Historical Overfishing and the Recent Collapse of Coastal Ecosystems
Ecological extinction caused by overfishing precedes all other pervasive human disturbance to coastal ecosystems, including pollution, degradation of water quality, and anthropogenic climate change.…
Biological Effects Within No-Take Marine Reserves: A global Synthesis
It is suggested that reserve characteristics and context play key roles in determining the direction and magnitude of the reserve response, validating the potential for well designed and enforced reserves to serve as globally important conservation and management tools.
Global Trajectories of the Long-Term Decline of Coral Reef Ecosystems
Records are compiled, extending back thousands of years, of the status and trends of seven major guilds of carnivores, herbivores, and architectural species from 14 regions that indicate reefs will not survive without immediate protection from human exploitation over large spatial scales.
Environmental Variability Promotes Coexistence in Lottery Competitive Systems
The analysis confirms the view that coexistence can occur in a system where space is allocated largely at random, provided environmental variability is sufficiently great (Sale 1977); but the explanations and predictions differ in detail with those of Sale.
Larval retention and recruitment in an island population of a coral-reef fish
It is shown that recruitment to an island population of a widely distributed coral-reef fish may often result from local retention on leeward reefs, which has implications for fisheries management and marine reserve design.
TRAJECTORIES AND CORRELATES OF COMMUNITY CHANGE IN NO-TAKE MARINE RESERVES
Marine reserves are a spatial approach to marine management and conservation aimed at protecting and restoring multispecies assemblages and the structure and function of marine ecosystems. We used…

The pattern of sexual transformation eventually reached in a population is predictable through the use of a simulation model developed here, which suggests that the authors should see a rather sharp break in age-specific sex ratios in protogynous or protandrous populations.
ECOLOGICAL CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING CANDIDATE SITES FOR MARINE RESERVES
Several schemes have been developed to help select the locations of marine reserves. All of them combine social, economic, and biological criteria, and few offer any guidance as to how to prioritize…
Marine reserves have rapid and lasting effects
Marine reserves are becoming a popular tool for marine conservation and resource management worldwide. In the past, reserves have been created with little understanding of how they actually affect…
