Spatial patterns of biodiversity are inextricably linked to their collection methods, yet no synthesis of bias patterns or their consequences exists. As such, views of organismal distribution and the ecosystems they make up may be incorrect, undermining countless ecological and evolutionary studies.…

Nielsen, E. S., Henriques, R., Beger, M., & Heyden, S. (2021). Distinct interspecific and intraspecific vulnerability of coastal species to global change. Global Change Biology. doi:10.1111/gcb.15651 https://doi.org/10.1111/gcb.15651

Characterising and predicting species responses to anthropogenic global change is one of the key challenges in contemporary ecology and conservation. The sensitivity of marine species to climate change is increasingly being described with forecasted species distributions, yet these rarely account fo…

The spectre of increasing impacts on exploited fish stocks in consequence of warmer climate conditions has become a major concern over the last decades. It is now imperative to improve the way we project the effects of future climate warming on fisheries. While estimating future climate‐induced chan…

Natural history specimens are widely used across ecology, evolutionary biology and conservation. Although biological sex may influence all of these areas, it is often overlooked in large-scale studies using museum specimens. If collections are biased towards one sex, studies may not be representativ…

Deep-sea mining on the Rio Grande Rise (Southwestern Atlantic): A review on environmental baseline, ecosystem services and potential impacts. Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers, 145, 31–58. doi:10.1016/j.dsr.2018.12.007 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.dsr.2018.12.007

The Rio Grande Rise is an extensive seamount region in the South-western Atlantic, with potential for deep-sea mining activities in the future. Such activities pose significant long-term disturbances and potentially severe impacts to both ecosystem structure and functioning, as well as associated ec…

Aquaculture has grown rapidly over the last three decades expanding at an average annual growth rate of 5.8% (2005–2014), down from 8.8% achieved between 1980 and 2010. The sector now produces 44% of total food fish production. Increasing demand and consumption from a growing global population are d…

In multiple regression Y ~ β0 + β1X1 + β2X2 + β3X1 X2 + ɛ., the interaction term is quantified as the product of X1 and X2. We developed fractional-power interaction regression (FPIR), using βX1M X2N as the interaction term. The rationale of FPIR is that the slopes of Y-X1 regression along the X2 gr…

Journal of Thermal Biology, 92, 102692. doi:10.1016/j.jtherbio.2020.102692 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jtherbio.2020.102692

Mangroves are ideal habitat for a variety of marine species especially brachyuran crabs as the dominant macrofauna. However, the global distribution, endemicity, and latitudinal gradients of species richness in mangrove crabs remains poorly understood. Here, we assessed whether species richness of m…

Salvadeo, C., Auliz-Ortiz, D. M., Petatán-Ramírez, D., Reyes-Bonilla, H., Ivanova-Bonchera, A., & Juárez-León, E. (2020). Potential poleward distribution shift of dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus) along the southern California Current System. Environmental Biology of Fishes, 103(8), 973–984. doi:10.1007/s10641-020-00999-0 https://doi.org/10.1007/s10641-020-00999-0

The dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus Linnaeus, 1758) is an epipelagic top-predator that is globally distributed in tropical and subtropical waters. In the Eastern Tropical and Subtropical Pacific, this fish represents a target species for commercial and recreational fisheries. Climate change is affe…
