Settlement and transport of benthic invertebrates in an intermittent upwelling region
We monitored settlement of sea urchins (Strongylocentrotus spp.) and crabs (primarily Cancer spp.) and concurrent physical variables at Bodega Marine Laboratory (BML) and Salt Point (northernExpand

The genetic control and consequences of kin recognition by the larvae of a colonial marine invertebrate
The evolution of altruism, cooperation and sociality should be favoured by mechanisms promoting interactions among relatives1,2. In turn, the opportunity for such interactions should be enhancedExpand

Wave energy and intertidal productivity.
In the northeastern Pacific, intertidal zones of the most wave-beaten shores receive more energy from breaking waves than from the sun. Despite severe mortality from winter storms, communities atExpand

Effects of habitat fragmentation and isolation on species richness: evidence from biogeographic patterns
SummaryHabitat subdivision by geography or human activity may be an important determinant of regional species richness. Cumulative species-area relationships for vertebrates, land plants, and insectsExpand

Invasibility of experimental habitat Islands in a California winter annual grassland
In an experimental test of plant community invasibility, we introduced seeds of a native ruderal, California poppy (Eschscholzia californica). at fixed density into experimental plots in a CaliforniaExpand

Predicting species distributions: a critical comparison of the most common statistical models using artificial species
Aim To test statistical models used to predict species distributions under different shapes of occurrence–environment relationship. We addressed three questions: (1) Is there a statistical techniqueExpand

The influence of colonization in nested species subsets
Biotic communities inhabiting collections of insular habitat patches often exhibit compositional patterns described as “nested subsets”. In nested biotas, the assemblages of species in relativelyExpand

Harvest Refugia in Marine Invertebrate Fisheries: Models and Applications to the Red Sea Urchin, Strongylocentrotus franciscanus
Benthic marine invertebrates with planktonic larvae may exhibit Allee effects in reproduction or recruitment. Hydrodynamic considerations and experimental evidence suggest that species broadcastingExpand

angels, bandidos, outlaws, and pagans: the evolution of organized crime among the big four 1% motorcycle clubs
This paper outlines the evolution of the Big Four one percent motorcycle clubs?Hell's Angels, Bandidos, Outlaws, and Pagans?from near-groups to well-organized criminal confederations. The insights ofExpand

Climatic and spatial patterns of diversity in the serpentine plants of California
. The insular distribution of distinctive substrates, such as outcrops of serpentine rock, may either promote plant diversity by enhancing opportunities for speciation or reduce diversity byExpand
