What drives community change on large spatial scales? An opportunity to address this fundamental question was provided by a massive subtidal recruitment of the mussel, Mytilus edulis , across the southwest Gulf of Maine (GOM), USA, in 1995. Since M. edulis is consumed by many predator species, we...
We explored foraging strategies used by marine animals to search for prey by examining the relative importance of information exchange and memory in a cold ocean environment from 1998 to 2000. Recent technological advances have increased our knowledge of the foraging patterns of marine predators,...
