Phylogeography Of The Flag Cabrilla Epinephelus Labriformis (Serranidae): Implications For The Biogeography Of The Tropical Eastern Pacific And The Early Stages Of Speciation In A Marine Shore Fish, Mathew T. Craig, Phillip A. Hastings, Daniel J. Pondella Ii, D. Ross Robertson, Jorge A. Rosales-Casián

Daniel Pondella

To examine the role of previously described biogeographical boundaries in shaping phylogeographical relationships within and among two putative eastern Pacific sibling species, the flag cabrilla, Epinephelus labriformis and the Clipperton grouper, Epinephelus clippertonensis (Serranidae).


Ecology Of Marine Fishes : California And Adjacent Waters, Larry Allen, Daniel Pondella, Michael Horn Dec 2005

Ecology Of Marine Fishes : California And Adjacent Waters, Larry Allen, Daniel Pondella, Michael Horn

Daniel Pondella

Fundamental ideas in marine ecology have emerged from the study of marine fishes. This unique, authoritative, and accessible reference, compiled by 35 luminary ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and ichthyologists, provides the first-ever synthesis and interpretation of the large, often daunting, body of information on the ecology of marine fishes. Comprehensive and generously illustrated, this volume focuses on the fauna of the eastern pacific, paying particular attention to the California coast, which is among the most diverse and best studied of all marine ecosystems.


Evaluation Of Eelgrass Mitigation And Fishery Enhancement Structures In San Diego Bay, California, Daniel Pondella Ii Dec 2005

Evaluation Of Eelgrass Mitigation And Fishery Enhancement Structures In San Diego Bay, California, Daniel Pondella Ii

Daniel Pondella

To offset habitat loss and increase fishery production, an eelgrass mitigation habitat was completed in San Diego Bay, California in 1997. This mitigation effort consisted of the transplantation of eelgrass, Zostera marina L., in the western portion of the bay. In addition to the establishment of a new eelgrass bed, four enhancement reefs made of either quarry rock or concrete rubble were created to further enhance fishery stocks and the area's ecosystem. Two design criteria and a direct comparison between quarry rock and concrete reefs were examined in this 5-yr pilot program. The newly created eelgrass habitat quickly performed ...
