Understanding the pattern of connectivity among populations is crucial for the development of realistic and spatially explicit population models in marine systems. Here we analysed variation at eight microsatellite loci to assess the genetic structure and to infer patterns of larval dispersal for a brooding coral, Seriatopora hystrix, at an isolated system(More)
Coral reefs are in decline worldwide, and marine reserve networks have been advocated as a powerful management tool for maximizing the resilience of coral communities to an increasing variety, number, and severity of disturbances. However, the effective design of reserves must account for the spatial scales of larval dispersal that affect the demography of(More)
Primer pairs for ten microsatellite loci for the damselfish Chromis margaritifer were isolated from a genomic DNA library. The loci were optimised and tested on 48 individuals from a single sampling site. Using three multiplex reactions, each primer pair amplified good quality, reliable and polymorphic product. Number of alleles ranging from 4 to 31 per(More)
Approximately one quarter of zooxanthellate coral species have a depth distribution from shallow waters (<30 m) down to mesophotic depths of 30-60 m. The deeper populations of such species are less likely to be affected by certain environmental perturbations, including high temperature/high irradiance causing coral bleaching. This has led to the hypothesis(More)
Understanding the evolutionary processes that have shaped existing patterns of genetic diversity of reef-building corals over broad scales is required to inform long-term conservation planning. Genetic structure and diversity of the mass-spawning hard coral, Acropora tenuis, were assessed with seven DNA microsatellite loci from a series of isolated and(More)
This paper reflects on some significant trends and achievements in Information Systems (IS) theorizing in Australia. Important themes identified as typifying Australian eclecticism are (i) the influence of socio-technical thinking ; (ii) design and action approaches; (iii) critical theory research; (iv) emphasis on theory and theoretical foundations; and(More)
We utilized a spatial and temporal analyses of genetic structure, supplemented with ecological and oceanographic analysis, to assess patterns of population connectivity in a coral reef fish Chromis margaritifer among the unique and remote atolls in the eastern Indian Ocean. A subtle, but significant genetic discontinuity at 10 microsatellite DNA loci was(More)
In this chapter we discuss the adoption of inter-organizational information systems (IOIS). We define IOIS as systems that allow operational information to be sent across organizational boundaries (Johnston & Vitale, 1988). By 'op-erational information' we mean information that is directly used by business processes that support commercial relationships(More)
