Climate change and control of the southeastern Bering Sea pelagic ecosystem
Increases in jellyfish biomass in the Bering Sea: implications for the ecosystem
The hypothesis that the presence of these large carnivores has affected fisheries resources, either through direct predation on larval stages, or through compe- tition for zooplankton prey is examined.

Resource allocation in breeding seabirds: responses to fluctuations in their food supply
The results suggest that fluctuations in food supply affect resource allocation in seabirds, and a decrease in food abundance is likely to cause an increase in energy expenditures of parent BLKIs, whereas growth rates of their chicks are less affected.
Patterns in prey use among fur seals and seabirds in the Pribilof Islands
Trends in carbon flux to seabirds in the Peruvian upwelling system: effects of wind and fisheries on population regulation
The model indicates that the growth of seabird populations from 1925 to 1955 was likely a response to increased productivity of the Peruvian upwelling system and that the subsequent drastic decline in seab bird abundance was likely due to competition for food with the fishery, which caught ∼85% of the anchovies, which otherwise would have been available for the seabirds.
Marine environment of the eastern and central Aleutian Islands
To examine the marine habitat of the endangered western stock of the Steller's sea lion (Eumetopias jubatus), two interdisciplinary research cruises (June 2001 and May to June 2002) measured water…
Rise and fall of jellyfish in the eastern Bering Sea in relation to climate regime shifts
Brood Reduction in Black-Legged Kittiwakes
B brood reduction in Black-legged Kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla) on St. Paul Island, Alaska was studied in 1978 and 1979, finding sibling differences frequently faalitated the removal of younger siblings from the nest by first-hatched young.
Oceanography and ecology of the Aleutian Archipelago: spatial and temporal variation
This compilation of new information and summaries of earlier work emphasizes variability within marine waters of the Aleutian Archipelago. From the Alaska Peninsula to Near Strait, net flow through…
