Rapid Assessment Survey for Exotic Organisms in Southern California Bays and Harbors, and Abundance in Port and Non-port Areas
TLDR
A Rapid Assessment Survey of selected habitat types in sheltered waters between San Diego and Oxnard was conducted in the summer of 2000, finding the numbers and proportions of exotic taxa were not significantly greater in port areas than in non-port areas. Expand
No‐take Reserve Networks: Sustaining Fishery Populations and Marine Ecosystems
Abstract Improved management approaches are needed to reduce the rate at which humans are depleting exploited marine populations and degrading marine ecosystems. Networks of no-take marine reservesExpand
Relationships between irradiance and photosynthesis for marine benthic green algae (Chlorophyta) of differing morphologies
TLDR
Regression equations describing light-limited photosynthetic rates and the relative magnitudes of the maximal net Photosynthesis-irradiance responses both strongly suggested a relationship with seaweed morphology. Expand
Factors influencing food choice by the seaweed-eating marine snail Norrisianorrisi (Trochidae)
TLDR
The data suggest that the preference of N. norrisi for kelps over other potentially edible and palatable seaweeds may not be related to nutritional content, but instead may have evolved in response to factors such as availability, habitat provision, or refuge from predation. Expand
Impact of sewage on the distribution, abundance and community structure of rocky intertidal macro-organisms
TLDR
The biological effects of a low-volume domestic sewage discharge were studied near Wilson Cove, San Clemente Island, California, from February to June, 1972, and a critical effect of the outfall may be to decrease environmental stability thereby favoring rapid-colonizers and more sewage-tolerant organisms.

Ecological impacts on the limpet Lottia gigantea populations: human pressure over a broad scale on island and mainland intertidal zones
TLDR
It is concluded that the degree of enforcement against poaching is the better predictor of limpet size structure than proximity to population centers or visitation to intertidal sites. Expand
A FORENSIC AND PHYLOGENETIC SURVEY OF CAULERPA SPECIES (CAULERPALES, CHLOROPHYTA) FROM THE FLORIDA COAST, LOCAL AQUARIUM SHOPS, AND E‐COMMERCE: ESTABLISHING A PROACTIVE BASELINE FOR EARLY DETECTION 1
TLDR
The addition of the Florida region to the genetic data base for Caulerpa provides a valuable proactive resource for invasion biologists as well as researchers interested in the evolution and speciation of C Faulerpa. Expand
Variation in owl limpet Lottia gigantea population structures, growth rates, and gonadal production on southern California rocky shores
TLDR
Given the age of larger limpets and the potential for collectors to remove larger individuals and shift populations towards smaller size structures, effective MPAs may take decades to reverse the effects of human impacts on L. gigantea populations in southern California. Expand
HUMAN VISITATION AND THE FREQUENCY AND POTENTIAL EFFECTS OF COLLECTING ON ROCKY INTERTIDAL POPULATIONS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA MARINE RESERVES
Humans intensely use southern California rocky shores for recreational activities such as fishing, exploration, wallung, enjoyment of the out-of-doors, and educational field trips. People alsoExpand
Monitoring Rocky Shores
Monitoring changes in the intertidal zone of rocky shores has never been more critical. This sensitive habitat at the interface of land and ocean may well be the marine equivalent of the canary in aExpand
