Decadal trends in marine reserves reveal differential rates of change in direct and indirect effects
Decadal-scale observations of marine reserves suggest that indirect effects on taxa that occur through cascading trophic interactions take longer to develop than direct effects on target species.Expand

Critical science gaps impede use of no-take fishery reserves.
As well as serving valuable biodiversity conservation roles, functioning no-take fishery reserves protect a portion of the fishery stock as insurance against future over-fishing. So long as there isExpand

Larval retention and connectivity among populations of corals and reef fishes: history, advances and challenges
The extent of larval dispersal on coral reefs has important implications for the persistence of coral reef metapopulations, their resilience and recovery from an increasing array of threats, and theExpand

Yet another review of marine reserves as reef fishery management tools
[Extract] The term "marine reserves" is defined in this chapter to simply mean "no-fishing" areas in the marine environment, that is, areas permanently closed to fishing. The goal in this chapter isExpand

Adaptive management of the Great Barrier Reef: A globally significant demonstration of the benefits of networks of marine reserves
The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) provides a globally significant demonstration of the effectiveness of large-scale networks of marine reserves in contributing to integrated, adaptive management.Expand

Larval Export from Marine Reserves and the Recruitment Benefit for Fish and Fisheries
Marine reserves, areas closed to all forms of fishing, continue to be advocated and implemented to supplement fisheries and conserve populations. However, although the reproductive potential ofExpand

Marine reserve benefits local fisheries
The utility of no-take marine reserves as fisheries-management tools is controversial. It is hypothesized that marine reserves will help to sustain fisheries external to them by becoming netExpand

Effectiveness of marine protected areas in the Philippines for biodiversity conservation.
Quantifying the extent to which existing reserves meet conservation objectives and identifying gaps in coverage are vital to developing systematic protected-area networks. Despite widespreadExpand

Marine Reserves: Rates and Patterns of Recovery and Decline of Large Predatory Fish
A major objective of the use of marine reserves in management of coral reef fisheries is protection of a critical spawning stock biomass to ensure recruitment supply to fished areas via larvalExpand

The biomass of large herbivorous grazing fish on the shallow reef crest of Myrmidon Reef, Great Barrier Reef, is 7.0 times that on the reef slope (15 m depth), and 2.3 times that on the reef flat.Expand
