ELASMOBRANCH REFERENCES FOR META-ANALYSES

We have provided data references used in

Frisk, M. G., T. J. Miller and M. J. Fogarty (2001). Estimation and analysis of biological parameters in elasmobranch fishes: a comparative life history study. Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences: 58:,

and

Frisk, M. G., T. J. Miller and N. Dulvy. (2004). Life histories and vulnerability to exploitation of elasmobranchs: Inferences from elasticity, perturbation and phylogenetic analysis. Journal of Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Science: Volume 34,.

Several existing compilations of data were of great assistance in both analyses. Dr. Nicholas Dulvy provided many data sources from his personal data library and several compilations of elasmobranchs life history data were used including:

Walker, P.A. 1994. Ecoprofile: rays and skates on the Dutch continental shelf and North Sea. NIOZ Publication no: 3053.

Smith, S.E., Au, D.W., and Show, C. 1998. Intrinsic rebound potentials of 26 species of Pacific sharks. Marine and Freshwater Research 49: 663-78.

Cortés, E. 2002. Incorporating uncertainty into demographic modeling: application to shark populations and their conservation. Conservation Biology 16 (4): 1048-1062.

Cortés, E. 2000. Life history patterns and correlation in sharks. Reviews in Fisheries Science. 8(4): 299-344.

A full list of references is available here. Data (Excel format) are also available

We are grateful to all the scientists that have contributed to understanding and advancing the life history and understanding of elasmobranchs. We would not be able to put together these analyses without there dedication.
