    • Inferring functional extinction based on sighting records 

      Jaric, Ivan; Gessner, Jörn; Solow, Andrew (2016-04)
      The term functional extinction is used to describe a permanent failure of reproduction or recruitment in a population. Functional extinction results in a truncation of the age distribution, but this can be very difficult ...

      Fuchs, Heidi L.; Solow, Andrew R.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2010-06)
      Marine larval dispersal is affected by hydrodynamic transport and larval behavior, but little is known about how behavior affects large-scale patterns of dispersal and recruitment. Intertidal habitats are characterized by ...

    • Marine biological diversity : report of a meeting of the Marine Biological Diversity Working Group 

      Eiswerth, Mark E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-03)
      On August 3 - 4, 1989, the Marine Policy Center of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution hosted the initial meeting of the Marine Biological Diversity Working Group. The formation of this working group was fostered as part ...
    • Marine harmful algal blooms, human health and wellbeing : challenges and opportunities in the 21st century 

      Berdalet, Elisa; Fleming, Lora E.; Gowen, Richard J.; Davidson, Keith; Hess, Philipp; Backer, Lorraine C.; Moore, Stephanie K.; Hoagland, Porter; Enevoldsen, Henrik O. (2015-10-01)
      Microalgal blooms are a natural part of the seasonal cycle of photosynthetic organisms in marine ecosystems. They are key components of the structure and dynamics of the oceans and thus sustain the benefits that humans ...
    • Marine reserve effects on fishery profits : a comment on White et al. (2008) 

      Hart, Deborah R.; Sissenwine, Michael P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2008-12-22)
      A recent study (White et al. 2008) claimed that fishery profits will often be higher with management that employs no-take marine reserves than conventional fisheries management alone. However, this conclusion was based on ...
    • Method for reconstructing climate from fossil beetle assemblages 

      Huppert, Amit; Solow, Andrew R. (Royal Society, 2004-04-19)
      Fossil beetle remains have been used to reconstruct temperatures. One method by which these reconstructions are made--the Mutual Climatic Range method--is based on the overlap of the observed modern climatic ranges of the ...
