Intercalibration of four spectrofluorometric protocols for measuring RNA/DNA ratios in larval and juvenile fish
It is recommended that the ratio of the slopes of the standard curves be provided to facilitate intercomparability of R/D results among laboratories using different spectrofluorometric methods for the analysis of nucleic acids in fish. Expand
Pelagic fish assemblages assessed using mid-water baited video: standardising fish counts using bait plume size
The results indicate that oceanographic characteristics can be important for pelagic fish habitat selection over the scale of kilometres and should be considered during marine protected area zoning. Expand
Bigger? Fatter? Or is faster growth better? Considerations on condition in larval and juvenile coral-reef fish
Growth indices have great potential for determining which individuals were growing faster, thereby reducing their pelagic duration, and thus increasing their survival potential, by determining if larvae with faster growth indices have relatively enhanced survival. Expand
The strengthening East Australian Current, its eddies and biological effects — an introduction and overview
The poleward flowing East Australian Current (EAC) is characterised by its separation from the coast, 100–200 nautical miles north of Sydney,to form the eastward flowing Tasman Front and a southwardExpand
Plankton: a guide to their ecology and monitoring for water quality
The biology, ecology and identification of plankton and their use in monitoring water quality. Healthy waterways and oceans are essential for our increasingly urbanised world. Yet monitoring waterExpand
Carbon and nitrogen stable isotope analysis of three types of oyster tissue in an impacted estuary
The stable isotope ratios of carbon (d 13 C) and nitrogen (d 15 N) of the muscle, ctenidia and viscera of the Sydney rock oyster, Saccostrea glomerata, showed the dilution and assimilation ofExpand
Comparison of baited remote underwater video (BRUV) and underwater visual census (UVC) for assessment of artificial reefs in estuaries
Results indicate that BRUV is an effective method for recording species associated with artificial reefs with the exception of cryptic species that are located within the reef structure itself. Expand
Key habitat and home range of mulloway Argyrosomus japonicus in a south-east Australian estuary: finding the estuarine niche to optimise stocking
The preferred habitats, home range and activity patterns of sub-adult mulloway Argy- rosomus japonicus (Sciaenidae) in the Georges River, New South Wales, Australia, were investigated usingExpand
A size-resolved pelagic ecosystem model
A size-resolved pelagic ecosystem model is developed using descriptions of physical lim- its to biological processes and allometric relationships to determine physiological rates to allow the number of size-classes to be varied and for a convergence of output with increasing resolution to be achieved.

Role of Hypoxia in Limiting Diel Spring and Summer Distribution of Juvenile Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) in a Prairie Marsh
Comparative field and laboratory data on the distribution-limiting levels of dissolved oxygen (DO) for yearling yellow perch (Perca flavescens) is presented and in situ survival experiments demonstrated decreased survival close to the substr... Expand
