Larval Size and Recruitment Mechanisms in Fishes: Toward a Conceptual Framework
Miller, Thomas J.; Crowder, Larry B.; Rice, James A.; Marschall, Elizabeth A. (1988)
Understanding the mechanisms controlling recruitment in fishes is a major problem in fisheries science. Although the literature on recruitment mechanisms is large and growing rapidly, it is primarily species specific. ...
Fish Cohort Dynamics: Application of Complementary Modeling Approaches
DeAngelis, Donald L.; Rose, Kenneth A.; Crowder, Larry B.; Marschall, Elizabeth A.; Lika, D. (1993)
The recruitment to the adult stock of a fish population is a function of both environmental conditions and the dynamics of juvenile fish cohorts. These dynamics can be quite complicated and involve the size structure of ...
Assessing Population Responses to Multiple Anthropogenic Effects: A Case Study with Brook Trout
Marschall, Elizabeth A.; Crowder, Larry B. (1996)
Population declines are often caused by multiple factors, including anthropogenic ones that can be mitigated or reversed to enhance population recovery. We used a size-classified matrix population model to examine multiple ...
Growth Rate Variation and Larval Survival: Inferences from an Individual-Based Size-Dependent Predation Model
Rice, James A.; Miller, Thomas J.; Rose, Kenneth A.; Crowder, Larry B.; Marschall, Elizabeth A.; Trebitz, Anett S.; DeAngelis, Donald L. (1993)
We used an individual-based Monte Carlo simulation model to explore how changes in the mean and variance of growth rates of individuals in a larval fish cohort interact with size-dependent predation to affect the number and ...
Selective Predation by Blue Crabs on the Gastropod, Bittium varium: Confirmation From Opercula Found in the Sediments
Wright, Russell A.; Crowder, Larry B.; Martin, Thomas H. (1996)
Small blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun, 43-70 mm carapace width) can influence the size-distribution of the gastropod, Bittium varium, strongly reducing the contribution of snails >3 mm shell length in field enclosures. ...
Development and Use of Matrix Models to Evaluate Alternative Management Approaches for Restoring Biological Populations
Crowder, Larry B.; Heppell, Selina S.; Marschall, Elizabeth A. (1998-04)
Density-dependent Survival as a Function of Size in Juvenile Salmonids in Streams
Marschall, Elizabeth A.; Crowder, Larry B. (1995)
The bioenergetic mechanism of density-dependent survival in juvenile stream salmonids was modeled using the relationship between density, food availability, and body size for a foodlimited stream system. With a ...
