    Strasser, Carly A.; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Walther, Benjamin D. (Elsevier B.V., 2008-01-30)
    The chemical composition of bivalve shells can reflect that of their environment, making them useful indicators of climate, pollution, and ecosystem changes. However, biological factors can also influence chemical properties ...
  • A guide to laboratory use of the squid Loligo pealei 

    Arnold, John M.; Summers, William C.; Gilbert, Daniel L.; Manalis, Richard S.; Daw, Nigel W.; Lasek, Raymond J. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 1974)
    From the Preface: Unfortunately, a guide like this one does not happen simply. It is the product of polite requests (at first polite, anyway) from colleagues, of mutual nagging, and of wives with persistant memories. ...

  • Gulf of Maine seals - populations, problems and priorities 

    Bogomolni, Andrea L.; Early, Greg A.; Matassa, Keith; Nichols, Owen C.; Sette, Lisa (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
    As pinniped populations shift and change along the northeast U.S. and Canadian coastline, so too do the interests and issues of regional residents, scientists and stakeholders. In May 2009 the Woods Hole Oceanographic ...
  • Gulf Stream recirculation experiment - Part II 

    Wooding, Christine M.; Owens, W. Brechner; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Valdes, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-09)
    This report presents trajectories and time series of velocity, pressure, and temperature for twelve neutrally-buoyant floats launched during the Gulf Stream Recirculation EXperiment (GUSREX) and two from earlier experiments, ...
  • Gulf Stream temperature, salinity and transport during the last millennium 

    Lund, David C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-02)
    Benthic and planktonic foraminiferal δ18O (δ18Oc) from a suite of well-dated, high-resolution cores spanning the depth and width of the Straits of Florida reveal significant changes in Gulf Stream cross-current density ...
  • The gut microbiota of rural Papua New Guineans : composition, diversity patterns, and ecological processes 

    Martinez, Ines; Stegen, James C.; Maldonado-Gomez, Maria X.; Eren, A. Murat; Siba, Peter M.; Greenhill, Andrew R.; Walter, Jens (Cell Press, 2015-04-16)
    Although recent research revealed an impact of westernization on diversity and composition of the human gut microbiota, the exact consequences on metacommunity characteristics are insufficiently understood, and the underlying ...
  • Gut-associated microbial symbionts of the marsh fiddler crab, Uca pugnax 

    Gulmann, Lara K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-09)
    Digestive associations between marine invertebrates and resident (attached) microbial communities may playa critical role in host physiology and involve previously unidentified microbial species. The overarching goal of ...
  • Habitat associations in gastropod species at East Pacific Rise hydrothermal vents (9°50'N) 

    Mills, Susan W.; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Tyler, Paul A. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2007-06)
    At deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the East Pacific Rise (9°50'N), distinct megafaunal assemblages are positioned along strong thermal and chemical gradients. We investigated the distribution of gastropod species to determine ...
  • Habitat associations of juvenile versus adult butterflyfishes 

    Pratchett, Morgan S.; Berumen, Michael L.; Marnane, M. J.; Eagle, J. V.; Pratchett, D. J. (2007-10)
    Many coral reef fishes exhibit distinct ontogenetic shifts in habitat use while some species settle directly in adult habitats, but there is not any general explanation to account for these differences in settlement ...
  • Habitat damage, marine reserves, and the value of spatial management 

    Moeller, Holly V.; Neubert, Michael G. (Ecological Society of America, 2013-07)
    The biological benefits of marine reserves have garnered favor in the conservation community, but “no-take” reserve implementation is complicated by the economic interests of fishery stakeholders. There are now a number ...
