Strontium and barium uptake in aragonitic otoliths of marine fish
Abstract Minor and trace element analyses of fish otoliths (ear stones) may provide a high-resolution reconstruction of temperature histories and trace element compositions of aquatic systems whereExpand
Local Replenishment of Coral Reef Fish Populations in a Marine Reserve
TLDR
If natal homing of larvae is a common life-history strategy, the appropriate spatial scales for the management and conservation of coral reefs are likely to be much smaller than previously assumed. Expand
Otoliths, increments, and elements: keys to a comprehensive understanding of fish populations?
The chronological properties of otoliths are unparalleled in the animal world, allowing accurate estimates of age and growth at both the daily and the yearly scale. Based on the successes ofExpand
Coral Reef Fish Larvae Settle Close to Home
TLDR
The mystery of the natal origin of clownfish juveniles is solved by mass-marking via tetracycline immersion all larvae produced in a population, and parentage is established by DNA genotyping all potential adults and all new recruits arriving in the population. Expand
Factors determining δ13C and δ18O fractionation in aragonitic otoliths of marine fish
Fish otoliths are aragonitic accretions located within the inner ear of teleost fish. The acellular nature of otoliths, along with taxon-specific shapes, chronological growth increments, andExpand
OTOLITH CHEMISTRY TO DESCRIBE MOVEMENTS AND LIFE-HISTORY PARAMETERS OF FISHES : HYPOTHESES, ASSUMPTIONS, LIMITATIONS AND INFERENCES
TLDR
The authors aim to clarify the methods of determining fish movement based on natural and artificial otolith chemical tags and review current trends in determining movement using otolith chemistry, otolith sampling methods, and what influences otolith Chemistry. Expand
Natal homing in a marine fish metapopulation.
TLDR
Using natural geochemical signatures in otoliths to determine natal sources in weakfish, an estuarine-spawning marine fish, in eastern North America, highlights the need for consideration of spatial processes in fisheries models and has implications for the design of marine reserves in coastal regions. Expand
Larval Export from Marine Reserves and the Recruitment Benefit for Fish and Fisheries
TLDR
Using genetic parentage analyses, patterns of larval dispersal for two species of exploited coral reef fish within a network of marine reserves on the Great Barrier Reef are resolved and provide compelling evidence that adequately protected reserve networks can make a significant contribution to the replenishment of populations on both reserve and fished reefs at a scale that benefits local stakeholders. Expand
Larval dispersal connects fish populations in a network of marine protected areas
TLDR
DNA parentage analysis is used to provide the first direct estimates of connectivity of a marine fish, the orange clownfish (Amphiprion percula), in a proposed network of marine reserves in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea, suggesting that MPA networks can function to sustain resident populations both by local replenishment and through larval dispersal from other reserves.

A review of ecogeochemistry approaches to estimating movements of marine animals
Ecogeochemistry—the application of geochemical techniques to fundamental questions in population and community ecology—has been used in animal migration studies in terrestrial environments forExpand
