- ... Red sea urchins (Strongylocentrotus franciscanus), residing in shallow habitats in Bodega Bay, California are morphologically distinct and possibly enhance recruitment by spawning larvae and sheltering juveniles. This suggests shallow beds of urchins would be ideal candidates for harvest refugia promoting the production of larvae to replenish deeper harvested habitats. Red urchins from shallow bed ...

- ... The Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) population in Brownington Pond, Vermont, declined between 1986 and 1989. Watermilfoil covered ≈10‐11 ha of the littoral zone in 1986. Less than 0.5 ha remained in 1989. An herbivorous weevil (Euhrychiopsis lecontei), which is native to North America, was found associated with this watermilfoil population and we hypothesized that this weevil played ...
