Patterns of recruitment and abundance of corals along the Great Barrier Reef
Different physical and biological processes prevail at different scales. As a consequence, small-scale experiments or local observations provide limited insights into regional or global phenomena.Expand

RECRUITMENT FAILURE, LIFE HISTORIES, AND LONG‐TERM DECLINE OF CARIBBEAN CORALS
Population decline, local extinction, and recovery are profoundly influenced by variation in demography and life-history traits. In open populations, changes in patterns of recruitment may also haveExpand

Supply-side ecology works both ways: The link between benthic adults, fecundity, and larval recruits
"Supply-side" ecology recognizes the potential role that recruitment plays in the local population dynamics of open systems. Apart from the applied fisheries literature, the converse link betweenExpand

Competition between scleractinian corals and macroalgae : an experimental investigation of coral growth, survival and reproduction
Abstract Macroalgae are a major component of many coral reef flat communities, and are potentially major competitors with corals. The influence of macroalgae on several demographic parameters of fourExpand

A LONG-TERM STUDY OF COMPETITION AND DIVERSITY OF CORALS
Variations in interspecific competition, abundance, and alpha and beta diversities of corals were studied from 1962 to 2000 at different localities on the reef at Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef,Expand

Environmental and geometric constraints on Indo-Pacific coral reef biodiversity
The Indo-Australian Archipelago supports the world's richest coral reef biodiversity hotspot. Traditional hypotheses that account for such exceptional biodiversity have highlighted the importance ofExpand

Interspecific competition reduces fitness in scleractinian corals
Abstract Interspecific competition is widely regarded as an important structuring mechanism in coral assemblages, yet there is little evidence available to determine what influence it has on theExpand

DETECTING REGIONAL VARIATION USING META-ANALYSIS AND LARGE-SCALE SAMPLING: LATITUDINAL PATTERNS IN RECRUITMENT
Regional-scale variation of recruitment by marine organisms may reflect geographic patterns in adult stock sizes or fecundities, large-scale hydrodynamic features that influence the transport ofExpand

Edge effects on fauna in fragmented seagrass meadows
Fragmented habitats are a common occurrence in many marine systems, but remain poorly studied in comparison to their terrestrial counterparts. Here, I show that crustaceans inhabiting fragmentedExpand

Seasonality and lunar periodicity in the reproduction of Pocilloporid corals
Reproductive seasonality and lunar periodicity of planula release were investigated for the three brooding coralsPocillopora damicornis, Seriatopora hystrix, andStylophora pistillata at Heron IslandExpand
