Does coastal light pollution alter the nocturnal behavior and blood physiology of juvenile bonefsh (Albula vulpes)?
© 2017 Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science of the University of Miami. Light pollution is a prevalent, but often overlooked, ecological concern in a variety of ecosystems. Marine environments are subjected ...
Does capture method or the presence of aquatic protected areas influence the selective harvest of behavioural types in largemouth bass?
© 2017, Canadian Science Publishing. All rights reserved. Selectively removing fish based on particular traits, such as body size, may shift trait abundance in the remaining population, resulting in a phenomenon called ...
Activity syndromes and metabolism in giant deep-sea isopods
How sailfish use their bills to capture schooling prey.
The istiophorid family of billfishes is characterized by an extended rostrum or 'bill'. While various functions (e.g. foraging and hydrodynamic benefits) have been proposed for this structure, until now no study has directly ...
A Call for Evidence-Based Conservation and Management of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources
© 2017, American Fisheries Society. Natural resource management agencies implement conservation policies with the presumption that they are effective and of benefit to aquatic ecosystems. However, it is often difficult to ...
Injury-mediated decrease in locomotor performance increases predation risk in schooling fish.
The costs and benefits of group living often depend on the spatial position of individuals within groups and the ability of individuals to occupy preferred positions. For example, models of predation events for moving prey ...
Effects of emergence time and early social rearing environment on behaviour of Atlantic salmon: consequences for juvenile fitness and smolt migration.
Consistent individual differences in behaviour have been well documented in a variety of animal taxa, but surprisingly little is known about the fitness and life-history consequences of such individual variation. In wild ...
Utility of biological sensor tags in animal conservation.
Electronic tags (both biotelemetry and biologging platforms) have informed conservation and resource management policy and practice by providing vital information on the spatial ecology of animals and their environments. ...
