Marine pest incursions can cause significant ongoing damage to aquaculture, biodiversity, fisheries habitat, infrastructure and social amenity. They represent a significant and ongoing economic burden. Marine pests can be introduced by several vectors including aquaculture, aquarium trading, commercial shipping, fishing, floating debris, mining activities(More)
Coral reefs, one of the world's most complex and vulnerable ecosystems, face an uncertain future in coming decades as they continue to respond to anthropogenic climate change, overfishing, pollution, and other human impacts [1, 2]. Traditionally, marine macroecology is based on presence/absence data from taxonomic checklists or geographic ranges, providing(More)
Reproductive seasonality and lunar periodicity of planula release were investigated for the three brooding coralsPocillopora damicornis, Seriatopora hystrix, andStylophora pistillata at Heron Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef. Branch fragments collected from undisturbed colonies in the field were used to determine when planulae were present for all(More)

Self-diffusion of cell water has been measured at diffusion times ranging from 0.3 ms to 1.0 s for human red cells, yeast, and brine shrimp using various pulsed gradient NMR methods. Intracellular diffusion coefficients and membrane permeabilities are calculated from these data with the aid of previous theoretical results for regularly spaced permeable(More)
Self diffusion of cell water has been measured at diffusion times ranging form 0.3 ms to 2.4 s for three muscle types of Rana pipiens, using various magnetic field gradient nuclear magnetic resonance methods. Intracellular diffusion coefficients and membrane permeabilities are calculated with the aid of previous theoretical results for regularly spaced(More)
Seagrass species form important marine and estuarine habitats providing valuable ecosystem services and functions. Coastal zones that are increasingly impacted by anthropogenic development have experienced substantial declines in seagrass abundance around the world. Australia, which has some of the world's largest seagrass meadows and is home to over half(More)
While density dependence is a popular topic of research in population ecology, it has received much less attention at the community level. Using 27 years of data from Heron Island, on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, we develop a matrix model of coral community dynamics that shows that community-level density dependence does occur and that it is fairly(More)
Assessing environmental condition is essential for the management of coasts and their resources, but better management decisions occur when large databases are simplified into more manageable units of information. Here we present the habitat structure index (HSI), which enables rapid assessment and direct comparison of seagrass habitat structure using(More)
The limiting quantity in radiation protection for whole body exposures in the United States is currently based on the effective dose equivalent (EDE). Because EDE is computed from the individual organ dose equivalents, it is essentially impossible to measure EDE directly. However, calculated organ dose equivalents, and the resulting EDE, can be correlated(More)
