Food Security: The Challenge of Feeding 9 Billion People
A multifaceted and linked global strategy is needed to ensure sustainable and equitable food security, different components of which are explored here. Expand
Mutual Interference Between Parasites or Predators and its Effect on Searching Efficiency
A number of experiments indicate that a basic assumption implicit in early population models of predator-prey and parasite-host interactions is false. Expand
Estimating the Worldwide Extent of Illegal Fishing
This paper provides the baseline against which successful action to curb illegal fishing can be judged, and can report a significant correlation between governance and the level of illegal fishing. Expand
Climate change: Migration as adaptation
Mobility can bring opportunities for coping with environmental change, say researchers at the University of Bath. Expand
Hopes for the Future: Restoration Ecology and Conservation Biology

Fishing elevates variability in the abundance of exploited species
Evidence is presented from the marine environment that exploited species exhibit higher temporal variability in abundance than unexploited species, and this remains true after accounting for life-history effects, abundance, ecological traits and phylogeny. Expand
Current Problems in the Management of Marine Fisheries
The analysis suggests that management authorities need to develop legally enforceable and tested harvest strategies, coupled with appropriate rights-based incentives to the fishing community, for the future of fisheries to be better than their past. Expand
Why fishing magnifies fluctuations in fish abundance
In California Current fisheries, increased temporal variability in the population does not arise from variable exploitation, nor does it reflect direct environmental tracking, but arises from increased instability in dynamics. Expand
Harvesting Natural Populations in a Randomly Fluctuating Environment
These observations accord with observed trends in several fish and whaling industries and are likely to apply if the aim is to maximize the present value of (discounted) net economic revenue. Expand
