Finelli, Christopher; Pawlik, Joseph; McMurray, Steven (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: email@example.com, 2017-03-27)Benthic suspension feeders are an important component of aquatic ecosystems, as they mediate benthic-pelagic coupling and the flow of energy and nutrients. There is increasing evidence that sponges are particularly important ...
Giles, Emily C.; Saenz-Agudelo, Pablo; Berumen, Michael L.; Ravasi, Timothy (Springer, 2013-04-04)Despite the ubiquitous role sponges play in reef ecosystem dynamics, little is known about population-level connectivity in these organisms. The general field of population genetics in sponges remains in its infancy. To ...
The relationship between silicon isotope fractionation in sponges and silicic acid concentration : modern and core-top studies of biogenic opal Hendry, Katharine R.; Robinson, Laura F. (2011-11-14)Recent work has shown the silicon isotope composition, denoted by δ30Si, of deep-sea sponges reflects the concentration of ambient silicic acid (Si(OH)4) in seawater. However, existing calibrations are based predominantly ...
