Oxygen minimum zone Benthos: Adaptation and community response to hypoxia
Mid-water oxygen minima (� 0.5 ml l � 1 dissolved O2) intercept the continental margins along much of the eastern Pacific Ocean, off west Africa and in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, creatingExpand

Global distribution of naturally occurring marine hypoxia on continental margins
Hypoxia in the ocean influences biogeochemical cycling of elements, the distribution of marine species and the economic well being of many coastal countries. Previous delineations of hypoxicExpand

High-Frequency Dynamics of Ocean pH: A Multi-Ecosystem Comparison
The effect of Ocean Acidification (OA) on marine biota is quasi-predictable at best. While perturbation studies, in the form of incubations under elevated pCO2, reveal sensitivities and responses ofExpand

ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES ON REGIONAL DEEP-SEA SPECIES DIVERSITY
Most of our knowledge of biodiversity and its causes in the deep-sea benthos derives from regional-scale sampling studies of the macrofauna. Improved sampling methods and the expansion ofExpand

Dynamics and distribution of natural and human-caused hypoxia
Abstract. Water masses can become undersaturated with oxygen when natural processes alone or in combination with anthropogenic processes produce enough organic carbon that is aerobically decomposedExpand

ECOLOGY OF COLD SEEP SEDIMENTS: INTERACTIONS OF FAUNA WITH FLOW, CHEMISTRY AND MICROBES
Cold seeps occur in geologically active and passive continental margins, where pore waters enriched in methane are forced upward through the sediments by pressure gradients. The advective supply ofExpand

  • 29 March 2006
Larvae have been difficult to study because their small size limits our ability to understand their behavior and the conditions they experience. Questions about larval transport focus largely on (a)Expand

Coastal hypoxia and sediment biogeochemistry
The intensity, duration and frequency of coastal hypoxia (oxygen concentration <63µM) are increasing due to human alteration of coastal ecosystems and changes in oceanographic conditions due toExpand

Effects of natural and human-induced hypoxia on coastal benthos
Abstract. Coastal hypoxia (defined here as Hypoxia alters both the structure and function of benthic communities, but effects may differ with regional hypoxia history. Human-caused hypoxia isExpand

Declining oxygen in the global ocean and coastal waters
Beneath the waves, oxygen disappears As plastic waste pollutes the oceans and fish stocks decline, unseen below the surface another problem grows: deoxygenation. Breitburg et al. review the evidenceExpand
