Trace metals and the ecology of marine cyanobacteria
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
The marine cyanobacteria Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus are important primary producers in oligotrophic oceans. The abundance and cell division rates of these cyanobacteria can be influenced by trace metals such as iron ...
Mark-recapture statistics and demographic analysis
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
Mark-recapture analysis of populations is becoming an important tool in population biology. Mark-recapture methods can be used to estimate transition probabilities among life-stages from capture histories of marked individuals ...
Distribution, growth, and transport of larval fishes and implications for population dynamics
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2021)
The early life stages of marine fishes play a critical role in population dynamics, largely due to their high abundance, high mortality, and ease of transport in ocean currents. This dissertation demonstrates the value of ...
