Climate Change, Human Impacts, and the Resilience of Coral Reefs
TLDR
International integration of management strategies that support reef resilience need to be vigorously implemented, and complemented by strong policy decisions to reduce the rate of global warming. Expand
POPULATION GENETICS, DEMOGRAPHIC CONNECTIVITY, AND THE DESIGN OF MARINE RESERVES
TLDR
Simulations of one-dimensional stepping stone populations with particular larval dispersal regimes shows that isolation by distance is most obvious when comparing populations separated by 2-5 times the mean larval disperseal distance. Expand
Genetic Divergence, Reproductive Isolation, and Marine Speciation
TLDR
Such studies show how a focus on the physiology, ecology, or sensory biology of reproductive isolation can help uncover the influence of particular genetic changes on reproductive isolation for marine (or terrestrial) taxa. Expand
Body size, metabolic rate, generation time, and the molecular clock.
TLDR
Reconsideration of the generation time hypothesis to include physiological effects such as metabolic rate improves the theoretical underpinnings of molecular evolution. Expand
Response to Comments on "Impacts of Biodiversity Loss on Ocean Ecosystem Services"
TLDR
It is shown that globally declining fisheries catch trends cannot be explained by random processes and are consistent with declining stock abundance trends, and may provide a benchmark against which to assess the effectiveness of conservation measures. Expand
Rebuilding Global Fisheries
TLDR
Current trends in world fisheries are analyzed from a fisheries and conservation perspective, finding that 63% of assessed fish stocks worldwide still require rebuilding, and even lower exploitation rates are needed to reverse the collapse of vulnerable species. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA and two perspectives on evolutionary genetics
This essay reviews comparative studies of animal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), with emphasis on findings made and ideas developed at Berkeley. It argues that such studies are bringing together twoExpand
Genomic basis for coral resilience to climate change
TLDR
This study compares transcriptome-wide gene expression among conspecific thermally sensitive and thermally resilient corals to identify the molecular pathways contributing to coral resilience and proposes that constitutive frontloading enables an individual to maintain physiological resilience during frequently encountered environmental stress.
