We propose a framework to map ES in continuous time-series, based on which we further quantify interactions among multiple ES.
Nature reserve requirements for landscape-dependent ungulates: The case of endangered takin (Budorcas taxicolor) in Southwestern China
Published on December 21, 2017
To determine the key landscape characteristics of the endangered takin (Budorcas taxicolor), we systematically surveyed for their occurrence in the Northern MinShan Mountains, China, during 2010–2011.
Predation by alewife on lake trout fry emerging from laboratory reefs: Estimation of fry survival and assessment of predation potential
Published on February 18, 2014
This study tested the prediction that fry showing typical swimming and avoidance behavior over artificial reefs will differ in survival when alewives are present versus when alewives are absent.

An exploratory survey of five offshore islands in the Egyptian Red Sea has been undertaken to evaluate the importance of natural resources in terms of biodiversity and serve as baseline study.
The influence of land cover composition and groundwater on thermal habitat availability for brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis) populations in the United States of America
Published on January 1, 2010
Brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis) is a sentinel fish species that requires clean, cold water habitats generally resulting from landscapes that allow for surface water flows devoid of sediment and contaminants and high groundwater discharge of cold water

Smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieu) introduced nearly 50 years ago have established a permanent population in Little Moose Lake, NY.
Artisanal fisheries and NTZs in Nabq, Egypt: effect on gleaned molluscs and reef top benthic assemblages
Published on November 11, 2014
To assess the effects of these NTZs on gleaned molluscs and on the reef top benthic assemblages, a survey of edible molluscs was undertaken within NTZs boundaries, and in four adjacent fished areas.
Otolith chemistry as a fisheries management tool after flooding: the case of Missouri River gizzard shad
Published on February 11, 2018
We used otolith chemistry to quantify Hipple Lake’s natal contribution to Lake Sharpe’s gizzard shad population and forecast effects of connectivity loss on the reservoir’s socioeconomically important walleye fishery.
