    Duarte, Carlos M.; Pitt, Kylie A.; Lucas, Cathy H.; Purcell, Jennifer E.; Uye, Shin-Ichi; Robinson, Kelly L.; Brotz, Lucas; Decker, Mary Beth; Sutherland, Kelly R.; Malej, Alenka; Madin, Laurence P.; Mianzan, Hermes; Gili, Josep-Maria; Fuentes, Veronica; Atienza, Dacha; Pages, Francesc; Breitburg, Denise; Malek, Jennafer; Graham, William M.; Condon, Robert H. (Ecological Society of America, 2012-09-07)
    Jellyfish (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) blooms appear to be increasing in both intensity and frequency in many coastal areas worldwide, due to multiple hypothesized anthropogenic stressors. Here, we propose that the proliferation ...

    The Jellyfish Database Initiative (JeDI) is a scientifically-coordinated global database dedicated to gelatinous zooplankton (members of the Cnidaria, Ctenophora and Thaliacea) and associated environmental data. The database ...
  • Linking human well-being and jellyfish : ecosystem services, impacts, and societal responses 

    Graham, William M.; Gelcich, Stefan; Robinson, Kelly L.; Duarte, Carlos M.; Brotz, Lucas; Purcell, Jennifer E.; Madin, Laurence P.; Mianzan, Hermes; Sutherland, Kelly R.; Uye, Shin-Ichi; Pitt, Kylie A.; Lucas, Cathy H.; Bogeberg, Molly; Brodeur, Richard D.; Condon, Robert H.
