Microhabitat use, trophic patterns, and the evolution of brain structure in African cichlids.
A close relationship is reported between the relative sizes of various brain structures and variables related to the utilization of habitat and prey and how the nervous system functions under various environmental conditions and how it has responded to natural selection. Expand
Hurricane Allen's Impact on Jamaican Coral Reefs.
Immediate studies were made at Discovery Bay, where reef populations were already known in some detail, and data collected over succeeding weeks showed striking differences in the ability of organisms to heal and survive. Expand
Revealing the Appetite of the Marine Aquarium Fish Trade: The Volume and Biodiversity of Fish Imported into the United States
This is the first study of aquarium trade imports to compare commercial invoices to government forms and provides a means to, routinely and in real time, examine the biodiversity of the trade in coral reef wildlife species. Expand
Caribbean Corals in Crisis: Record Thermal Stress, Bleaching, and Mortality in 2005
Comparison of satellite data against field surveys demonstrated a significant predictive relationship between accumulated heat stress (measured using NOAA Coral Reef Watch's Degree Heating Weeks) and bleaching intensity. Expand
Rhodolith Beds Are Major CaCO3 Bio-Factories in the Tropical South West Atlantic
These gigantic rhodolith beds, of areal extent equivalent to the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, are a critical, yet poorly understood component of the tropical South Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Species-specific patterns of hyperostosis in marine teleost fishes
The occurrence of swollen or hyperostotic bones in skeletal preparations, preserved museum material or whole fresh specimens of marine teleost fishes was identified in 92 species belonging to 22 families, suggesting that these fishes have a spatial juxtaposition of cellular and acellular bone tissues in adjacent and often serially homologous bone sites.

Biodiversity and Fishery Sustainability in the Lake Victoria Basin: An Unexpected Marriage?
Abstract Lake Victoria is Africa's single most important source of inland fishery production. After it was initially fished down in the first half of the 20th century, Lake Victoria became home to aExpand
