  • Podar, Mircea; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Huang, Hon-Ren; Perlman, Philip S.; Sogin, Mitchell L. (American Society for Microbiology, 2002-12)
    Group II introns are catalytic RNAs and mobile retrotransposable elements known to be present in the genomes of some nonmarine bacteria and eukaryotic organelles. Here we report the discovery of group II introns in a ...
  • Sanders, Robert W.; Gast, Rebecca J. (2011-11)
    Mixotrophy, the combination of phototrophy and heterotrophy within the same individual, is widespread in oceanic systems. Yet, neither the presence nor ecological impact of mixotrophs has been identified in an Arctic marine ...
  • Pineda, Jesus; DiBacco, Claudio; Starczak, Victoria R. (2005)
    Late stage larvae (cyprids) of the barnacle Semibalanus balanoides frequently encounter freezing conditions along the northwest Atlantic coast. S. balanoides cyprids survived for more than 4 weeks embedded in sea ice, and ...
  • Wei, Chih-Lin; Rowe, Gilbert T.; Hubbard, G. Fain; Scheltema, Amelie H.; Wilson, George D. F.; Petrescu, Iorgu; Foster, John M.; Wicksten, Mary K.; Chen, Min; Davenport, Roe; Soliman, Yousria; Wang, Yuning (Inter-Research, 2010-01-28)
    Macrobenthos of the deep, northern Gulf of Mexico (GoM) was sampled with box cores (0.2 m2) along multiple cross-depth transects extending from depths of 200 m to the maximum depth of the basin at 3700 m. Bathymetric (depth) ...
  • Ketten, Darlene R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-11)
    Necropsy and histologic findings for examinations performed on beaked whales stranding between October, 1999 and June, 2002 are summarized and the finding interpreted. They are presented in chronological order of exams ...
  • Johnson, Mark P.; Madsen, Peter T.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2004-12-07)
    Beaked whales (Cetacea: Ziphiidea) of the genera Ziphius and Mesoplodon are so difficult to study that they are mostly known from strandings. How these elusive toothed whales use and react to sound is of concern because ...
  • Tyack, Peter L.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Moretti, David J.; Southall, Brandon L.; Claridge, Diane E.; Durban, John W.; Clark, Christopher W.; D'Amico, Angela; DiMarzio, Nancy A.; Jarvis, Susan; McCarthy, Elena; Morrissey, Ronald; Ward, Jessica; Boyd, Ian L. (Public Library of Science, 2011-03-14)
    Beaked whales have mass stranded during some naval sonar exercises, but the cause is unknown. They are difficult to sight but can reliably be detected by listening for echolocation clicks produced during deep foraging ...
  • Sancho, Gorka (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-04)
    Coral reef fishes aggregate to spawn on certain locations of reefs. This thesis is an extensive investigation of the behavioral and ecological relations between spawning reef fishes, predators and their environment at a ...
  • van der Hoop, Julie M.; Moore, Michael J.; Fahlman, Andreas; Bocconcelli, Alessandro; George, Clay; Jackson, Katharine; Miller, Carolyn A.; Morin, David; Pitchford, Thomas; Rowles, Teresa K.; Smith, Jamison; Zoodsma, Barb (2013-03)
    Protracted entanglement in fishing gear often leads to emaciation through reduced mobility and foraging ability, and energy budget depletion from the added drag of towing gear for months or years. We examined changes in ...
  • Curran, Mary C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
    The family Labridae, or wrasses, is one of the most speciose fish families and is exceptional in its wide range of morphological and behavioral diversities. The cunner Tautogolabrus adspersus is one of two temperate-dwelling ...
  • Le Clainche, Yvonnick; Levasseur, Maurice; Vezina, Alain; Dacey, John W. H.; Saucier, Francois J. (National Research Council Canada, 2004-06-23)
    The dimethylsulfide (DMS) production model NODEM (Northern Oceans DMS Emission Model) was coupled with the water column ocean model GOTM (General Ocean Turbulence Model) that includes a two-equation k&150;ε turbulence ...
  • Belkovitch, V. M.; Shekotov, M. N. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993)
    This monograph presents new original material on the behavior and bioacoustic signals of the belukha whale in its natural environment. A typological classification of the species' signals is based on researches that were ...
  • McMahon, Kelton W.; Ambrose, William G.; Johnson, Beverly J.; Sun, Ming-Yi; Lopez, Glenn R.; Clough, Lisa M.; Carroll, Michael L. (Inter-Research, 2006-04-03)
    We assessed the digestibility and utilization of ice algae and phytoplankton by the shallow, subtidal benthos in Ny Ålesund (Kongsfjord) on Svalbard (79°N, 12°E) using chlorophyll a (chl a), essential fatty acids (EFAs) ...
  • Rowe, Gilbert T.; Polloni, Pamela T.; Haedrich, Richard L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-07)
    Bottom samples were collected in the Gulf of Maine during July, 1971 and June, 1972 using DSRV ALVIN and RV GOSNOLD. The techniques and results are embodied in a paper entitled "Quantitative Biological Assessment of the ...
  • McElroy, Anne Elizabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-02)
    The fate of [14C- 121 benz(a)anthracene (BA) was followed in benthic microcosm experiments in the presence and absence of the polychaete Nereis virens. In concert with chemical analysis of BA and its metabolites in all ...
  • Caswell, Hal (Public Library of Science, 2011-06-29)
    The net reproductive rate measures the expected lifetime reproductive output of an individual, and plays an important role in demography, ecology, evolution, and epidemiology. Well-established methods exist to calculate ...
  • Jacobs, Molly W.; Sherrard, Kristin M. (Ecological Society of America, 2010-12)
    The presumed trade-off between offspring size and quality predicted by life history theory is often invoked to explain the wide range of propagule sizes observed in animals and plants. This trade-off is broadly supported ...
  • Mann, David A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-09)
    While many fishes are known to produce sounds during courtship and aggression, the information contained in the sounds and their role in reproduction is not well understood. This thesis is an intensive investigation of ...
  • Sasaki, Glenn Craig (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-01)
    Proximate analysis was carried out on developing Homarus americanus Milne Edwards larvae and eggs. Lipids were further analyzed for class and fatty acid composition. During embryogenesis, triacylglycerol supplied most ...
  • Whalen, Kristen E.; Lane, Amy L.; Kubanek, Julia; Hahn, Mark E. (Public Library of Science, 2010-01-06)
    Despite the profound variation among marine consumers in tolerance for allelochemically-rich foods, few studies have examined the biochemical adaptations underlying diet choice. Here we examine the role of glutathione ...
