Local Replenishment of Coral Reef Fish Populations in a Marine Reserve
If natal homing of larvae is a common life-history strategy, the appropriate spatial scales for the management and conservation of coral reefs are likely to be much smaller than previously assumed.
Spatial and temporal patterns of mass bleaching of corals in the Anthropocene
Coral reefs in the present day have less time than in earlier periods to recover from bleaching events, and Tropical reef systems are transitioning to a new era in which the interval between recurrent bouts of coral bleaching is too short for a full recovery of mature assemblages.

Climate change and coral reef connectivity
This review assesses and predicts the impacts that rapid climate change will have on population connectivity in coral reef ecosystems, using fishes as a model group. Increased ocean temperatures are…

The results show that for parentage inference in natural populations, careful consideration of the number and quality of markers will increase the accuracy of assignments and mitigate the effects of incomplete sampling of parental populations.
Dispersal of Grouper Larvae Drives Local Resource Sharing in a Coral Reef Fishery
After continents divide: comparative phylogeography of reef fishes from the Red Sea and Indian Ocean
The Red Sea is an evolutionary incubator, occasionally contributing species to the adjacent Indian Ocean, and elevated endemism and species export indicate a need for enhanced conservation priorities for the Red Sea.

Comparing movement, reef-fidelity, and ocean migration for tiger sharks, Galeocerdo cuvier, across the Coral Sea, with an emphasis on New Caledonia shows the Chesterfield Islands appear to be important habitat for sub-adults and adult male tiger sharks.

Butterflyfishes with strong reliance on corals appear to be constrained to settle in habitats that provide access to essential prey resources, precluding their use of distinct juvenile habitats.
Recovery without resilience: persistent disturbance and long-term shifts in the structure of fish and coral communities at Tiahura Reef, Moorea
Ongoing disturbances appear to have prevented recovery of many important coral species and had subsequent effects on the community structure of coral-feeding butterflyfishes.
