Aquatic ecotoxicology of fluoxetine.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the magnitude, duration and frequency of fluoxetine exposure in aquatic systems requires further investigation and mechanistic toxicity of fluxetine in non-target biota, including behavioral responses, are clearly not understood. Expand
Ecology of mesophotic coral reefs
TLDR
Understanding the ecology of mesophotic coral reefs, and the connectivity between them and their shallow water counterparts, should be a primary focus of future reef studies as the worldwide degradation of shallow coral reefs and the ecosystem services they provide, continues. Expand
Photoacclimatization by the coral Montastraea cavernosa in the mesophotic zone: light, food, and genetics.
TLDR
Measurements suggest that there is strong selection for zooxanthellae that are suited for survival in the light-limited environment where mesophotic M. cavernosa are occurring and suggest that the light environment is an important component of the productivity, physiology, and ecology of corals. Expand
Waterborne and sediment toxicity of fluoxetine to select organisms.
TLDR
Findings indicate that lowest measured fluoxetine effect levels are an order of magnitude higher than highest reported municipal effluent concentrations. Expand
Phase shift to algal dominated communities at mesophotic depths associated with lionfish (Pterois volitans) invasion on a Bahamian coral reef
TLDR
The significant ecological effects of the lionfish invasion into mesophotic depths of coral reefs casts doubt on whether these communities have the resilience to recover themselves or contribute to the recovery of their shallow water counterparts as refugia for key coral reef taxa. Expand
Reproductive Assessment of Japanese Medaka (Oryzias latipes) Following a Four-Week Fluoxetine (SSRI) Exposure
TLDR
This study provides novel information on fish biochemical, physiological, and reproduction responses to environmentally realistic fluoxetine concentrations to determine its potential to disrupt teleost reproductive function. Expand
Chemical defenses in Antarctic soft corals: evidence for antifouling compounds
TLDR
Results suggest that both A. paessleri and G. antarctica, which do not appear to be fouled in the field, possess bioactive compounds with antifoulant activity, in contrast to C. frankliniana, which is often heavily fouled, which appears to lack antifouling compounds. Expand
Connectivity and stability of mesophotic coral reefs
TLDR
The connectivity and trophic relationships between the shallow and mesophotic coral reefs, the potential role of MCEs as refugia, and the effects of a new biological invader are reviewed to expose critical gaps in the understanding of the stability of these ecosystems. Expand
Identification of the major brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus) allergen as the muscle protein tropomyosin.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that tropomyosin is the major shrimp allergen, although the amino acid sequence of this shrimp muscle protein shares considerable homology with Tropomyosins of other species including man, significant differences remain in allergenic activity. Expand
Growth and production of Sterechinus neumayeri (Echinoidea: Echinodermata) in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica
TLDR
Growth functions based on natural growth bands indicated differences among stations but showed S. neumayeri to be a slow growing species, reaching its maximum diameter of 70 mm at an age of about 40 yr. Expand
