The ctenophore Mnemiopsis in native and exotic habitats: U.S. estuaries versus the Black Sea basin
The native habitats of the ctenophore, Mnemiopsis, are temperate to subtropical estuaries along the Atlantic coast of North and South America, where it is found in an extremely wide range ofExpand

Effects of climate on relative predation by scyphomedusae and ctenophores on copepods in Chesapeake Bay during 1987-2000
The mesohaline region of Chesapeake Bay had high densities of the scyphomedusan Chrysaora quinquecirrha and low densities of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi in 1987-1990 and 1995. By contrast,Expand

Resource allocation in breeding seabirds: responses to fluctuations in their food supply
In the vicinity of the Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea, abundance of food available to surface-foraging seabirds was greater during the chick-rearing period in 1988 than in 1987, whereas abundanceExpand

Is global ocean sprawl a cause of jellyfish blooms
Jellyfish (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) blooms appear to be increasing in both intensity and frequency in many coastal areas worldwide, due to multiple hypothesized anthropogenic stressors. Here, we proposeExpand

Rise and fall of jellyfish in the eastern Bering Sea in relation to climate regime shifts
A steep increase in jellyfish biomass, primarily Chrysaora melanaster, over the eastern Bering Sea shelf was documented throughout the 1990s. Their biomass peaked in summer 2000 and then declinedExpand

Recurrent jellyfish blooms are a consequence of global oscillations
A perceived recent increase in global jellyfish abundance has been portrayed as a symptom of degraded oceans. This perception is based primarily on a few case studies and anecdotal evidence, but aExpand

Predicting the distribution of the scyphomedusa Chrysaora quinquecirrha in Chesapeake Bay
Jellyfish blooms are important events controlling plankton dynamics in coastal waters worldwide, yet factors that influence bloom development are not well understood. We used the scyphomedusaExpand

Effects of low dissolved oxygen on zooplankton predation by the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi
The occurrence of low dissolved oxygen (DO), caused by vertical stratification and excess nutrient inputs, is an important and widely occurring physical feature in aquatic systems. Because someExpand

Effects of low dissolved oxygen on survival and asexual reproduction of scyphozoan polyps (Chrysaora quinquecirrha)
Hypoxic conditions are common in many coastal environments such as Chesapeake Bay. While medusae appear to be quite tolerant of low dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations, the effects of hypoxia on theExpand
