    M Tim Tinker

    Ecol Appl 16:2293-312. 2006
    ..More broadly, we have illustrated how the powerful and relatively straightforward tools of information-theoretic-based model fitting can be used to sort through and parameterize quite complex demographic modeling frameworks...
  2. pmc Food limitation leads to behavioral diversification and dietary specialization in sea otters
    M Tim Tinker
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Center for Ocean Health, 100 Shaffer Road, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:560-5. 2008
    ..Individuality in foraging behavior adds complexity to both the fitness consequences of prey selection and food web dynamics, and it may figure prominently as a diversifying process over evolutionary timescales...

    M Tim Tinker
    U S Geological Survey, Western Ecological Research Center, Long Marine Laboratory, 100 Shaffer Road, Santa Cruz, California 95060, USA
    Ecol Appl 18:1781-94. 2008
    ..Our approach provides guidance for the acquisition of further data and a means of forecasting the consequence of specific management actions. Similar methods could aid in the management of other recovering populations...

    Sora L Kim
    Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, University of California Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, California, USA
    PLoS ONE 7:e45068. 2012
