Can intense predation by bears exert a depensatory effect on recruitment in a Pacific salmon population?

Can intense predation by bears exert a depensatory effect on recruitment in a Pacific salmon population? Oecologia. 2014 Aug 26; Authors: Quinn TP, Cunningham CJ, Randall J, Hilborn R Abstract It has long been recognized that, as populations increase in density, ecological processes affecting growth and survival reduce per capita recruitment in the next generation. … Continue reading

Integrating scientific guidance into marine spatial planning.

Integrating scientific guidance into marine spatial planning. Proc Biol Sci. 2014;281(1781):20132252 Authors: Rassweiler A, Costello C, Hilborn R, Siegel DA Abstract Marine spatial planning (MSP), whereby areas of the ocean are zoned for different uses, has great potential to reduce or eliminate conflicts between competing management goals, but only if strategically applied. The recent literature … Continue reading

Predation by bears drives senescence in natural populations of salmon.

Related Articles Predation by bears drives senescence in natural populations of salmon. PLoS One. 2007;2(12):e1286 Authors: Carlson SM, Hilborn R, Hendry AP, Quinn TP Abstract Classic evolutionary theory predicts that populations experiencing higher rates of environmentally caused (“extrinsic”) mortality should senesce more rapidly, but this theory usually neglects plausible relationships between an individual’s senescent condition … Continue reading
