S. Geange, J. White, H. Kindsvater, L. Rogers, C. McDermott, and C. St Mary assisted with data collection. Logistic support was provided by the UCB Gump Research Station. An earlier draft of our manuscript was greatly improved by constructive comments from S. Morgan and two anonymous reviewers. Authors' contributions: J. S. Shima and C. W. Osenberg jointly obtained the initial funding (NSF OCE-0242312 and an ISAT Linkage Grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand) for empirical work. J. S. Shima and C. W. Osenberg devised the sampling protocols, collected data, and supervised RAs who also contributed to data collection. J. S. Shima analyzed the data, E. G. Noonburg conducted the modelling, all authors contributed to the conceptual framework, writing, and the Marsden grant (Royal Society of New Zealand) that funded this synthesis.
