The impacts of climate change in coastal marine systems.
Anthropogenically induced global climate change has profound implications for marine ecosystems and the economic and social systems that depend upon them. The relationship between temperature andExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the brachyuran crab superfamily Majoidea indicates close congruence with trees based on larval morphology.
In this study, we constructed the first molecular phylogeny of the diverse crab superfamily Majoidea (Decapoda: Pleocyemata: Brachyura), using three loci (16S, COI, and 28S) from 37 majoid species.Expand

Predator diversity strengthens trophic cascades in kelp forests by modifying herbivore behaviour.
Although human-mediated extinctions disproportionately affect higher trophic levels, the ecosystem consequences of declining diversity are best known for plants and herbivores. We combined fieldExpand

Ecological Factors Affecting Community Invasibility
What makes a community invasible? For over a century ecologists have sought to understand the relative importance of biotic and abiotic factors that determine community composition. The fact that weExpand

Evolution of Decoration in Majoid Crabs: A Comparative Phylogenetic Analysis of the Role of Body Size and Alternative Defensive Strategies
Although experimental studies have demonstrated the antipredatory advantages of camouflage and its associated costs, few studies have examined the evolution of camouflage in a phylogenetic context.Expand

Alternative camouflage strategies mediate predation risk among closely related co-occurring kelp crabs
Although camouflage is a common predator defense strategy across a wide variety of organisms, direct tests of the adaptive and ecological consequences of camouflage are rare. In this study, weExpand

Phylogenetic relationships within the snapping shrimp genus Synalpheus (Decapoda: Alpheidae).
The snapping shrimp genus Synalpheus (Alpheidae) is one of the most speciose decapod genera, with over 160 described species worldwide. Most species live in symbiotic relationships with other marineExpand

Bopyrid parasite infestation affects activity levels and morphology of the eusocial snapping shrimp Synalpheus elizabethae
Sponge-dwelling snapping shrimps are often more heavily parasitized by bopyrid isopods than their free-living relatives, but little is known about how parasitism influences the be havior andExpand
