Graham, Larissa J., Mark L. Botton, David Hata, Robert E. Loveland, and Brian R. Murphy Prosomal-width-to-weight relationships in American horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus): examining conversion factors used to estimate landings

Page 238, Equation 1. The y-intercept variable reads "b" and it should read "loge(b)."

Page 241, Table 3. The third entry horizontally in the boxhead of the table reads "b" and it should read "[log.sub.e](b)." Likewise, "SE(b)" should read "SE [loge(b)]."

The table should read as follows:
Table 3
The number of individuals sampled (n), coefficient values
(a, [log.sub.e](b)), standard errors for values (SE[a],
SE[[log.sub.e](b)]), and correlation coefficient ([r.sub.2])
of the relationship between prosomal width and weight for
horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus), loge(Wt)=[log.sub.e]
(PW) x a + [log.sub.e](b). Samples were collected during the
Horseshoe Crab Research Center trawl survey (i.e., inshore
continental shelf waters between New York and Virginia),
spawning surveys (i.e., New Jersey, Delaware, New
Hampshire), and the commercial fishery (i.e., Delaware).
All regressions are significant (([alpha]=0.05).
