Vertebrate bone is composed of three main cell types, the most prominent of which are the osteocytes. These cells are thought to play a fundamental role in bone physiology, however they are entirely absent in most extant species of teleosts, a group that comprises...

Background. Insufficient quantities of freshly harvested Limnoperna fortunei gametes and embryos constrain reproduction research in the laboratory. Cryopreservation would allow the accumulation and storage of gametes when they are available. The lack of available...

The Bertalanffy-Pütter growth model describes mass m at age t by means of the differential equation dm/dt = p⋅ma−q⋅mb. The special case using the Bertalanffy exponent-pair a=2/3 and b=1 is most common (it corresponds to the von Bertalanffy growth function VBGF...

Understanding trophodynamics of estuarine and marine ecosystems is important in developing food-web models prevalent in ecosystem-based approaches to fisheries management, as well as assessing ecosystem condition and function. Few studies have examined seasonal...

Stream temperature is an important exogenous factor influencing populations of stream organisms such as fish, amphibians, and invertebrates. Many states regulate stream protections based on temperature. Therefore, stream temperature models are important, particularly...

Long-term time series are necessary to better understand population dynamics, assess species' conservation status, and make management decisions. However, population data are often expensive, requiring a lot of time and resources. What is the minimum population...

Ocean acidification, the ongoing decline of surface ocean pH and [CO32-] due to absorption of surplus atmospheric CO2, has far-reaching consequences for marine biota, especially calcifiers. Among these are teleost fishes, which internally calcify otoliths, critical...

To be effective, a modern marine scientist must be more than smart - they must be skilled. There is extensive literature decrying the state of statistics training at most universities, and it is almost a cliche to say that students should be better communicators...

Fish are sensitive to temperature, but the intergenerational consequences of maternal exposure to high temperature on offspring adaptive behaviour and underlying mechanisms are unknown. Here we show that a thermal maternal stress induces emotional and cognitive...
