      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)
