The Order Lamniformes consists of seven families and 15 species. This remarkably varied morphological and ecological group of sharks includes filter feeders, deep-waters species, open-ocean and coastal species, as well as eight endothermic species. Age and growth rates for salmon sharks (Lanina ditropis) in the eastern North Pacific (ENP) were estimated from seasonally formed bands in the vertebrae, and compared to previously published life history parameters for this species from the western… Expand
Age and growth of the scalloped hammerhead shark, Sphyrna lewini, in the north-west Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
Growth estimates suggest slower growth than populations in the Pacific Ocean but faster growth than previously reported in the Gulf of Mexico, and Bowker’s test of symmetry and Index of Average Per Cent Error suggests that the ageing method represents a non-biased and precise approach to the age assessment. Expand
Age, growth and maturity of the roundel skate, Raja texana, from the Gulf of Mexico, USA
TLDR
Age-bias plots and coefficient of variation suggested that the ageing method represents a non-biased and precise approach to age assessment, and marginal increment and edge analyses suggested that growth bands are formed annually with a distinct trend of increasing growth at the beginning of March.

Age and growth of the great hammerhead shark, Sphyrna mokarran, in the north-western Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
This study is the first to provide vertebral ages for great hammerheads, which have one of the oldest reported ages for any elasmobranch but grow at relatively similar rates to other large hammerhead species from this region. Expand
Age, growth, and demography of the sandbar shark, Carcharhinus plumbeus, over temporal and spatial scales
Numbers of sandbar sharks, Carcharhinus plumbeus, in the Northwest Atlantic have experienced drastic declines since the early 1980's reaching their minima during the early 1990's. Catch rates in theExpand
Age and growth of the smooth hammerhead, Sphyrna zygaena, in the Atlantic Ocean: comparison with other hammerhead species
TLDR
This study adds to knowledge of the vital life-history parameters of smooth hammerheads in the Atlantic Ocean, which can be used in the management and conservation of this species. Expand
Age, growth, and maturity of the whitebrow skate, Bathyraja minispinosa, from the eastern Bering Sea
TLDR
The study is the first to investigate the age, growth, and age at maturity of Bathyraja minispinosa, a common bycatch in groundfish fisheries in the Bering Sea, and indicates that size may not be a reliable method of estimating the vulnerability of a rajid species to population declines in the eastern North Pacific.

Reproductive philopatry in a coastal shark drives age-related population structure
TLDR
The results highlight the need to target young-of-the-year sharks when investigating reproductive philopatry to exclude roaming individuals that obscure size-related signals of genetic differentiation and recommend protected areas, or time-area closures, prohibiting exploitation in the nursery areas during pupping season.

Maximum age and missing time in the vertebrae of sandtigershark(Carchariastaurus):validatedlifespan from bomb radiocarbon dating in the western North Atlantic and southwestern Indian Oceans
Bomb radiocarbon analysis of vertebral growth bands was used to validate lifespan for sand tiger sharks (Carcharias taurus) from the western North Atlantic (WNA) and southwestern Indian Oceans (SIO).Expand
Demographic analyses of the dusky shark, Carcharhinus obscurus, in the Northwest Atlantic incorporating hooking mortality estimates and revised reproductive parameters
TLDR
Demographic analyses showed that the dusky shark population would decline even at low levels of fishing mortality despite low natural mortality for neonates, and suggest stringent regulatory measures may be required to recover collapsed populations. Expand
Age and growth estimates for the smooth skate, Malacoraja senta, in the Gulf of Maine
TLDR
Age and growth estimates for the smooth skate, Malacoraja senta, were derived from 306 vertebral centra from skates caught in the North Atlantic off the coast of New Hampshire and Massachusetts, USA and male and female growth diverged at both ends of the data range. Expand
