Using seabird and whale distribution models to estimate spatial consumption of krill to inform fishery management

Victoria Warwick-Evans, Natalie Kelly, Luciano Dalla Rosa, Ari Friedlaender, Jefferson Hinke, Jeong-Hoon Kim, Nobuo Kokubun, Jarrod Santora, Eduardo Secchi, Elisa Seyboth & Philip Trathan
Ecosystem dynamics at the north-west Antarctic Peninsula are driven by interactions between physical and biological processes. For example, baleen whale populations are recovering from commercial harvesting against the backdrop of rapid climate change, including reduced sea-ice extent and changing ecosystem composition. Concurrently, the commercial harvesting of Antarctic krill is increasing, with the potential to increase the likelihood for competition with and between krill predators and the fishery. However, understanding the ecology, abundance, and spatial distribution...

Data From: Applying empirical dynamic modeling to distinguish abiotic and biotic drivers of population fluctuations in sympatric fishes

Ben Wasserman, Tanya Rogers, Stephan Munch & Eric Palkovacs
Fluctuations in the population abundances of interacting species are widespread. Such fluctuations could be a response to abiotic factors, biotic interactions, or a combination of the two. Correctly identifying the drivers are critical for effective population management. However, such effects are not always static in nature. Nonlinear relationships between abiotic factors and biotic interactions make it difficult to parse true effects. We used a type of nonlinear forecasting, empirical dynamic modeling, to investigate the context-dependent...

MODIS Sea ice leads detections using a U-Net

Jay Hoffman, Steven Ackerman, Yinghui Liu, Jeffrey Key & Iain McConnell
Sea ice leads are long and narrow sea ice fractures. Despite accounting for a small fraction of the Arctic surface area, leads play a critical role in the energy flux between the ocean and atmosphere. As the volume of sea ice in the Arctic has declined over recent decades, it is increasingly important to monitor the corresponding changes in sea ice leads. An approach described in Hoffman et al. 2021 uses artificial intelligence (AI) to...

Warming in the land of the midnight sun: breeding birds may suffer greater heat stress at high- vs low-Arctic sites

Ryan O'Connor, Audrey Le Pogam, Kevin Young, Oliver Love, Christopher Cox, Gabrielle Roy, Francis Robitaille, Kyle Elliott, Anna Hargreaves, Emily Choy, Grant Gilchrist, Dominique Berteaux, Andrew Tam & François Vézina
Rising global temperatures are expected to increase reproductive costs for wildlife as greater thermoregulatory demands interfere with reproductive activities. However, predicting the temperatures at which reproductive performance is negatively impacted remains a significant hurdle. Using a thermoregulatory polygon approach, we derived a reproductive threshold temperature for an Arctic songbird–the snow bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis). We defined this threshold as the temperature at which individuals must reduce activity to suboptimal levels (i.e., < 4-times basal metabolic rate)...

Lisa B. Eisner & Mike W. Lomas
Phytoplankton community composition and size structure vary considerably between oligotrophic and eutrophic regions (areas of low or high macro and micronutrients (e.g., iron)) (Hill et al., 2005; Martin et al., 1989; Strom et al., 2006; 2016), between surface and subsurface depths (Hill et al., 2005), and with season (Moran et al., 2012) and climatic conditions (Batten et al., 2021). Phytoplankton represent the base of the food web providing energy for zooplankton, which in turn support...

Coastal infrastructure alters behavior and increases predation mortality of threatened Puget Sound steelhead smolts

Megan Moore & Barry Berejikian
Fundamental movements of migratory species can be substantially influenced by marine habitat disruptions caused by coastal infrastructure. The Hood Canal Bridge (HCB) spans the northern outlet of Hood Canal in the Salish Sea, extends 4.6 meters (15 ft) underwater, and forms a partial barrier for steelhead migrating from Hood Canal to the Pacific Ocean. Spatial mark-recapture survival models using acoustic telemetry data indicate that only 49% (2017; 95% CI = 40, 58%) and 56% (2018;...

Supplementary data, code, and information for ‘Global Temperature Patterns in Past Centuries: An interactive presentation’ (Earth Interactions, Mann et al. 2000)

M. Mann, E. Gille, R. Bradley, M. Hughes, J. Overpeck, F. Keimig & W. Gross
The recent availability of global networks of annual or seasonal resolution proxy data, combined with the few long instrumental and historical climate records available during the past few centuries, make it possible now to reconstruct annual and seasonal spatial patterns of temperature variation, as well as hemispheric, global-mean, and regional temperature trends, several centuries back in time. Reconstructions of large-scale global or hemispheric trends during centuries past can place the instrumental assessments of climate during...

Data from: Two for the price of one: eDNA metabarcoding reveals temporal and spatial variability of mussel and fish co-distributions in Michigan riverine systems

Wes Larson
Freshwater mussels (family Unionidae) are among the world’s most endangered taxa, with almost 75% of North American taxa classified as a species of concern, threatened, or endangered. Despite the critical importance of comprehensive distributional data for the conservation of unionids and fishes, these data are often lacking because of the labor and resources associated with traditional survey methods. During their larval stage, unionid mussels use various fish species as obligate hosts, making native fish species...

Kyne, Michel Bariche, Kimani Kitson-Walters, Francesco Tiralongo, Demetris Kletou, Taner Yildiz, Nir Stern, Sara A.A. Al Mabruk, Mohammed Adel, Nejmeddine Bradai, Shevy B.S. Rothman, Vasileios Minasidis, Stephanie J. Green, Jennifer N. Solomon, Holden E. Harris, Philip E. Karp … & James V Hart
The invasion of lionfish (Pterois volitans and P. miles) in the Western Atlantic is perhaps the best studied marine fish invasion to date; meanwhile another lionfish invasion is rapidly evolving in the Mediterranean. We reviewed lionfish management policies from several decades in the Western Atlantic to suggest policy recommendations for the Mediterranean. These strategic recommendations are synthesized in our corresponding manuscript titled: “Lessons from the Western Atlantic lionfish invasion can inform policy and management strategies...

Combining population genomics with demographic analyses highlights habitat patchiness and larval dispersal as determinants of connectivity in coastal fish species

Halvor Knutsen, Diana Catarino, Lauren Rogers, Marte Sodeland, Morten Mattingsdal, Marlene Jahnke, Jeffrey Hutchings, Ida Mellerud, Sigurd Espeland, Kerstin Johanneson, Olivia Roth, Michael Hansen, Sissel Jentoft, Carl Andre & Per Erik Jorde
Gene flow shapes spatial genetic structure as well as the potential for local adaptation of populations. Among marine animals with non-migratory adults, the presence or absence of a pelagic larval stage is thought to be a key determinant in shaping gene flow and the genetic structure of populations. In addition, the spatial distribution of suitable habitats will influence the distribution of biological populations and their pattern of gene flow. We used whole genome sequencing to...

A reconstruction of parasite burden reveals one century of climate-associated parasite decline

Chelsea Wood, Rachel Welicky, Whitney Preisser, Katie Leslie, Natalie Mastick, Correigh Greene, Katherine Maslenikov, Luke Tornabene, John Kinsella & Timothy Essington
Long-term data allow ecologists to assess trajectories of population abundance. Without this context, it is impossible to know whether a taxon is thriving or declining to extinction. For parasites of wildlife, there are few long-term data – a gap that creates an impediment to managing parasite biodiversity and infectious threats in a changing world. We produced a century-scale time series of metazoan parasite abundance and used it to test whether parasitism is changing in Puget...

Dietary plasticity linked to divergent growth trajectories in a critically endangered sea turtle

Matthew Ramirez, Larisa Avens, Anne Meylan, Donna Shaver, Angela Stahl, Peter Meylan, Jamie Clark, Lyndsey Howell, Brian Stacy, Wendy Teas & Kelton McMahon
Foraging habitat selection and diet quality are key factors that influence individual fitness and metapopulation dynamics through effects on demographic rates. There is growing evidence that sea turtles exhibit regional differences in somatic growth linked to alternative dispersal patterns during the oceanic life stage. Yet, the role of habitat quality and diet in shaping somatic growth rates is poorly understood. Here, we evaluate whether diet variation is linked to regional growth variation in hawksbill sea...
