Opportunistic exploitation: an overlooked pathway to extinction.

Opportunistic exploitation: an overlooked pathway to extinction.
Trends Ecol Evol. 2013 Apr 4;
Authors: Branch TA, Lobo AS, Purcell SW
Abstract
How can species be exploited economically to extinction? Past single-species hypotheses examining the economic plausibility of exploiting rare species have argued that the escalating value of rarity allows extinction to be profitable. We describe an alternative pathway toward extinction in multispecies exploitation systems, termed ‘opportunistic exploitation’.

Riding the crimson tide: mobile terrestrial consumers track phenological variation in spawning of an anadromous fish.

Riding the crimson tide: mobile terrestrial consumers track phenological variation in spawning of an anadromous fish.
Biol Lett. 2013;9(3):20130048
Authors: Schindler DE, Armstrong JB, Bentley KT, Jankowski K, Lisi PJ, Payne LX
Abstract
When resources are spatially and temporally variable, consumers can increase their foraging success by moving to track ephemeral feeding opportunities as these shift across the landscape; the best examples derive from herbivore-plant systems, where grazers migrate to capitalize on the seasonal waves of vegetation growth.

Addressing assumptions: variation in stable isotopes and fatty acids of marine macrophytes can confound conclusions of food web studies

MN Dethier, *EA Sosik, *AWE Galloway, DO Duggins, *CA Simenstad. 2013. Feature Article, open access. Marine Ecology Progress Series 478:1-14.

*Authors from SAFS
Research on food webs increasingly relies on sampling biomarkers (stable isotopes and fatty acids) in consumers and their potential prey. In studies of macroalgal and seagrass biomarkers in the northeast Pacific, Dethier and coworkers found substantial variation in biomarkers across dates and sites.
