Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus)
is an important component
of fisheries and food webs in the North
Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. However,
vital rates of early life stages of
this species have yet to be described
in detail. We determined the thermal

of ground water across state boundaries to be an impermissable
burden on the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
These judicial decrees will have far-reaching
implications on the future of the federal-state role in
Western Atlantic synodontid species were studied as part of an ongoing effort to reanalyze Caribbean shorefish diversity. A neighbor-joining tree constructed from cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) data revealed 2 highly divergent genetic lineages within both Synodus intermedius (Agassiz, 1829) (Sand Diver) and S. foetens (Linnaeus, 1766) (Inshore Lizardfish). A...
