(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 ...
  • Isolating the hydrodynamic triggers of the dive response in eastern oyster larvae 

    Wheeler, Jeanette D.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Anderson, Erik J.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-05-06)
    Understanding the behavior of larval invertebrates during planktonic and settlement phases remains an open and intriguing problem in larval ecology. Larvae modify their vertical swimming behavior in response to water column ...
  • Isolation and characterization of novel psychrophilic, neutrophilic, Fe-oxidizing, chemolithoautotrophic α- and γ-proteobacteria from the deep sea

  • Isolation and identification of an epibiotic bacterium associated with heterocystous Anabaena cells 

    Stevenson, Bradley S.; Waterbury, John B. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-04)
    Heterotrophic bacteria are commonly found in close associations with photosynthetic cyanobacteria in aquatic ecosystems. Some of these associations can be species-specific and mutualistic, resulting in optimal growth and ...
  • Isolation and phylogeny of novel cytochrome P450 genes from tunicates (Ciona spp.) : a CYP3 line in early deuterostomes? 

    Verslycke, Tim A.; Goldstone, Jared V.; Stegeman, John J. (2006-04-04)
    Cytochromes P450 (CYPs) form a gene superfamily involved in the biotransformation of numerous endogenous and exogenous natural and synthetic compounds. In humans, CYP3A4 is regarded as one of the most important CYPs due ...
  • Juvenile fish assemblages collected on unconsolidated sediments of the southeast United States continental shelf 

    Walsh, Harvey J.; Marancik, Katrin E.; Hare, Jonathan A. (U.S. Department of Commerce, NOAA, 2006)
    Patterns were investigated in juvenile fish use of unconsolidated sediments on the southeast United States continental shelf off Georgia. Juvenile fish and environmental data were sampled at ten stations along a 110-km ...
  • A key to the stromateoid fishes 

    Haedrich, Richard L.; Horn, Michael H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-03)
    Our primary purpose in preparing "A Key to the Stromateoid Fishes" is to provide field workers and curators with a convenient and concise aid for the identification of the diverse species in this somewhat difficult ...
  • A key to the stromateoid fishes 

    Haedrich, Richard L.; Horn, Michael H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-09)
    Our primary purpose in preparing "A Key to the Stromateoid Fishes" is to provide field workers and curators with a convenient and concise aid for the identification of the diverse species in this somewhat difficult group ...
