negative biomass–density relationship (as a measure of biomass accumulation‐driven mortality) that confirms the importance of self‐thinning as a major demographic factor in the S. muticum population. Expand
European-scale analysis of seasonal variability in limpet grazing activity and microalgal abundance.
TLDR
Comparison of microalgal abundance among locations showed a general decline in standing stock with decreasing latitude, but differences between specific locations varied with season, and significant negative cor- relations between chlorophyll a and maximum monthly air temperature and monthly sunshine hours were found. Expand
A continental scale evaluation of the role of limpet grazing on rocky shores
TLDR
A clear trophic control of an ecosystem is shown in that grazing by limpets not only determines macroalgal abundance overall but also modifies ecosystem stability via variability in cover of algae. Expand
European seaweeds under pressure: Consequences for communities and ecosystem functioning
TLDR
With physical and biological changes occurring at unexpected pace, marine phycologists should integrate and join their research efforts to be able to contribute efficiently for the conservation and management of coastal systems. Expand
Patterns of landscape and assemblage structure along a latitudinal gradient in ocean climate
TLDR
The study revealed an abrupt macroecological change from northern Portugal to central and southern Portugal, suggesting a possible biogeographical reconfiguration and recognition of a wider tran- sitional area from the Atlantic into Mediterranean waters. Expand
The invasibility of marine algal assemblages: role of functional diversity and identity.
TLDR
Experimental results showed that the identity of functional groups was more important than functional richness in determining the ability of macroalgal communities to resist invasion and that resistance to invasion was resource-mediated. Expand
Temporal stability of European rocky shore assemblages : variation across a latitudinal gradient and the role of habitat-formers
TLDR
It is shown that the stability of intertidal assemblages and strength of compensatory dynamics varies with latitude, that canopy-forming macroalgae, exerting a strong control on understorey species, can influence the strength of compensated dynamics and that biological forcing can be as important as environmental forcing in enhancing the synchronization of species fluctuations.
