The guild approach to categorizing estuarine fish assemblages: a global review
Many studies have recently described and interpreted the community structure and function of fishes inhabiting estuaries and other transitional waters in terms of categories or guilds. The latterExpand
Comparisons between the roles played by estuaries in the life cycles of fishes in temperate Western Australia and Southern Africa
Although only one marine species was restricted to estuaries at any particular interval of its life cycle in south-western Australia, the juveniles of a number of marine species were confined toEstuaries in temperate southern Africa. Expand
Ecology of larval and metamorphosing lampreys
Ammocoetes are relatively sedentary burrowing animals. Movement is related to water discharge, temperature, and season, and occurs predominantly downstream and at night. Growth is asymptotic and se...
The ways in which fish use estuaries: a refinement and expansion of the guild approach
This study refines, clarifies and, where necessary, expands details of the guild approach developed by Elliott et al. (2007), for the ways in which fish use estuaries, to comprise four categories, that is, marine, estuarine, diadromous and freshwater, with each containing multiple guilds. Expand
Reproductive biology of the blue swimmer crab (Portunus pelagicus, Decapoda: Portunidae) in five bodies of water on the west coast of Australia
Portunus pelagicus attained maturity at a significantly greater size in the large embayment than in the four more southern bodies of water, where water temperatures were lower and the densities of crabs and fishing pressure were greater. Expand
Data on the bycatch fishery and reproductive biology of mobulid rays (Myliobatiformes) in Indonesia
Some of the only fisheries and quantitative biological data for the Mobulidae (manta and devil rays), a group of large pelagic species that are widely distributed in tropical and warm temperate waters are provided. Expand
The Petromyzoniformes with particular reference to paired species
Significant differences have been found between the larvae of nonparasitic lampreys and those of their parasitic ancestor in such features as the number of oocytes, trunk myomeres, and size at the onset of metamorphosis. Expand
Comparisons between the diets of four abundant species of elasmobranchs in a subtropical embayment: implications for resource partitioning
The diets of one ray species and three shark species undergo size-related changes and differ among these species in the nearshore waters of a large subtropical embayment (Shark Bay) in which these elasmobranchs are abundant, thereby reducing the potential for competition for food within and among these four species.
