Southern New England salt marsh vegetation and habitats are changing rapidly in response to sea-level rise. At the same time, fiddler crab (Uca spp.) distributions have expanded and purple marsh crab (Sesarma reticulatum) grazing on creekbank vegetation has -level rise and reduced predation pressure drive these changing crab populations but most studies focus on one species; Cited by: Yellowtail flounder i.n the Southern New England-Middle Atlantic grounds have been reduced to extremely low abundance as a result of heavy'fishing mortality combined with very poor recruitment.

In the latitude of southern New England this tree is seldom encountered except in bogs, while farther north, where it is much more generally distributed, the dwarfed bog form of it is so distinct from the form that grows on uplands that the two are commonly treated as distinct species.1 In the Pacific Northwest there apparently is no tree which.

INTRODUCTION One interest of ecologists over the last half century has been to understand the underlying processes and mechanisms responsible for community species diversity patterns (e.g., see Connell and OriasMacArthur and Levins, PaineHarperPaine and VadasJanzenPiankaMenge and Sutherland, Connell.

Using the barnacle--seaweed assemblage common in New England rocky intertidal habitats, I tested the hypothesis that species interactions switch from negative to positive at sites across the Cape Cod faunal barrier because of latitudinal variation in thermal stress and predation intensity between these regions.
