Understanding impacts of fisheries bycatch on marine megafauna
Hunting by humans played a major role in extirpating terrestrial megafauna on several continents and megafaunal loss continues today in both terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Recent declines ofExpand

Larval Size and Recruitment Mechanisms in Fishes: Toward a Conceptual Framework
Understanding the mechanisms controlling recruitment in fishes is a major problem in fisheries science. Although the literature on recruitment mechanisms is large and growing rapidly, it is primari...

A Stage‐Based Population Model for Loggerhead Sea Turtles and Implications for Conservation
Management of many species is currently based on an inadequate under- standing of their population dynamics. Lack of age-specific demographic information, particularly for long-lived iteroparousExpand

Quantifying the effects of fisheries on threatened species: the impact of pelagic longlines on loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles
The depletion of fish stocks from global fisheries has been a long-standing concern. More recently, incidental catch of non-target (termed bycatch) vertebrates also has been proposed as a seriousExpand

Temperature as an Ecological Resource
synopsis. Ectothermic vertebrates respond to the temperature of their habitat in a manner that is remarkably similar to their response to more traditional ecological resources such as food. We reviewExpand

Habitat structural complexity and the interaction between bluegills and their prey
Structural complexity of the habitat often reduces predatory efficiency by reducing prey capture rates. Prey density is often positively correlated with habitat structure because it pro- vides foodExpand

Global patterns of marine turtle bycatch
Fisheries bycatch is a primary driver of population declines in several species of marine megafauna (e.g., elasmobranchs, mammals, seabirds, turtles). Characterizing the global bycatch seascape usingExpand

An index to assess the health and benefits of the global ocean
The ocean plays a critical role in supporting human well-being, from providing food, livelihoods and recreational opportunities to regulating the global climate. Sustainable management aimed atExpand

Managing for cumulative impacts in ecosystem-based management through ocean zoning
Multiple activities affect the marine environment in concert, yet current management primarily considers activities in isolation. A shift towards a more comprehensive management of these activities,Expand
