  • Morris, James A.; Carman, Mary R. (2012-04)
    The invasive colonial tunicate Didemnum vexillum is now widespread in coastal and offshore waters of New England, USA. D. vexillum can inflict ecological and economic damage through biofouling and habitat modification. ...
  • McLellan, Tracy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-05)
    Osteology and myology of the head of 21 species of macrourids and two closely related species are described. A general model of the mechanics of the macrourid head during feeding has been developed based on the ...
  • Whalen, Kristen E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
    Understanding how organisms deal with potentially toxic or fitness-reducing allelochemicals is important for understanding patterns of predation and herbivory in the marine environment. The ability of marine consumers ...
  • McMahon, Kelton W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-02)
    The ecological integrity of tropical habitats, including mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs, is coming under increasing pressure from human activities. Many coral reef fish species are thought to use mangroves and ...
  • Martins, Claudia A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) is a human intoxication associated with the consumption of shellfish contaminated with a family of neurotoxins called saxitoxins. Many species in the dinoflagellate genus Alexandrium ...
  • Blythe, Jonathan N.; Lea, David W. (National Shellfisheries Association, 2008-04)
    A mussel's shell records its history of growth. We investigated variability in the size and shape of mussel shells of Mytilus californianus Conrad (1837) to test the hypothesis that the mussel shell provides information ...

    A strong foundation of basic and applied research documents that the estuarine fish Fundulus heteroclitus and related species are unique laboratory and field models for understanding how individuals and populations interact ...
  • Taviani, Marco; Angeletti, L.; Ceregato, A.; Foglini, F.; Froglia, C.; Trincardi, F. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-07-12)
    The geo-biological exploration of a pockmark field located at ca. 800 m below sea level in the Gela basin (Strait of Sicily, Central Mediterranean) provided a relatively diverse chemosymbiotic community and methane-imprinted ...
  • Boissonneault, Katie Rose (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-09)
    Toxic algae are a growing concern in the marine environment. One unique marine diatom, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle, produces the the neurotoxin domoic acid, which is the cause of amnesic shellfish poisoning. ...
  • Tarrant, Ann M.; Franks, Diana G.; Verslycke, Tim A. (National Shellfisheries Association, 2012-06)
    Epizootic shell disease (ESD) has been reported widely in American lobster (Homarus americanus, Milne Edwards) in southern New England. The appearance of irregular, deep lesions—characteristic of ESD—has been associated ...
  • Baumgartner, Mark F.; Mussoline, Sarah E. (Acoustical Society of America, 2011-05)
    Passive acoustic monitoring allows the assessment of marine mammal occurrence and distribution at greater temporal and spatial scales than is now possible with traditional visual surveys. However, the large volume of ...
  • Howard, Gregory J.; Schlezinger, Jennifer J.; Hahn, Mark E.; Webster, Thomas F. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009-12-22)
    Background: Predicting the expected outcome of a combination exposure is critical to risk -assessment. The toxic equivalency factor (TEF) approach used for analyzing joint effects of dioxin-like chemicals is a special case ...
  • Jackson, Christopher R.; da Silva, Jose C. B.; Jeans, Gus (The Oceanography Society, 2012-06)
    Nonlinear internal waves are found in many parts of the world ocean. Their widespread distribution is a result of their origin in the barotropic tide and in the variety of ways they can be generated, including by lee waves, ...
  • Ferguson, Edwin Louis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-05)
    The cell lineages of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegana are essentially invariant among individuals. We have begun an attempt to understand the genetic specification of one particular cell lineage, that of the hermaphrodite ...
  • Brand, Larry E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-01)
    The acclimated asexual reproduction rates of many clones of Emiliania huxleyi (82), Gephrocapsa oceanica (19), Cyclococcolithina leptopora (31), Prorocentrum micans (28), Dissodinium lunula (22), Thoracosphaera heimi ...
