Broad salinity tolerance in the invasive lionfish Pterois spp. may facilitate estuarine colonization

Environmental Biology of Fishes, 98(1), 135–143.

Ecosystem fragmentation drives increased diet variation in an endemic livebearing fish of the Bahamas

Ecology and Evolution, 4(16), 3298–3308.

author keywords: Bahamas mosquitofish; food webs; individual specialization; niche variation; predation; RNA/DNA ratios; stable isotopes
TL;DR: It is shown that fragmentation-induced release from predation led to increased G. hubbsi population densities, which consequently led to lower mean growth rates, likely as a result of higher intraspecific competition for food, suggesting that habitat fragmentation can greatly impact the ecology of resilient populations.

Unexpected phenological responses of butterflies to the interaction of urbanization and geographic temperature

ECOLOGY, 95(9), 2613–2621.

author keywords: anthropogenic change; citizen science; global climate change; impervious surface; Lepidoptera; nonadditive effects; phenology; physiology; temperature; trait-based modeling
TL;DR: Although shifts toward earlier phenology are typical of species' responses to either global climate change or urbanization, it was found that their interaction delayed several Ohio butterflies' first appearance and peak abundance phenology. (via Semantic Scholar)

Does landscape context mediate the nature of density dependence for a coral reef fish?

ECOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS, 24(7), 1833–1841.

By: L. Yeager*, E. Stoner*, M. Zapata* & C. Layman n

author keywords: artificial reef; competition; condition; food web; group behavior; Haemulon plumierii; seagrass
MeSH headings : Animals; Conservation of Natural Resources; Coral Reefs; Environmental Monitoring; Fisheries; Fishes / physiology; Population Density
TL;DR: Evidence of inverse density dependence is found, where individual condition was positively related to conspecific density; landscape context had little effect, suggesting over-harvest may have detrimental effects on wild populations that extend beyond mere reductions in population size, especially for group-living species.

Diet variation of a generalist fish predator, grey snapper Lutjanus griseus, across an estuarine gradient: trade-offs of quantity for quality?

JOURNAL OF FISH BIOLOGY, 85(2), 264–277.

By: L. Yeager*, C. Layman n & C. Hammerschlag-Peyer*

author keywords: compensatory feeding; food web; growth; prey quality; prey quantity
MeSH headings : Animals; Diet; Estuaries; Feeding Behavior; Florida; Food Chain; Perciformes / growth & development; Perciformes / physiology; Predatory Behavior; Rivers
TL;DR: Diet, prey quality and growth for a generalist fish predator, grey snapper Lutjanus griseus, at five sites across an estuarine gradient in the Loxahatchee River estuary indicate that L.griseus may be able to compensate for lower quality prey upstream by consuming more, and thus individuals are able to maintain similar levels of energy balance and growth rates across the estuarist gradient.
