Robust assessments of bycatch risk are crucial for informing effective mitigation strategies, but are hampered by missing information on the distributions of key life‐history stages (adult breeders and non‐breeders, immatures and juveniles).2.Using a comprehensive biologging dataset (1,692 tracks, 788 individuals) spanning all major life‐history stages, we assessed spatial overlap of four threatened seabird populations from South Georgia, with longline and trawl fisheries in the Southern Ocean. We generated monthly population‐level distributions, weighting each life‐history stage according to population age structure based on demographic models. Specifically, we determined where and when birds were at greatest potential bycatch risk, and from which fleets.3.Overlap with both pelagic and demersal longline fisheries was highest for black‐browed albatrosses, then white‐chinned petrels, wandering and grey‐headed albatrosses, whereas overlap with trawl fisheries was highest for white‐chinned petrels.4.Hotspots of fisheries overlap occurred in all major ocean basins, but particularly the south‐east and south‐west Atlantic Ocean (longline and trawl) and south‐west Indian Ocean (pelagic longline). Overlap was greatest with pelagic longline fleets in May–September, when fishing effort south of 25°S is highest, and with demersal and trawl fisheries in January–June. Overlap scores were dominated by particular fleets: pelagic longline—Japan, Taiwan; demersal longline and trawl—Argentina, Namibia, Falklands, South Africa; demersal longline—Convention for Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) waters, Chile, New Zealand.5.Synthesis and applications. We provide a framework for calculating appropriately weighted population‐level distributions from biologging data, which we recommend for future fisheries bycatch risk assessments. Many regions of high spatial overlap corresponded with high seabird bycatch rates recorded by on‐board observers, indicating that our approach reliably mapped relative bycatch risk at large spatial scales. Implementation of effective bycatch mitigation in these high‐risk regions varies considerably. Although potential bycatch risk appears to have decreased since the early 2000s, albatross and petrel populations from South Georgia and elsewhere are still declining, emphasizing the need for much improved observer coverage and monitoring of compliance with bycatch regulations.last_img read more


first_imgCoral reefs have experienced extensive degradation across the world over the last 50 years as a result of a variety of stressors operating at a range of spatial and temporal scales. In order to assess whether declines are continuing, or if reefs are recovering, detailed baseline information is required from across wide spatial scales. Unfortunately, for some regions this information is not readily available, making future reef trajectories difficult to determine. Here we characterized the current benthic community state for coral reefs in the Wakatobi region of Indonesia, one of the most biodiverse marine regions in the world. We surveyed 10 reef sites (5, 10 and 15 m depth) to explore spatial variation in coral reef benthic communities and provide a detailed baseline. Previous data (2002–2011) were available for coral, sponges, algae and soft coral at six of our study sites. Using this information, we determined if any changes had occurred in dominance of these benthic groups. We found that benthic assemblage composition differed significantly over relatively small spatial scales (2–10 km) and hard coral cover was highly variable, ranging from 7–48% (average 19.5% ± 1.5 SE). While coral cover appears to have declined at all sites where data were available since 2002, we found little evidence for widespread increases in other benthic groups or regime shifts. Our study provides a comprehensive baseline dataset for the region that can be used in the future to determine rates of change in benthic communities.last_img read more


first_imgMotivation The molecular processes regulating molluscan shell production remain relatively uncharacterised, despite the clear evolutionary and societal importance of biomineralisation. Results Here we built the first computationally predicted gene regulatory network (GRN) for molluscan biomineralisation using Antarctic clam (Laternula elliptica) mantle gene expression data produced over an age-categorised shell damage-repair time-course. We used previously published in vivo in situ hybridisation expression data to ground truth gene interactions predicted by the GRN and show that candidate biomineralisation genes from different shell layers, and hence microstructures, were connected in unique modules. We characterised two biomineralisation modules of the GRN and hypothesise that one module is responsible for translating the extracellular proteins required for growing, repairing or remodelling the nacreous shell layer, whereas the second module orchestrates the transport of both ions and proteins to the shell secretion site, which are required during normal shell growth, and repair. Our findings demonstrate that unbiased computational methods are particularly valuable for studying fundamental biological processes and gene interactions in non-model species where rich sources of gene expression data exist, but annotation rates are poor and the ability to carry out true functional tests are still lacking. Availability and Implementation The raw RNA-Seq data is freely available for download from NCBI SRA (Accession: PRJNA398984), the assembled and annotated transcriptome can be viewed and downloaded from molluscDB (ensembl.molluscdb.org) and in addition, the assembled transcripts, reconstructed GRN, modules and detailed annotations are all available as supplementary files.last_img read more


first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailRock Em Apparel(CHICAGO) — Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the famous 98-year-old superfan and chaplain of the Loyola-Chicago University basketball team that is on a winning streak in the NCAA Final Four has given permission to license her name and image for her beloved Ramblers.Loyola has approved more than 25 Sister Jean T-shirts from a variety of companies including Fanatics, which made a Final Four shirt with her phrase, “Worship, Work and Win,” reported ESPN.Some of the companies are seeing major sales increases since announcing their Sister Jean merchandise.“It is our bestselling bobblehead ever,” said Phil Sklar, CEO of the Milwaukee-based National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which has made about 500 different bobbleheads in the last three years.“I think Sister Jean has really captivated the nation,” Sklar said, adding that over 65 percent of sales are coming from outside Illinois. “Within 24 hours, we sold at least one bobblehead to someone in all 50 states, D.C., Canada, and the United Kingdom.”The company has been approved to sell Sister Jean bobbleheads and they’ve already had over 6,000 orders since they went on sale three days ago. The previous record was held by the Clemson National Champions bobblehead with 3,000 units sold.Another company is rapidly selling Sister Jean socks.“This is definitely the oldest person and most interesting character that we have put on a sock ever,” Rob Starkman, founder of Rock ‘Em Apparel told ABC News. “It’s great to see her enthusiasm for the [basketball] program turn into the nation’s enthusiasm for her character.”Sister Jean has drawn a huge following for her devotion to her team, attending every game while praying for the players, their health, a fair game, and a victory.She has said she trusts the school to make the decisions on licensing her name and image, ESPN reported.“We weren’t going to do anything until she gave her blessing,” Tom Sorboro, a senior associate athletic director at the school, told ESPN about the decision to begin licensing the nun’s image and name.Licensing royalties for Sister Jean products, except for the bobblehead, are set up to support the Loyola Athletic Fund, according to ESPN.Proceeds from the bobblehead sales are split between the school’s fund and Sister Jean’s Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sklar said.Rock ‘Em Apparel had as of Monday sold thousands of pairs of Sister Jean socks after they had been on sale less than 24 hours.“It’s just crazy because we got the license at 11 p.m. on Saturday,” Starkman said. “Our designers whipped up the design and the school approved them within 30 minutes. Then, it was off to races.”A portion of the sock sales go back into the Loyola-Chicago athletic program, Starkman said.Fanatics, meanwhile, has sold more Loyola products in the past 48 hours than in the rest of season combined, a spokesperson for the company told ESPN.There are also unlicensed designs, including shirts that put Sister Jean on the Air Jordan logo and a shirt takes the basketball brand And1’s logo and makes it “AndNun,” reported ESPN.The Ramblers take on Michigan on Saturday in San Antonio.Both ABC News and ESPN are owned by the Walt Disney Company.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_img Written by Associated Press Tags: BYU Cougars Football/Washington Huskies FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPROVO, Utah (AP) — Jacob Eason threw for 290 yards and three touchdowns and No. 22 Washington scored two touchdowns off three BYU turnovers to coast to a 45-19 victory on Saturday.The Huskies (3-1) totaled 470 yards on offense, with Eason completing 24 of 28 pass attempts. Aaron Fuller, his top target, tallied 91 yards on eight catches. Fuller had one touchdown catch and returned a punt 88 yards for another score.Zach Wilson threw for 277 yards and a touchdown on 26 of 42 passing to lead BYU. It wasn’t nearly enough to help the Cougars (2-2) prevent the Huskies from dominating in all three phases of the game.Washington took control behind a productive first quarter from Eason. He threw for 99 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while completing 90% of his pass attempts during the quarter. Eason capped each of his team;s two drives with a 17-yard TD pass — one to Richard Newton, the other to Fuller — to put the Huskies up 14-3.Following Lopini Katoa’s 48-yard return to midfield, BYU marched down to the Washington 20 on its second drive. It ended when Wilson coughed up a costly fumble on a sack. Brandon Wellington scooped up the loose ball and returned it 69 yards to extend the Huskies’ lead to 21-3 late in the first quarter.The Cougars’ offense found some life in the second quarter. Emmanuel Esukpa punched in a 1-yard run and Jake Oldroyd made a career-long 54 yard field goal just before halftime to cut Washington’s lead to 24-12. Oldroyd’s field goal was the first from 50 or more yards for BYU since 2006.Everything unraveled for BYU after halftime.Andre Baccellia slipped free of a tackle and caught a 35-yard TD pass from Eason, and Fuller returned a BYU punt 88 yards to give Washington a 38-12 lead with 10:37 remaining in the third quarter.
