Tidal and turbidity effects on the shallow-water fish assemblage of Kuwait Bay
Effects of location, diel period, tidal condition and water clarity on the size and distribution of the shallow water fish assemblage of the non-estuarine Kuwait Bay, were investigated using a beach seine and a small ...
Circulation time, blood reserves and extracellular space in a cephalopod
Octopus vulgaris Cuvier has a fully enclosed blood system that includes large blood sinuses behind the eyes and around the gut. It would be useful to know the mean circulation time, the minimal number of heartbeats needed ...
Carbon cycling in the Arctic Archipelago: the export of Pacific carbon to the North Atlantic
(European Geosciences Union, 2009-01)
The Arctic Ocean is expected to be disproportionately sensitive to climatic changes, and is thought to be an area where such changes might be detected. The Arctic hydrological cycle is influenced by: runoff and precipitation, ...
Compartmental models of nitrogen cycling in tropical and temperate marine environments
Time-course measurements of super(15)N tracer kinetics in particulate organic and in NH super(+) sub(4) pools from tropical and temperate regions were used to test several compartmental models describing the exchange of ...
Optical detection and assessment of algal blooms
Concerns about harmful algal blooms (HABs) have grown in recent years. There is a pressing need for robust, quantitative, and cost-effective methods to detect and characterize algal blooms. Critical applications of these ...
Pacific Salmon in Hot Water: Applying Aerobic Scope Models and Biotelemetry to Predict the Success of Spawning Migrations
(University of Chicago Press, P.O. Box 37005 Chicago IL 60637 USA, [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org], [URL:http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/], 2008-12)
Concern over global climate change is widespread, but quantifying relationships between temperature change and animal fitness has been a challenge for scientists. Our approach to this challenge was to study migratory ...
Spatial variation in right whale food, Calanus finmarchicus, in the Bay of Fundy
No abstract available.
Relationships between vertical mixing and photoadaptation of phytoplankton: Similarity criteria
In their natural environment phytoplankton are exposed to fluctuations in incident irradiance due to vertical displacements in the water column induced by turbulent fluid motion. A reaction-diffusion model is analyzed to ...
Fatty acids as dietary tracers in benthic food webs
(Inter-Research, Nordbuente 23 Oldendorf/Luhe 21385 Germany, 2011)
Fatty acid (FA) analysis is a well-established tool for studying trophic interactions in marine habitats. However, its application to benthic food webs poses 2 particular challenges. First, unlike pelagic zooplankton, ...
Individual Variation in Migration Speed of Upriver-Migrating Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River in Relation to Their Physiological and Energetic Status at Marine Approach
(University of Chicago Press, P.O. Box 37005 Chicago IL 60637 USA, [mailto:email@example.com], [URL:http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/], 2008)
Little research has examined individual variation in migration speeds of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) in natural river systems or attempted to link migratory behavior with physiological and energetic status on a ...
