    • Are marine protected areas a red herring or fisheries panacea? 

      Kaiser, Michel J. (National Research Council Canada, 2005-05-31)
      Chronic failures in marine fisheries management have led some to suggest that marine protected areas (MPAs) are the solution to achieve sustainable fisheries. While such systems work for certain habitat-specific and nonmobile ...
    • Are there eco-metrics for fisheries? 

      Steele, John H. (2005-11-03)

    • The challenge to detect and attribute effects of climate change on human and natural systems 

      Stone, Daithi; Auffhammer, Maximilian; Carey, Mark; Hansen, Gerrit; Huggel, Christian; Cramer, Wolfgang; Lobell, David; Molau, Ulf; Solow, Andrew R.; Tibig, Lourdes; Yohe, Gary (Springer, 2013-08-30)
      Anthropogenic climate change has triggered impacts on natural and human systems world-wide, yet the formal scientific method of detection and attribution has been only insufficiently described. Detection and attribution ...
    • Changes in work habits of lifeguards in relation to Florida red tide 

      Nierenberg, Kate; Kirner, Karen; Hoagland, Porter; Ullmann, Steven G.; LeBlanc, William G.; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Fleming, Lora E.; Kirkpatrick, Barbara (2010-06-15)
      The marine dinoflagellate, Karenia brevis, is responsible for Florida red tides. Brevetoxins, the neurotoxins produced by K. brevis blooms, can cause fish kills, contaminate shellfish, and lead to respiratory illness in ...
    • CHANS : Florida red tides and coastal populations as a coupled nature-human system 

      Hoagland, Porter; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Hitchcock, Gary; Kohler, Kate; Lovko, Vince; Ullmann, Steven G.; Reich, Andrew; Fleming, Lora E. (2013-10-28)
      Coupled nature-human (CNH) systems are now the focus of a growing number of inter-disciplinary research programs worldwide. As implied by the term “coupled,” these systems in-volve interactions between humans and nature, ...
    • CHANS : modeling the dynamics of HABs, human communities, and policy choices along the Florida Gulf Coast 

      Hoagland, Porter; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Hitchcock, Gary; Ullmann, Steven G.; Reich, Andrew; Fleming, Lora E.; Jin, Di; Beet, Andrew R.; Li, Cathy; Garrison, Bruce; Lovko, Vince; Kohler, Kate; Rudge, Katrin (2015-11-19)
      Coupled human-nature systems (CHANS) involve dynamic interactions between humans and nature, often influenced by and affecting the distinct dynamic characteristics of each component. We present an overview of an ongoing ...
    • CHANS : the characteristics of cost-effective policy responses for harmful algal blooms [poster] 

      Hoagland, Porter; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Hitchcock, Gary; Ullmann, Steven G.; Reich, Andrew; Fleming, Lora E.; Jin, Di; Beet, Andrew R.; Li, Cathy; Garrison, Bruce; Lovko, Vince; Kohler, Kate; Rudge, Katrin (2015-11-11)
      A growing concern for coastal management is the choice of appropriate public or private responses to HABs as a natural hazard. Considerable efforts have been devoted to understanding the scientific aspects of HABs, ...
    • Characterizing the error in the estimated age-depth relationship 

      Solow, Andrew R. (Dept. of Geosciences, University of Arizona, 2003)
      It is common practice to estimate the age of undated material extracted from a sediment core from radiocarbon or other radiometric dates of samples taken above and below the extracted material. This paper presents a simple ...
