- Carbon isotope fractionation of amino acids in fish muscle reflects biosynthesis and isotopic routing from dietary proteinKelton W McMahon
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Joint Program in Oceanography and Ocean Engineering, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA 02543, USA
J Anim Ecol 79:1132-41. 2010..6. Our study is the first to investigate the expression of AA Delta(13)C(C-D) values for a marine vertebrate and should provide for significant refinements in studies of diet, habitat use and migration using stable isotopes...

Centre for Coral Reef Biodiversity, School of Marine Biology and Aquaculture, James Cook University, Townsville, Qld 4811, Australia
Curr Biol 15:1314-8. 2005..The degree of local retention indicates that marine reserves can provide recruitment benefits not only beyond but also within their boundaries...
- Local replenishment of coral reef fish populations in a marine reserveGlenn R Almany
Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and School of Marine and Tropical Biology, James Cook University, Townsville QLD 4811, Australia
Science 316:742-4. 2007..If natal homing of larvae is a common life-history strategy, the appropriate spatial scales for the management and conservation of coral reefs are likely to be much smaller than previously assumed...
