    • A novel framework for analyzing conservation impacts: evaluation, theory, and marine protected areas. 

      Mascia, Michael B; Fox, Helen E; Glew, Louise; Ahmadia, Gabby N; Agrawal, Arun; Barnes, Megan; Basurto, Xavier; ... (20 authors) (Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2017-07)
      Environmental conservation initiatives, including marine protected areas (MPAs), have proliferated in recent decades. Designed to conserve marine biodiversity, many MPAs also seek to foster sustainable development. As is ...
    • Biological and Physical Factors Affecting the Natural History and Evolution of Encapsulated Development 

      von Dassow, Yasmin Jahanara (2016)
      The evolution of reproductive strategies involves a complex calculus of costs and benefits to both parents and offspring. Many marine animals produce embryos packaged in tough egg capsules or gelatinous egg masses attached ...

      Lindner, Alberto; Cairns, Stephen D; Cunningham, Clifford W (PLoS One, 2008-06-18)
      Shallow-water tropical reefs and the deep sea represent the two most diverse marine environments. Understanding the origin and diversification of this biodiversity is a major quest in ecology and evolution. The most prominent ...
    • Integrating simultaneous prosocial and antisocial behavior into theories of collective action. 

      Basurto, Xavier; Blanco, Esther; Nenadovic, Mateja; Vollan, Björn (Sci Adv, 2016-03)
      Trust and cooperation constitute cornerstones of common-pool resource theory, showing that "prosocial" strategies among resource users can overcome collective action problems and lead to sustainable resource governance. ...
