Effects of physical trawling disturbance in a previously unfished sheltered Scottish sea loch
The effects of trawling disturbance on a benthic community were investigated with a manipulative field experiment in a fine muddy habitat that has been closed to fishing for over 25 yr. We examinedExpand
Population and feeding responses of the corallivorous pufferfish Arothron meleagris to coral mortality in the eastern Pacific
Arothron meleagris occurs at densities r a n g n g from 0 to 320 fish ha-' of live coral on eastern Pacific coral reefs of Costa h c a , Panama, Colombia and the Galapagos Islands. On reefs in PanamaExpand
Thermal avoidance during flight in the locust Locusta migratoria
In this paper, thermal avoidance in tethered flying locusts is described for the first time. Changes in body posture examined using high-speed cinematography revealed that the animals responded to aExpand
Patterns of recolonisation and the importance of pit-digging by the crab Cancer pagurus in a subtidal sand habitat
The nature and level of disturbance to a benthic community caused by the pit-digging activities of the crab Cancer payurus were examined in a shallow sub-tidal sand habitat on the west coast ofExpand
Fish Feces as Fish Food on a Pacific Coral Reef
The fates of 5,975 feces produced by 88 species of reef fishes were monitored at Palau (western Pacific Ocean). At least 4 5 fishes ate fish feces in addition to other foods. Intraspecific coprophagyExpand
Phylogeny of the bee genus Lasioglossum ( Hymenoptera : Halictidae ) based on mitochondrial COI sequence data
The bee genus Lasioglossum Curtis is a model taxon for studying the evolutionary origins of and reversals in eusociality. This paper presents a phylogenetic analysis of Lasioglossum species andExpand
Aggregation and dispersion of female New Zealand sea lions at the Sandy Bay breeding colony, Auckland Islands: How unusual is their spatial behaviour?
We investigated the spatial behaviour adopted by female New Zealand sea lions, Phocarctos hookeri, at the Sandy Bay breeding colony in 2002 and 2003. Each breeding female exhibited a spatio-temporalExpand
Incidence of the pinewood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophlius Steiner & Buhrer, 1934 (Nickle, 1970) in Spain
The pine wood nematode (PWN) Bursaphelenchus xylophilus Steiner & Buhrer, 1934 (Nickle, 1970), is a pathogenic species in the genus Bursaphelenchus Fuchs, 1937. The introduction and establishment ofExpand
