Pinnipeds and El Niño : responses to environmental stress

  title={Pinnipeds and El Ni{\~n}o : responses to environmental stress},
  author={Fritz Trillmich and Kathryn A. Ono},
El Nino is a meteorological and oceanographic phenomenon, which occurs at irregular intervals in the eastern tropical Pacific. Its most obvious characteristic is the warming of surface waters, which causes enormous disturbances of the marine environment. A severe Nino may also affect continental systems worldwide. This book examines the information available on the effects of the exceptionally strong 1982-83 Nino on a group of marine mammals, the pinnipeds. It presents an analysis of the… 
Vulnerability of South American Pinnipeds Under El Niño Southern Oscillation Events
The fur seal and sea lions, as well as other marine vertebrates along the Peruvian coast, were truly the eyewitness of cyclic events of global changes in the Pacific Ocean during El Niño Southern
Ecosystem monitoring are seals a potential tool for monitoring change in marine systems
INTRODUCTION Marine ecosystems are vast and complex biological networks, which are dynamic in structure at a range of spatial and temporal scales (Nicol et al. 2000). The dynamic activity of these
Peruvian Fur Seals as Archivists of El Niño Southern Oscillation Effects
Peru’s coastal waters are characterized by significant environmental fluctuation due to periodic El Niño- La Niña- Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. This variability results in ecosystem-wide food
Marine mammal occurrence and ocean climate off central California, 1986 to 1994 and 1997 to 1999
An analysis of the occurrence patterns of marine mammals in the central CCS and relate these patterns to changing ocean climate and prey availability.
Marine mammals as ecosystem sentinels
Abstract The earth's climate is changing, possibly at an unprecedented rate. Overall, the planet is warming, sea ice and glaciers are in retreat, sea level is rising, and pollutants are accumulating
Ecological linkages: Marine and estuarine ecosystemsof Central and Northern California
Three of California’s four National Marine Sanctuaries, Cordell Bank, Gulf of the Farallones, and Monterey Bay, are currently undergoing a comprehensive management plan review. As part of this
Do El Niño events beget generations of reproductively deficient adults?
The blue-footed booby appears to be immune to the expected developmental impact of El Niño on the reproductive value of adult generations, and there was evidence that this resilience was supported by two mechanisms of quality control ofadult generations from El Niño years.
