Shallow population histories in deep evolutionary lineages of marine fishes: insights from sardines and anchovies and lessons for conservation
Most surveys of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in marine fishes reveal low levels of sequence divergence between haplotypes relative to the differentiation observed between sister taxa. It is unclear… Expand

Abstract The distribution of circumtropical marine species is limited by continental boundaries, cold temperate conditions, and oceanic expanses, but some of these barriers are permeable over… Expand
Shallow mtDNA coalescence in Atlantic pygmy angelfishes (genus Centropyge) indicates a recent invasion from the Indian Ocean.
Pygmy angelfishes (genus Centropyge) are widespread and species-rich in the Indo-Pacific, but only three species are recognized in the Atlantic: Centropyge resplendens on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge,… Expand
The Monotypic Sardines, Sardina and Sardinops: Their Taxonomy, Distribution, Stock Structure, and Zoogeography
This paper reviews the taxonomy, distribution, stock structure, biochemical genetics and zoogeography of the world's two subtropical sardines, Sardina and Sardinops. We conclude that both genera are… Expand
PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE SARDINES (SARDINOPS SPP.): ASSESSING BIOGEOGRAPHIC MODELS AND POPULATION HISTORIES IN TEMPERATE UPWELLING ZONES
Sardines (Sardinops spp.) occupy temperate upwelling zones in the coastal regions of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, including locations in Japan, California, Chile, Australia, and South Africa. East… Expand
REPRODUCTIVE STRATEGIES OF EELGRASS (ZOSTERA MARINA L.)
Abstract Geographic variation in the reproductive strategy of eelgrass on the Pacific coast of North America is reflected in differences in flowering frequency, seed production and the effects of… Expand
Mixed‐stock analysis reveals the migrations of juvenile hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) in the Caribbean Sea
Hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) migrate between nesting beaches and feeding habitats that are often associated with tropical reefs, but it is uncertain which nesting colonies supply which… Expand
Recording Devices on Free‐Ranging Marine Animals: Does Measurement Affect Foraging Performance?
Observations of foraging patterns are essential to understanding the energetic ecology of marine animals. However, direct observations are not often feasible in the field because most foraging takes… Expand

Sequence mismatch analysis (MMA) and Bayesian skyline plots (BSP) are commonly used to reconstruct historical demography. A survey of 173 research articles (2009-2014), which included estimates of… Expand
Characterizing diversity in salmon from the Pacific Northwest
Information developed during recently completed evaluations of the status of seven species of anadromous Pacific salmonids (Oncorhynchus spp.) in the Pacific Northwest was used to characterize… Expand
