Toward a more comprehensive theory of zooplankton diel vertical migration: Integrating ultraviolet radiation and water transparency into the biotic paradigm
The current prevailing theory of diel vertical migration (DVM) of zooplankton is focused largely on two biotic drivers: food and predation. Yet recent evidence suggests that abiotic drivers such asExpand

Asian copepods on the move: recent invasions in the Columbia–Snake River system, USA
Nine Asian copepod species have been introduced into the Northeast Pacific, seven of which are largely confined to the San Francisco estuary. However, several of these copepods recently invaded theExpand

Recruitment, growth, and diel vertical migration of Euphausia pacifica in a temperate fjord
The pelagic crustacean Euphausia pacifica Hansen was sampled with a multiple-sample 1.0 m2 Tucker trawl and a multiple-sample 1.0 m2 vertical net in Dabob Bay, Washington on 17 dates between May 1985Expand

Mesozooplankton omnivory in the upper San Francisco Estuary
While many studies have examined mesozooplankton feeding in coastal environments, less attention has been given to this subject in estuaries. We used bottle incubation experiments to measure theExpand

Feeding dynamics of larval Pacific herring (Clupea pallasi) on natural prey assemblages: the importance of protists
The role of protists in the diet of larval Pacific herring (Clupea pallasi) was examined in laboratory incubations conducted in May and June 2008 using a natural assemblage of microplankton (10‐200Expand

Voracious planktonic hydroids: unexpected predatory impact on a coastal marine ecosystem
Abstract-Hydroids are typically attached, benthic cnidarians that feed on a variety of small prey. During sampling on Georges Bank in spring 1994, we found huge numbers of hydroids suspended in theExpand

Population biology of euphausiids off northern California and effects of short time-scale wind events on Euphausia pacifica
Variability in upwelling conditions has been shown to change the physical and biolog- ical characteristics of the water over the California shelf, including the population biology of the dominantExpand

Community composition and diet of fishes as a function of tidal channel geomorphology
We examined how channel system order and complexity influence fish community com- position, abundance, and diet, by comparing first- through fourth-order channel systems at China Camp Marsh, SanExpand

Cross-shelf distributions and recruitment of crab postlarvae in a region of strong upwelling
Larvae are thought to be highly vulnerable to offshore transport in productive upwelling regions, which increases cross-shelf and alongshore dispersal, limits recruitment, and reduces the strength ofExpand
