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. Expand
Evidence of self-recruitment in demersal marine populations
The mounting evidence in support of self-recruitment dynamics indicates a pressing need for a reevaluation of the appropriateness of demographically-open population models and their applicability to the management and conservation of marine ecosystems. Expand
Quantifying larval retention and connectivity in marine populations with artificial and natural markers
An approach that combines two or more techniques will likely be necessary to quantify larval retention and connectivity over appropriate spatio-temporal scales, and where possible, such a multi-technique strategy should include both artificial and natural tags. Expand
In situ Sr-isotope analysis of carbonates by LA-MC-ICP-MS: interference corrections, high spatial resolution and an example from otolith studies
In situ Sr-isotope analysis by laser ablation multi-collector ICP-MS is a potentially powerful tracer technique with widespread application to many fields of study. The usefulness of the method,Expand
Social Control of Sex Change in the Bluehead Wrasse, Thalassoma bifasciatum (Pisces: Labridae).
It is shown that removal of large terminal color phase males from local populations leads to sex and color change in the largest initial color phase females, and that mature sperm can be produced in as little as eight days after the initiation of sex change. Expand
A comparison of two survey methods: differences between underwater visual census and baited remote underwater video
UVC will likely provide a more complete estimate of temperate reef fish diversity than BRUV and is likely to apply multiple methods when logistical or financial constraints limit biodiversity studies to only 1 method. Expand
Spatio-temporal and interspecific variation in otolith trace-elemental fingerprints in a temperate estuarine fish assemblage
Otolith elemental fingerprinting can be a useful tool for inferring estuarine residency, but such fingerprints may be temporally variable and species specific. Expand
Phenotype-environment mismatches reduce connectivity in the sea.
It is argued that selection will bias survival against exogenous colonizers and phenotype-environment mismatches represent an important barrier to connectivity in the sea, and may operate independently of distance and have the potential to explain the counterintuitive patterns of connectivity often seen in marine environments. Expand
Larval quality is shaped by matrix effects: implications for connectivity in a marine metapopulation.
It is determined that larval quality of F. lapillum is a function of larval dispersal history and not source population identity, and conditions in the pelagic larval environment shape larvalquality and potentially mediate metapopulation connectivity. Expand
Life history, pathology, and description of Kudoa ovivora n. sp. (Myxozoa, Myxosporea): an ovarian parasite of Caribbean labroid fishes.
Kudoa ovivora may not require an intermediate host because fishes fed infected tissue developed more infections than unfed fish, and may provide new insights on the costs/benefits of sex change. Expand
