• Biogeography of polychaete worms (Annelida) of the world 

      Pamungkas, Joko; Glasby, Christopher J.; Costello, Mark (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
    • Global warming is causing a more pronounced dip in marine species richness around the equator 

      Chaudhary, Chhaya; Richardson, Anthony J.; Schoeman, David S.; Costello, Mark (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The latitudinal gradient in species richness, with more species in the tropics and richness declining with latitude, is widely known and has been assumed to be stable over recent centuries. We analyzed data on 48,661 marine ...
    • Principles for creating a single authoritative list of the world’s species 

      Garnett, Stephen T.; Christidis, Les; Conix, Stijn; Costello, Mark; Zachos, Frank E.; Banki, Olaf S.; Bao, Yiming; Barik, Saroj K.; Buckeridge, John Stewart; Hobern, Donald; Lien, Aaron; Montgomery, Narelle; Nikolaeva, Svetlana; Pyle, Richard L.; Thomson, Scott A.; van Dijk, Peter Paul; Whalen, Anthony; Zhang, Zhi-Qiang; Thiele, Kevin R. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Lists of species underpin many fields of human endeavour, but there are currently no universally accepted principles for deciding which biological species should be accepted when there are alternative taxonomic treatments ...
    • Quantifying sample completeness and comparing diversities among assemblages. 

      Chao, Anne; Kubota, Yasuhiro; Zelený, David; Chiu, Chun-Huo; Li, Ching-Feng; Kusumoto, Buntarou; Yasuhara, Moriaki; Thorn, Simon; Wei, Chih-Lin; Costello, Mark; Colwell, Robert K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      We develop a novel class of measures to quantify sample completeness of a biological survey. The class of measures is parameterized by an order q ≥ 0 to control for sensitivity to species relative abundances. When q = 0, ...
    • Taxonomy as the key to life. 

      Costello, Mark (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Taxonomy is a key to life not only in providing guides to distinguishing species but in opening the door to knowledge about biodiversity. Names of species, as the only standardised measure of biodiversity, are essential ...
    • Time machine biology : cross-timescale integration of ecology, evolution, and oceanography 

      Yasuhara, Moriaki; Huang, Huai-Hsuan May; Hull, Pincelli; Rillo, Marina C.; Condamine, Fabien L.; Tittensor, Derek P.; Kučera, Michal; Costello, Mark; Finnegan, Seth; O’Dea, Aaron; Hong, Yuanyuan; Bonebrake, Timothy C.; McKenzie, N. Ryan; Doi, Hideyuki; Wei, Chih-Lin; Kubota, Yasuhiro; Saupe, Erin E. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Direct observations of marine ecosystems are inherently limited in their temporal scope. Yet, ongoing global anthropogenic change urgently requires improved understanding of long-term baselines, greater insight into the ...
