Climate Change and Distribution Shifts in Marine Fishes
We show that the distributions of both exploited and nonexploited North Sea fishes have responded markedly to recent increases in sea temperature, with nearly two-thirds of species shifting in meanExpand

Vulnerability of national economies to the impacts of climate change on fisheries
Anthropogenic global warming has significantly influenced physical and biological processes at global and regional scales. The observed and anticipated changes in global climate present significantExpand

Extinction vulnerability in marine populations
Human impacts on the world's oceans have been substantial, leading to concerns about the extinction of marine taxa. We have compiled 133 local, regional and global extinctions of marine populations.Expand

Life history correlates of responses to fisheries exploitation
We use an approach based on phylogenetic comparisons to identify life history correlates of abundance trends in 18 intensively exploited fish stocks from the north–east Atlantic. After accounting forExpand

Structural change in an exploited fish community: a consequence of differential fishing effects on species with contrasting life histories
1. An understanding of the links between life histories and responses to exploitation could provide the basis for predicting shifts in community structure by identifying susceptible species andExpand

Sexual competition is associated closely with parental care because the sex providing less care has a higher potential rate of reproduction, and hence more to gain from competing for multiple mates.Expand

Conservation benefits of marine reserves for fish populations
We synthesize the results of empirical studies of marine reserves to assess the potential benefits of protection for fish populations. Our meta-analyses demonstrate that the overall abundance ofExpand

Fishery Stability, Local Extinctions, and Shifts in Community Structure in Skates
Skates are arguably the most vulnerable of exploited marine fishes. Their vutlnerability is often as- sessed by examiningfisheries catch trends, but these data are not generally recorded on a speciesExpand
